Further Adventures – two new stories

Okay, so it *is* Wednesday (blame sequencing), but let’s focus on the good news: two new stories in Further Adventures! Zénobie: I’m of course thrilled to see Antryg and Joanna again – and not only do we get to hear about poltergeists, rock stars, her parents, and COOKIES, I also learned the keyboard encoding for […]

Zippy update

Happy Thanksgiving (mostly to the Americans), and hi to everyone else! I should be catching up with Barbara soon and asking about new stories/upcoming plans.  She’s been busy with teaching, and I’ve been…busy with my partner’s cancer.  Yep, about when the robot finally was getting less needy, lymphoma entered my love’s life.  It’s been a […]
