Andy Remic podcast

Here's a nice coincidence: I'm currently reading Andy Remic's novel War Machine (and loving it so far), and I just discovered via Fantasy Book Critic that Remic will is putting out his novels War Machine and Spiral on the internet as podcasts, read by Andy Remic with background music provided by rock band the3 m1ss1ng.  They'll be coming out at about a chapter a week on

I think this is a really cool idea.  I especially like the musical aspect- I've written before about the combination of music and books, and the idea of a book "soundtrack," so it's great to see it actually being made a reality.  I look forward to seeing how this progresses.

Worlds colliding

You know, I hate to turn into one of those grumpy old codgers carrying on about how ridiculously long the holiday season has gotten nowadays.  Nevertheless, I have to ask: why, when I went to my local Walgreens a full week ago, October 6th, were they already selling Christmas cookies?  Christmas cookies, mind, in a store with an entire aisle dedicated to Halloween candy and decorations.  Please to explain.  I don't want to see the different holidays bleeding into each other like this.  By early December, they'll probably have the Easter candy out.
