No, I don’t get the day off. I’m here at work having just finished meeting with the rep who sells me Johns Hopkins University Press books among others. Coincidentally, he’s also the man behind Old Earth Books, who published Things Will Never be the Same by Howard Waldrop. The more I hear about Waldrop, the more I think I need to read him.
As you can see in the right hand column, I’ve finished the Engineer trilogy and moved onto something quite different. I’m a fan of Mary Roach. I thought Stiff was hilarious and informative. Bonk is turning out to be much the same, which is a good thing. I find myself laughing and then saying “I didn’t know that!”
