fall down go boom

Spent the last two days helping suricattus move to her new place, and then she and I had dinner with msdori, who was in town visiting.

Now I'm watching Friday night Sci-Fi stuff until I fall asleep.

Tomorrow it's karate, then off to the annual Port Night festivity, and then Sunday is the Super Bowl.

Then Monday, it's back to work................

help a writer in need

I'm just reposting this from Bill Crider's blog regarding fellow IAMTW member James Reasoner:

Longtime Western writer and WWA member James Reasoner and wife Livia lost their house and studio, and all their belongings, in a fire earlier this week. They're OK, as are their dogs and children, but got out with only their clothes they were wearing. Books, pulps, comics, everything else, gone. "This is totally overwhelming," James says.

To help the family, Western Writers of America and Kensington Books have agreed to make sizable contributions and ask anyone who would also like to contribute to send cash donations to the WWA Executive Director's office in Albuquerque, N.M. Make the check out to Western Writers of America and put in the memo that the money is for the James Reasoner Emergency Fund.

Checks should be mailed to:
MSC06 3770
1 University of New Mexico
Albuquerque, NM 87131-0001

Since James and Livia also lost their sizable library, donations are also being sought to help restock their bookcases whenever they have a new home. Kim Lionetti, Livia's agent at BookEnds, has generously agreed to accept any BOOK donations and keep them until the Reasoners have a place to put them. Books should be sent to:
