I'm almost a duck!

I avoided quizzes this far, but I liked this one.

You Are A: Bear Cub!

bear cubBears are strong and independent creatures who roam in the forest in search of food. Bears are usually gentle, but anger one and be prepared for their full fury! You won't back down from a fight, you have a bit of a temper -- classic attributes of a bear. Intelligent and resourceful, though lazy at times, you are a fascinating creature of the wild.

You were almost a: Duck or a Kitten
You are least like a: Squirrel or a ParakeetWhat Cute Animal Are You?

Writing Goodness

THE INDENTURED TRANSOMNIAC is done. Yay! Many thanks to Michael Jasper for reading along, and being generally helpful and supportive.

Now, to find out if anyone wants to publish it...

The LIQUID LAUGHTER story is almost done. Reworking an earlier draft, so that should be submittable in a day or two.

Here's an excerpt: "He grew feverish as the steamship traveled through the Bosporos Strait. There were other seas – Marmara, Aegean – with the names that reminded him of Greek myths. But he did not feel like either Jason or Theseus; Orpheus seemed more appropriate. Dardanelles (Hellespont!) led to Lethe, where the poor daughter of Nephele waited for him, coppers on her eyes, her mouth empty and black as the sea. She had the face of the English nurse."

A review of Aeon 3, featuring my story "Just Chutney" was posted on Tangent Online. My review of the latest SCIFICTION story, "Panacea", should be posted there very soon.

Long time with no updates

Mostly due to the current events -- just didn't feel like chatting about current projects much. Everything seems quite trivial at the moment. Plus, a recent surgery seriously ate into my computer time. Regular announcements of upcoming publications and snippets will resume eventually.
