Catherynne Valente's brilliant new book, PALIMPSEST, is now available (AMAZON)

I was fortunate enough to get an early peek, and this was my reaction back then: "Gorgeously written and deliriously imaginative, PALIMPSEST is the book for those who love old maps and grow wistful at the sound of a night train. A modern masterpiece in Valente's unique voice and singular sensibility."

I hope everyone will love it as much as I did.

The Lottery ends Monday

Hurry, and win fabulous prizes -- manuscript critiques, Tuckerizations, books and other fun things here. I donated several things, including a BPAL sampler.

The Lottery benefits Shirley Jackson awards.

Valentine's Day

Not that I particularly care, but I do have a guest blog post about gift-shopping -- mostly plugging some of my fave online places. With a distinctly geeky flavor.
