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.
Carisa Hendrix, magician and all-around sideshow gal, presents an illusion that mixes an automaton, some history, and a little modern dance. It’s rough around the edges, but still pretty neat.
It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?
After finishing Tim Pratt’s Heirs of Grace and bouncing between books for a couple days, I’ve settled on Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker. Settled…except for the moments when I’m more in the mood for Bret Easton Ellis’s Lunar Park. It’s *hard* being a mood reader!
Both books are for #Weirdathon. There’s still a teeny bit of time to sign up for #weirdathon if you haven’t already. (Sign-ups end the 15th!)
What Am I Writing?
I’m not ready to face my Abbott stories yet. Instead, I’m going to work on putting together a collection of David P. Abbott’s writings from Open Court magazine. It’ll give me a good opportunity to reread his articles.
