Heads up, chickens!

Okay okay okay okay okay.


So apparently Jules and Eisha over at 7-Imp do not sleep.  I have done some meticulous research and decided this is the case because just LOOK at the breaking news they done hath broke over at their site today.  They’ve an "in" when it comes to farm animals and MySpace.  I shall say no more.  Between that, interviewing people by the bazillions, reviewing books, and organizing the Robert’s Snowflake blogosphere auction challenge… well, the evidence is overwhelming.  Sleep they do not do. 

I sleep, but sparingly.  Maybe I can get Eisha to lend me her Jules or Jules to lend me her Eisha.  In the meantime I’ve an article of my own up at Foreword Magazine called Breaking Out of the Mold (and Suffering As a Result). It’s fun.  And check out my face on the right-hand side.  I’m HUGE!!!  MONSTROUS!  GIGANTOR!

    Great article in Foreword! I love the way those books push the envelope, and I’m glad you’re tooting their horns. Hey, it’s cool that they made an illustration of your photo. I hope you got a copy. Really, it’s not too gigantor at all.

  2. Hey, thanks for the shout-out, and congrats on the excellent article. I hope that as more of these envelope-pushing highly-illustrated novels appear they’ll have to create some kind of special award just for them. Maybe they’ll name it the Fuse…
