Man, I am going crazy with the guest blogging this week. The irony is not lost on me, by the way, that I’m seemingly unable to keep my own blog up to date. Somehow if somebody invites me to write for a different site, suddenly I’m all over that. But when I remind myself to update my own blog I often tell myself to go jump in a lake. Whatever.
Anyway, today’s guest post is over at the Orbit Books blog. It’s a follow-up rumination on some of the topics that arose—too briefly—during my recent conversation with Charlie Stross about the Laundry novels.
Speaking of Stross, I had a particularly disturbing dream last night, partially inspired by reading a Laundry novel right before going to sleep last night.
I dreamed of a creepy feral child playing an accursed violin by strumming the bow across iron shackles containing the bloody severed hands of her parents.
