Weekend Update

It just didn’t seem right to put some of the more sordid headlines I’d collected last week next to the announcement of Terry Pratchett’s death, so I posted a truncated from of Friday Links yesterday.

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I used to publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
