Writing Marathon 27

45 minutes of researching and revising the contracts for Pendragon Variety - I've sent them off for the approval stamp. I did my best to strike a balance between protecting Pendragon Variety's rights and leaving the author with any rights that we don't need. Oh, and you know what? I'd better go change our Submissions page to reflect that submissions are closed. Ahem.

There was also a minute or two of jotting down notes for reviewing "Shift" by Kim Curran. I'm only half-way through the book, so notes are about all I can do at this stage. I had started to read another book titled "Blackwood," but it turned out to have a lot less classic scifi than I was hoping and a lot more of BOO, ghosts! So, finding myself still not engaged 1/3rd of the way through, I dropped that one. "Shifter" is much more for me.  Pseudo quantum mechanics + free will = win.

Last night (day 26) was 30 minutes of writing a review for "The Six" by K. B. Hoyle, whose moralistic writing reminds me fondly of C.S. Lewis, if C. S. Lewis was reincarnated as a woman and decided to up his characters in age a bit. Oh, and there's no Jesus analogy.
