John and I got a popup book of "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" for his nephew. Our nephew.

Since it's been suggested that perhaps I should avoid reciting the Gashlycrumb Tinies to the kid now that he's old enough to understand them, this is perhaps an acceptable alternative. :)

(Also picked up a four-pack of small skull-shaped erasers, for personal use.)

Read an interview with Gary A. Braunbeck in Apex. Am beginning to understand appreciate get an inkling of where some of the impact from In Silent Graves may have come from. When your daughter is born and lives six days and you don't ever get to see her because you and your wife are having problems and the only chance you get to say goodbye is from an intern sneaking you into the morgue and she's going to be cremated so they didn't patch her up after the autopsy and you only ever hold her for a hundred and twenty seconds and you try to cope a little by putting some of the recollection into your work--

--yeah. Okay. It has impact.

Finished Mr. Hands and "Kiss of the Mudman". I'll be picking up the rest of his stuff, I think.
