Home Again


In the 1950s my mother’s parents established a vacation spot for the family in upper New York state, near the St. Lawrence Seaway, and we all spent lots of time there in subsequent summers. I haven’t been up there in twelve years, but I’m just back from a Klein family gathering there with my mom, my brothers and their families, my mother’s sister, her children and their families. It was a fun time, even though the weather didn’t cooperate much, with only one dry sunny day. We did some fishing, boating, swimming, lots of talking and eating, played games, laughed a lot, and had a fine time. Above is my nephew Charlie with his first fish, a tiny Perch that he will no doubt remember forever as much larger than it appears.

Got back yesterday to find a nice batch of print orders, largely due to a mention on Neil Gaiman’s blog last Friday. Thanks, Neil! Thanks to all of you who ordered, too. They were shipped out this morning.

In my mailbag was a link to a new website for writer Kurt Busiek, beautifully and impressively designed by Comicraft’s John Roshell. I’ll be adding his blog to my links column shortly.

Comicon International in San Diego is coming up fast. I’ll be there from Thursday afternoon through Sunday, July 23-26, but not sitting anywhere in particular, just roaming around. Stop me and say hi if you’re going and you see me there. I’ll be blogging the con again this year.

That’s all I can think of for now. Back to work!
