I haven’t been here for a while. I’ve pretty much come to the decision that I’m not cut out to be a blogger. Which, you know, I’m fine with.

I want to keep the blog online for a while, if only because I can’t bear to take down Irina’s beautiful header. I came here today to approve a new comment on my Raymond Carver short story post (my all-time most popular post, by far. Students doing papers, maybe?) and was surprised to find that I get about equal the number of visits when I’m posting regularly as when I’m not. Go figure.

It seems that reviewing short stories may be something of a public service, so maybe I’ll keep doing that. I’ve been reading Strange Horizons again lately, and I know there’s some great stuff out there in the Nebula award nominees. Gonna have to track them down.
