A half million dead drunks can't seem to teach us a single thing

Upper Rubber Boot Books' Broad Knowledge: 35 Women Up to No Good (ed. Joanne Merriam) came out last November, but due to (atypical) shipping snafus my contributor's copy just found its way to my door. Then I opened it to the back-to-back retellings of Megan Chaudhuri's "First mouse model of Innsmouth Fish-man Syndrome draft 2 USE THIS VERSION – edits by MK.doc" and Angela Slatter's "The Song of Sighs" chased with the sea-haunting ritual of Premee Mohamed's "Below the Kirk, Below the Hill" and I felt in very good company. My contribution is the not at all oceanic "Like Milkweed," inspired by a comment of [personal profile] asakiyume's about edible plants and originally published in Not One of Us #52. And that was a very nice thing to receive, because otherwise the defining event of today has been a dentist's appointment that took a lot longer than I thought it was going to. [personal profile] spatch came out with me and we picked up donuts, because what else should you eat after having your teeth cleaned?
