Just a quick post with some recommendations that have just surfaced, thanks to some of our friends. I can't make this a long one, because I had friends over for dinner and I've got a kitchen full of dirty dishes. (No, we didn't have hamburger heaven.) One of my friends took some photos of me - I'm sorry, but I'm so over that photo of me with the hat - and here's a couple of fun ones with me and Annie. Annie will be the subject of my next "me and my pets" blog posts.
As you can see, with Annie It's All About The Ball.
Tomorrow is day three of the Black Horse Western weekend at the Tainted Archive. It's been a smashing success so far, with tons of interesting and very valuable posts that will be viewed for a long time to come. Gary's to be congratulated.
Golden Age Comic Book Stories is a blog that Dave Lewis told me about last night. Although I havent had much of a chance yet to check it out, what I have seen is incredible. The posts are of comic book art, but not just comic book art. There's book illustrations, movie photos, you name it. It appears as if he focuses on a specific artist every day and one piece of work that they did. For example, today's post is the art work that N.C. Wyeth and Peter Hurd did for a HANS BRINKER OR THE SILVER SKATES published in 1932.
Thanks for the tip, Dave.
I know some of my followers are big science fiction readers. I'm not familiar with science fiction at all, but I know some of my readers are. I guess they're not feeling the love over here, and I apologize for that. To make up a little, let me recommend a blog, this one recommended by Barry Traylor. This one is Frederick Pohl's blog The Way the Future Blogs. If you're not familiar with Mr. Pohl, go to his biography page. He has a biography page on his blog, but it's much too modest. He sounds like a fascinating guy.
I'll wait for Barry to tell us more about him.
And one final note: I've found a few more gems in my grandfather's stories. One of them is a dog story. I would love to get this published. Matthew Mayo says that Chicken Soup for the Soul books might be a good place to start. If any of you know of any other places for dog stories, let me know.
It would be great to get this in print - the few people that I've let read it have said it made them cry - but in a good way. I know my grandfather always wanted to get more of his dog stories in print - I think he was an aspiring Albert Payson Terhune. It would be nice to see that in my lifetime for me and the rest of the family.
That's it for now. And all of you who follow the Tainted Archive go over and post something to tell Gary what a great job he did.
