Merry Magic Monday!


I like Mondays. On Monday, I am refreshed from the weekend and exhilarated by the possibilities of the week ahead. I also like magic. I like its history, its intersection with technology, and its crafty use of human nature. I figured I’d combine the two and make a Monday feature that is truly me: a little bit of magic and a look at the week ahead.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?


I *will* finish McSweeney’s Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales this week because it contains my last story for Deal Me In. I would have read more of The Magician and the Cardsharp last week, but my hands were achy and it’s a lovely, heavy hardback. Started Ghostwriter Anonymous by Noreen Wald. So far, so good.
