[sticky post] Amazon, Ho!


Look for https://www.createspace.com/3976299 and give this whole procedure 5-7 business days to be fully operational.

I am about to cross a barrier that I've been sniffing about for a long time, and I'm still full of trepidations concerning its fate, or that of its sister volumes of The Touching Lands Dance, but here we go. The Family Forge will soon become a real, live softcover book at about 212 pgs. (glossary included) available from Amazon.com for only $9.85! Carolyn, my editor @ WormholeElectric.com did the PDF file embeddng that stopped things cold in August. It's now undergoing a print review process, so hopefully all the files for the words and the cover will parse properly. If all goes well, I might even have some hard copies on hand at Philcon. The Kindle® e-book will still be available. May Those Beyond nod approvingly at my efforts and assist in its and my financial prosperity. 

Ure'i Apash Nal!

Answer for question 4608.

Donald Trump as presidential candidate -- what's your opinion? Among your circles of friends and family, is your opinion the norm or does your opinion of him differ from those around you?
To the Man Who Sold the World:
We, the Union of Small-Headed Babies stand by you and you plans to sub-develop the world. We await the day when you wrestle with Vladimir Putin on stage, live.

Brooklyn's getting its tram back

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/05/nyregion/a-waterfront-route-to-serve-the-poor-not-just-the-wealthy.html?module=WatchingPortal®ion=c-column-middle-span-region&pgType=Homepage&action=click&mediaId=wide&state=standard&contentPlacement=9&version=internal&contentCollection=www.nytimes.com&contentId=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2016%2F02%2F05%2Fnyregion%2Fa-waterfront-route-to-serve-the-poor-not-just-the-wealthy.html&eventName=Watching-article-click

My last fond memory of public transit was when I rode an electric bus down New York Avenue to Fulton Street with my mom. It was so quiet, with none of that annoyig Diesel noise. Now streetcars are coming back to the East River from Brooklyn into Queens. My first thought at the news was that it would be a great line o watch the fireworks on the 4th of July. I'm sure the driver wouldn't mind a couple more stops, and I could take the train home afterwards as a transfer. Riding articulated buses on teh Bx12 Limited to Fordham station and back have warmed me to the concept; it's a v. tram-like experience. Now, my home town is drifting back to normal again. I wonder if I'll be able to afford it.

Out My Window: Thanksgiving

It's Groundhog('s) Day, where's my time loop?

Good news: The Terrestrial rodents known as groundhogs saw their shadows today, apparently a portent of six additional weeks of Winter. Good for me.  Yesterday, it was so warm that I went out on rounds wearing just a sweatshirt and shorts. Socks & sandals, of course for treading past the snowy remains of last week's Blizzard of 2016.

Variety; I dressed a lot like Sasuke, the adversarial character in the animé Naruto Shippuden.  Don't know what I'll do today, as I have a medical visit scheduled. Yesterday was mildly cloudy, with overcast in the afternoon. It is the Winter Thaw, a short but joyous part of the season  when it's actually nice out. Those who are cleared to know my mundane last name will know why I celebrate it.

Anyway, the rent is paid. I plan to see Kung Fu Panda 3 schedules willing, reserve my BoltBus ticket to Boskone and to get some story work done for The New Baby Bird. Telly suggested toting my iPad® along to write on in case... you know. I dunno, maybe I will. So far, the only creativity I've come up with are a couple of lines for a subway-related song:

From Main Street down ro Hudson Yards,
There's one ride that's the best.
The Number 7 line's the Internatiional Express.

Details if they happen.

This work was Produced Under The Influence To Influence Others Positively (PUTITIOP*).  Not to be included with any other proposals at this time.
