Anthologies R Fun, with linkage

Today I got the anthology I built at, and it looks great! It's printed through Lulu, and they always do a good job (I have a comic available on Lulu, incidentally, and my mom has a collection of hysterically funny essays, and my LJ friend Barbara Kelley has a collection of her charming essays too--so I'm pretty familiar with Lulu).

I'm not sure that paragraph could have held many more links.

I love anthologies, especially themed ones. I'm all excited about getting my copies of the Black Dragon, White Dragon and the Desolate Places anthologies, both due out very soon--the former from Ricasso Press, the latter from Hadley Rille Books. I can't wait to see how other writers handled the themes. I happen to know that both anthos are at the printers, so it shouldn't be long.

In non-anthology and non-interesting news, I've had a headache all day and a skunk seems to have been run over very close to my house. This is not a good combination. Skunk stink = headache from hell anyway. In self-defense, I think I'd better take a hot shower and go to bed to watch Mythbusters. I'll take Bunny the laptop with me (to bed, I mean, obviously not in the shower) so I can pretend to get some work done too.

Is your new anthology for sale? Cause meesa buys it.

Yeah, you can buy it and also change it around if you want. I read about half of it last night and I must say, I picked some good stories. But as the kids say, YMMV.

I included my two stories in the anthology (of course) and read them over last night, and dammit if there isn't a formatting problem with "Final Episode." Two paragraphs are transposed near the end of the story. It doesn't make a big difference with readability, but it's annoying--and also my fault. And it can't be changed. So be warned.
