Yesterday, I was concerned for having gotten people all stirred up about my upcoming story at Pseudopod, as there was apparently a delay.
It turns out the delay could have been, from the time of my posting, measured in minutes without being inconvenient to the measurer.
This morning, then, I sit in a state of radiant giddiness, having just listened to Free Balloons for All Good Children read by a rather good narrator, Rish Outfield. Not only that, host Alasdair Stuart said some things in the following notes which brought such a state of happiness to me that I can hardly breathe at the mere memory of them. The words “Lovecraft with all his ridiculous toxic nonsense stripped away” said in conjunction with something I’m responsible for…
Sorry. Had to go lie down for a moment. I suspect this state I’m in, feet well clear of the floor, will persist for some time.
This also brings about a rather unusual state of affairs in the sidebar; two Current Stories. I don’t think this will persist beyond the time that “Free Balloons for All Good Children” is the top of Pseudopod’s roll, because even as swollen as it currently is, my ego is still governable. But, for now, my Current Story is a two-headed freak.
And I love it, in all it’s alien wrongness.
