And ... we're back.
Thanks to the kind offices of my new volunteer webmaster, Ron Miles. Let's give him a big hand, everybody! (Thunderous applause.)
So, a lot of stuff has happened. And I don't have a lot of time to spare to get you up to speed right now. So let's give you a quick rundown.
... And you're invited! So, it's an open secret: it's my birthday in just a very few weeks, like it or not. And I'm turning sixty. So I'm throwing a little party. For 1000 or so of my closest friends.
Today, in fact. Although for me it won't actually be the 27th until I, you know. Sleep.
It's gotta be great! Look at how thrilled this little guy is!
Or at least some of the people I asked Editor Claire at Tor to send the ARCs to have got them.

an Editorial Assistant at Tor
(I'm guessing Claire Eddy
's) for my partial bibliography.
This is one.

I'd like to invite you all to join me in a triumphant Tyrannosaur Roar!
(Separately and in your own homes, of course. You do this at the mall, and we will of course disavow all knowledge of you.)
No, not this kind of wrap:
Although it does look mighty enticing.
That's a tasty, tasty cheeseburger-lettuce wrap. No, a potentially even more delicious wrap: the revised final manuscript for The Dinosaur Lords.
... Still not terrible news. Albeit a minor disappointment.
"Fuck me? Fuck you!"

Indeed, these are two of my favorite things.
Had this movie been made, it would be the greatest movie ever made.
And, no, pterosaurs are not dinosaurs. Still.
Finally! And ... finally.
This is a Sackbut!
A.k.a Parasaurolophus walkeri.
