    1. I’m happy to hear that, Lorinda. BTW, I’m enjoying The Blessing of Krozem, and I was totally impressed with the excerpt you posted from MWFB #8 on your blog. Even with all the linguistic details, it was funny and interesting. Can’t wait for that one to be published!

      1. I’m happy you’re enjoying B of K – it could use more reviews! And I’m glad you liked the excerpt. I solicited the opinions of some of my conlanger friends over on my Facebook group, and it seems that “regular” readers liked the linguistic material better than the conlangers did! So I think I’ll leave it in. There is a lot more of that sort of thing in the book, of course, because a detailed study of how humans might learn to communicate with aliens in a first contact was the reason I started MWFB in the first place. I did some of that, as you will remember, in The Termite Queen, but I take it much farther in MWFB. (Unfortunately, publication of Rare Birds is not imminent!)

    1. Thanks for the good wishes, Chuck. It’s a bit of a risk publishing stories related to novels not everyone (ha ha) has read. And yes, HPL is getting a lot of attention now, way more than during his lifetime. Posthumous success is better than none at all, I guess. Thanks again.
