tan and fat
So this was our desperation in Nassau--a freaking Starbucks, just to get net access. we're so sad.
Back home as of yesterday, great trip, crummy email backlog, including a gloomy message from Richard Peabody of Paycock Press--Gravity Dancers: More Fiction from Washington Area Women is still a 'go', but it's the 2nd to last project he has in the pipeline, given the state of the economy. We're looking at May/June, with a possible launch at Politics & Prose. Frankly, this is better news (for me, since I have a story in GD) than I expected, given the ambitious nature of the anthology series.
Peabody's depression contrasts sharply with that of Barry Graham's enthusiasm from a recent interview .
Recessions suck, but it does seem like there are opportunities for small, very flexible enterprises that aren't available in better times.
