Macro Monday And The Otherworldly Proximity

That image is a blueberry.

Actually, it’s one blueberry among many — I was washing them one day to make muffins, and the waterdrops rested on them just so. I nabbed my camera, and there we are. An otherworldly shot — as if looking upon a bubbled dome sitting upon an alien hillock somewhere. Nobody says “hillock” anymore but fuck it, it’s an alien planet. We can go with “hillock” if we want.

Let’s see, what else is going on?

I forgot a flash fiction challenge Friday (well, I was traveling Friday and accessing my blog remotely is not always ideal in terms of inputting new content). Sorry! Eek.

I’ll be in Doylestown, PA this Tuesday at Doylestown Books to chat with Paul Tremblay, whose astonishing (and disturbing!) Disappearance at Devil’s Rock comes out.

This week is the launch of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens comics adaptation, by Luke Ross (art) and myself. So go look for that. Or BB-8 will electrocute you.

Tor-dot-com did a post about where to start with my novels, if you’re so inclined. (The comments, perhaps predictably, spend time yelling about Aftermath? I shouldn’t be surprised any more, I guess.)

The Orlando Book Festival was a blast — a great festival with wonderful fans and run by killer staff at a beautiful library. It’s also nice to see that it’s a city that stands tall in the face of tragedy and supports its LGBT citizens. (I’m sure there are gnarlier politics at work, but at least from a cursory visit, the streets and businesses were alive with support and love.)


Now go forth and slay Monday. Bring me its head. So I can take macro photos of it.
