Well, I’ve already admitted that my pencilled-in plan to get my essay collection A Long Year’s Dreaming: Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror in 2020 finished in December was a little unrealistic. Recent events — amongst them a technical problem involving my Kindle, and the fact that this time of year is peak period for items getting lost in the post — have conspired to rub that in my face.
I’ve still been going forward full tilt, however. Any delay offers an opportunity to squeeze in a little more writing: in particular, I’ve found myself expanding the book’s anime content.
The cover design’s coming along pretty well, too. I hope to have something to show for it before long.
