Hey, you might say, were you not supposed to take the day off and wonder the sun-baked streets of Nizza Monferrato?
Well, I am – just got home for a few minutes to drop the shopping bags and put some things in the refrigerator.
But it was a good thing that I took a moment to come back home, because I found my contributor copy of DreamForge Magazine #2 (the one that features my short story “Sapiens”) waiting for me in the mailbox…
… plus the galleys for an anthology that should come out in August and carries a story of mine…
… and the final editor’s rev of another story that should get out in a few weeks in another anthology.
Also, a letter by the editor that received my Sherlock Holmes pastiche, and that will give me his opinion in September.
So what can I say, it’s good to be home.
I’ll drink an ice-cold chinotto (a somewhat retro drink, if you will) to that, and then get back to Nizza, where my brother roams alone at the moment.
