“Mad Maudlin” is live on Tor.com! And the artwork for it is as beautiful as it was the first time I saw it. :-)

You know what else is live? This audio excerpt from The Tropic of Serpents. There is also a sweepstakes, if you want to win a copy of the book.

Also live: a Con or Bust auction with a pair of ARCs up for grabs. It’s your chance to get signed copies of both A Natural History of Dragons and The Tropic of Serpents, while benefiting a good cause!

Not live yet: the Kirkus review. I think that goes up tomorrow.

Live and ongoing: Letters from Lady Trent. Write! Receive! Don’t make me walk aaaaaaaaall the way to the post office for nothing! (It’s a whole ten minutes away. I could die of exhaustion, y’all. But finding letters gives me the strength to soldier on.)

I loved the opening of "Mad Maudlin" and stopped for reasons that are no fault of the story's (the setting is a little triggery for me, old boring story). I hope someday I can return to it and finish it; and in the meantime you got fantastic artwork for it indeed.

Ah, yes. I can see how anything in a psychiatric setting could be problematic for certain readers. Sorry about that. :-/

Please don't be sorry. I'm certain the rest of it is fantastic too. Just, personal circumstances. There are (sf/f) stories I read in my childhood that I probably couldn't reread now that I have experienced psychiatric hospitalization. :-p
