But I digress.
In the mail today I got my pre-ordered copy of Close Encounters of the Urban Kind, edited by the lovely and talented Jennifer Brozek. It features some stories by Pacific Northwest writers that I have the distinction of knowing and loving: Nathan Crowder and Rosemary Jones.
I also see that there are contributions by other writers that I got to see at Norwescon that seemed pretty nifty, such as Alma Alexander, Erik Scott de Bie and Joshua Palmatier.
I haven't read the stories yet, but I have enough faith in the people involved to say it's gonna be good. I've missed the first two readings they've done, but I'm hoping to make their next one. If I recollect properly, it will be June 12th at Third Place Books.
