Grad school may kill my free time, my peace of mind, my dignity, and my ability to talk about anything other than failed experiments at parties, but it can never touch my love of weird fiction.  (It’s not quite Braveheart, but it’s something, I suppose…)  Work has taken me offline for the past few weeks, but 3 of the 4 time-consuming talks that I’ve had to put together this fall are now concluded (and the 4th is almost here).  And so I am very pleased to say that regular posts on the W-F-Sa schedule will resume forthwith.

But it was a really fantastic talk–people had some great questions (and the ratio of drunken ridiculous questions to very good insightful questions was wonderfully low!), and afterward I got a LOT of tips for future reads.  (How had I never heard of the Neonomicon?)

So I’m very excited, and very happy to be back and blathering on about Lovecraft once more.  But it’s late, so right now I have only one thing left so say:
