I'm working on a couple of stories today -- "The Woman Who Shook the World-Tree" and "The Fire Gown" -- and if Sean drops by, I may request his help in plotting "Tawny Petticoats." So this will be brief.
Just in case you ever wondered what's with all the flooding along the Mississipi, here's a geological map of a short stretch of the river, showing where it has also been. It's an old river and it meanders. Simple as that. Of course, the recent and ongoing climate changes don't help matters either.
Beautiful stuff, though. You can find more such maps here.
And if you want to read more about Dancing With Bears . . .
An interview with me which, for reasons comprehensible only if you read it, was titled "As Tough as Rats," appears in Diamond Book Distributors' ezine/blog/newsletter. In it I hold forth on the origins of Darger & Surplus, my thoughts on Russia, and the one historical figure I'd most like to meet. Among, of course, other matters.
You can read "As Tough as Rats" here.
