A Writer’s Life Is Never Dull

There haven't been any writing reports for several days, because there has been very little writing going on.

And for the second time in less than a year, I'm going to have a hat trick in it: a story titled "Lex Talionis" (actually a novelette), the conclusion of a long serialized novel "Letters From Gronow Part 6", […]
