I’m a little embarrassed by how long it has been, but let’s ignore that from now on.

Instead, let’s talk about cool stuff like new releases! It’s officially autumn, which means of course that it’s time to zoom ahead mentally to Christmas, and all the good things that happen at Christmas like vacations and snow and unexpected romances. I’m thrilled to announce that my Christmas romance, with the...

Dreamspinner Press: Experimental Repeatability by Elinor Gray 1 13 Mar 14, 2012 07:14AM  
Arthur Conan Doyle
“My dear Watson," said [Sherlock Holmes], "I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues. To the logician all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to underestimate one's self is as much a departure from truth as to exaggerate one's own powers.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I suppose I shall have to compound a felony, as usual.”
Arthur Conan Doyle

Patrick O'Brian
“I sew his ears on from time to time, sure.”
Patrick O'Brian, Post Captain

“Wit is the unexpected copulation of ideas.”
Patrick O'Brian, The Hundred Days

Patrick O'Brian
“Go and see whether the Doctor is about,’ said Jack, ‘and if he is, ask him to look in, when he has a moment.’
Which he is in the fish-market, turning over some old-fashioned lobsters. No. I tell a lie. That is him, falling down the companion-way and cursing in foreign.”
Patrick O'Brian, Blue at the Mizzen
