Monday: chilly fingers

Mon 24 Oct 2011 - Filed under: Not a Journal., , , | 2 Comments | Posted by: Gavin

Hmm. The heat is out at our office. Our shabby chic building—the Paragon Arts in Easthampton—has 2 furnaces. One for the 1st and 2nd floor. That one is working. The one for the 3rd floor, where, we, so sensibly are, is not. Boo hoo!

At least the electricity—and therefore the kettle—is working.

Anyway, tomorrow, when the furnace guy comes back and fixes things we’ll be celebrating publication of Maureen McHugh’s new book After the Apocalypse by posting an interview Maureen did with one of our fave writers, David Moles.

Did you see the New York Times this weekend? No? Well the best bit was this. A review by Dana Jennings of three short story collections:

By Geoff Ryman
313 pages. Small Beer Press. $16.

The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan (Volume 1)

576 pages. Subterranean Press. $38.

By Tim Powers
170 pages. Tachyon Publications. $14.95.

Almost lovely enough to warm these little fingers!

    Saw you mentioned in the NYT. Easthampton? I used to live in the house next to George’s Appliance Store. Worked in Greenfield fixing stereos at The Music Nook and occasionally floated my vw bug across Rt 5.
    I’m sure this was long before youse guys were born and George, George’s Appliance Store and the house are all gone by now. If I ever get some money I’ll buy some of your stuff–always did love sf.

    Ed, you’re right I have no idea where George’s is/was! We’ve only been based in Easthampton for 4 years—we live in Northampton: I think we have that backwards! It is a great place to work: the bike path is behind the office so we can wander into town to get a sandwich-at least, when it is dry . . .
