WEB PAGES / BLOGS TO CHECK OUT:
Fantastic interview with Matt Moring of Altus Press here at Zachary Mule. Matt talks about how he became interested in the pulps, what are some of his favorite pulp series, what goes into compiling a new collection of stories...just all kinds of good stuff.
Garyn Roberts, who was this year's recipient of the Munsey Award at PulpFest, has written a lovely tribute to all those people who have trudged the pulp path with him over the years. It can be found at the home page at pulpfest.com.
The PulpFest committee has begun to get ready to update the website to get ready for next year's event. Eventually all of the information on the 2013 event will be moved to a blogroll.
Patti Abbott's blog pattinase always has good topics on books, television, movies and writing. Always. Today her topic is "Series I Want to Watch Again and Ones I Do Not. As for me, I think I'd want to see Helen Mirren's PRIME SUSPECT again. I don't want to see again is HOMELAND. I've gone through two years of it and I think it's highly overrated.
WHAT I'M READING NOW: GEORGIANA, DUCHESS OF DEVONSHIRE, by Amanda Foreman. I've been on a biography binge lately. I grabbed this one yesterday as I was running out the door to go to jury duty. Needed something to read in that room, you know. And I haven't been able to put it down.
WHAT'S ON TV: LAW & ORDER UK, on BBC America. But then I started on the blog and now it's just background noise.
PET OF THE WEEK: I originally met Katrina when she was at the Harbor Shelter in San Pedro. A 6 year old German Shepherd, she was severly underweight and had serious skin problems. I took photos of her then and posted them on Facebook.
Katrina was eventually rescued by German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County, and look at her now! It is amazing how these dogs can blossom once they get out of a shelter.
Katrina is now called Cassandra and according to her page on their web site, she is doing well. They are still evaluating her, but you can sponsor her if you like and help pay for her medical bills. If you are interested in adopting her, go to their website and fill out an application. If you live out of the area, I'm not sure what their policy is on that, so please check with them.
