Moon and stars and snow and wolves! And that dang gun. Next week: what have the ladies have been up to?

This work week finds me busy at work on a project that will be launching next Wednesday. I hate those “OOH SECRET PROJECT I CAN’T TELL YOU ABOUT” posts that everybody falls victim to posting online; if you’re only an occasional peruser of my work, this is just your official advisory to check in sooner rather than later. Your bookshelf will thank you later.

Lastly, if you’ve been looking for some more 18th century historical fiction, I’ve been plowing through the prose novel The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, by David Mitchell.

Mitchell is a wonderful stylist, and when he’s in Historical Mode he does a marvelous job of taking a setting and wrapping it around your head. (His plotting can be rather cruel, though, so if you’re squeamish about characters being knocked around, seek comfort.)
