Welcome to Biting-Edge, a blog shared by authors and vampire experts, Mario Acevedo and Jeanne Stein. We’ll cover urban fantasy, vampires, pop culture, and all things Joss Whedon. Unlike other fantasy blogs, we don’t insist on body cavity searches (unless you ask politely). Snarkiness is most welcome...though we won't promise not to bite back!

Grist for the writing mill:

A new class of electronics can dissolve and disappear on a pre-set schedule, within a few minutes or a few years, depending on when you want them to go away. They could live in the body and deliver drugs, they could stick on the exterior of buildings or tanks, and they can become compost instead of metal scrap--in other words, they turn the common conception of electronics completely upside down. 

Transient electronics, as they’ve been dubbed, are a combination of silk and silicon designed to work seamlessly in our bodies and in our environments. In a new study, researchers built a thermal device designed to monitor infection in a rodent and a 64-pixel digital camera--all from dissolvable material.

Can you imagine? A building or a tank dissolving into compost???? Am I reading that right? How about a body? Wow--  more  here

Next week while I'm in San Diego, I'm taking extra time to play with my sister, Connie, my cuz Ed, my oldest SisinCrime buddy, Miyoko, and to work on the new series with collaborator Samantha Sommersby. So if I'm AWOL next Thursday, you'll understand why. I'll keep up on Facebook--at least I'll try.
 
Comments:
You and Mario and Betsy will rock the con, I know it!
 
Ahh! I clicked the Anonymous button instead of the correct one. Doh! Anyhoo, have a great time.
 
We'll try Renata! We usually manage to have fun.

J.
 
Had a blast meeting you both last year - looking forward to renewing our acquaintance this weekend! I've been keeping the signed Devil Duckie on my writing desk... :D
