In which we have shameless self-googling

In today's news, the internet has awesome things:

I really like it when people talk about my work. I also like talking about other people's work:

  • "My Dignity in Scars" by Cory Skerry: I read the demons in this fascinating story as a metaphor for cancer, maybe, an illness that takes people on a long journey away from the familiar. An illness that can become inseparable from a person's identity, and even a source of strength.
  • "Chorus of the Dead" by S.E. Gale: sorrowful and sweet, exploring the collision between a quotidian life and the enormous strangeness of death

And finally, congratulations to the winners of the Friends of the Merril Contest!
