Good news for once-- no new fires burning in Colorado!
Next Thursday I'll be in San Diego for ComicCon and a few days of R&R-- I'll be on a panel Saturday, the 14th at 10:30, Room 5AB if you're in the neighborhood. Signing after. And then some fun with friends and family. So, I'm taking a vacation day next week...I know it'll seem dull without me, but you do still have Mario...who will be a year older on Friday...but you didn't hear that from me.
And speaking of, I loved Mario's post on the 70's--that was a strange and wonderful time.
And speaking again of Mario, the Great Gatsby is one of his favorite books. I came across this while perusing some media sites this week. This is the one piece of footage left from the earliest adaptation of the film...a 1926 trailer.
And here is a Guardian article--the Great Gatsby in pictures.

We celebrated our 4th early with a critique group party in our backyard. Here are some pics from the festivities:
