...feeling just a little melancholy. I just dropped off a student I know (who shall remain nameless, but is fuzzily pictured here at her favourite dinosaur exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York) for her first year at university.
To counteract any latent emotion, I'm trolling my Reader before getting down to work on the vast mountain of email that has accumulated over the past couple of weeks. I just finished reading a lovely story called The Gadgey by Alan Campbell, a fantasy-writing Scot.
If you're in the mood for a taste of the fantastic scribed (in my humble opinion) in the richest of the world's dialects, give it a go. You won't be sorry.
Link love to John Klima at Tor.com for directing my eyes to this just when I needed it.
