Lillian White Lillian White's blog:

As mentioned in an earlier blog post, there is a funeral home literally at the top of my garden. As the weather was lovely yesterday I nipped up there to take some photographs of the old headstones and my garden to illustrate what I was telling you. I also foundThe 'Preacher's Stone.'

Chelsea Mueller Chelsea Mueller's blog:

Last weekend I went to my first WorldCon (the details on MidAmeriCon II). Based on the conversations I had there, I expect this is a bit of a rite of passage. Each person is happy to tell you about their first WorldCon—London, San Antonio and Seattle were the most common—and now I can say I start...

Francesco Coratti Francesco Coratti's blog:
Il mondo gira, questo è vero, ma la felicità è spesso ferma, nascosta dietro le piccole cose. È dietro un sorriso o uno scambio di battute. È dietro un sogno. Per inseguirla, per afferrarla, bisogna scendere dalla giostra.

Paul Colt Paul Colt's blog:
A Cowboy’s word is a bond. Think about that in the context of today’s culture. How often do we look up to our idols, icons and leaders only to find they say one thing and do another? It is yet another form of cultural deceit. ‘I tell you what I think I should; or what I think you want to hear’; b... Read more of this blog post »

Missing Mornings

I miss mornings waking up
to you with your hair all a
mess after making love to
you, your shy smile on your
lips as I reach over for a
first morning kiss, causing
passionate heat and then
repeat making love to you
all over again.

Rafael Rafael's blog:
One way of categorizing independent writers is between those who love to write and those who love people to read what they write. Both perspectives are legitimate but the latter group cannot escape the need to market.

Hello, my name is Robyn and I’m a taphophile.


OMG SOUNDS SO BAD AND POSSIBLY CONTAGIOUS.


Relax. Not so bad. And definitely not contagious.


A taphophile is a lover of cemeteries (from the Greek “táphos,” which means “tomb” and from the English “phile,” which means “loving” or “friendly” or “friend”)....

The Fargenstropple Case (Terrence Morgan Mysteries)The Fargenstropple Case by Lia London

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A fun read. I got the sense of a good old-fashioned English farce. Like something that would have come out of the Pinewood film studios at the tail end of the 50s / early 60s.
