Back from the shot.

So far, no side effects from the shot itself (Moderna, if it matters). The Mango Pepsi* and Funyuns I consumed while gassing up the car, though? …Jury’s still out on those.

But if the shot wipes me out later, it wipes me out later. Small price to pay.

*…I would not call it bad. But the taste was surprising, and I’m not sure why. I mean, the bottle told me it was mango-flavored. I supposed I didn’t… believe it?

Patreon Microfiction: Divvying Up the Loot.

Divvying Up the Loot looks at the complications you might have when there’s a no-fooling Thieves’ Guild out there. I can’t imagine but that understandings might be reached. Especially if there are groups out there that both the cops and the crooks won’t like…



A nice way to end the week. Obviously, this edition of GRANTVILLE GAZETTE IX is an e-ARC, with all that entails. I know they’re not everybody’s cup of tea, but I like them.

Book of the Week: There Is No Antimemetics Division.

I grabbed the Kindle for There is No Antimemetics Division by qntm because my eldest kid is a big fan of the SCP Foundation, and I was curious about what fiction based on it looked like. It’s good! And not just ‘media tie-in good,’ either. This book holds up as fiction, and reads like it was for-real edited. You start to notice the lack of that, once you get smacked around by an editor a few times.
