And we caught a matinée of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Wow, they really darkened the movie up! And I think the film was decidedly improved for it. There was a certain Spartan feel to some of the background settings--like the absence of the ghosts in the Hogwarts halls and the decreased number of portraits, etc.--but overall I thought it was very well done. I'm giving the new director my enthusiastic stamp of approval. And the young actors have really grown into their parts.
Got an email from sdowens asking for an interview for his new blogging project, bloggasm.com as part of a new theme interview series--this one to be "Writers of Short Speculative Fiction." Very cool. Of course I agreed.
And that also prompted me to get back to work on the Aberrant Dreams interview questions that were backburnered while I worked on "Rue and Ruin." It seems that people want to know about me all of a sudden. It's way flattering and super nifty, but also sort of bewildering.
