Kelly McCullough isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.
I have picked up another panel at CONvergence from Lyda Morehouse, who wanted to drop off it. It's on writing career setbacks and how you deal with them.

“I may not have any power over it at the moment, but at some point that must change. I can be very patient. I am the end of all things, nephew mine. I shall be the last. When birth has ended, I wil cut Clotho's cord, and she will be no more. The time will come when every last thread has been measured, and I will snip Lachesis from the great weave. In the end only Death and I will remain. Then I will cut his thread, and it will be me alone. With my last strength I will close the shears on my own life. I am the end of everything, including you.”
Kelly McCullough, WebMage

“You didn't happen to install Windows when you upgraded me, did you?”

Kelly McCullough, Broken Blade
