Hi all. Sorry for the silence. It's been a crazy couple of weeks (busted pipe in my house, a zigzagging trench jackhammered into our floor, having to move out for three days, having to move all our furniture so we can get new floors, waiting for the new floors which have still not materialized, also my license plate was stolen, also also the city is putting in new sidewalks so my house is surrounded by a moat of mud).
There will be a January story. I expect to finish it this weekend. It just might go up on the last day of the month.
In the meantime, enjoy this great short film, The New Year, by Benjamin DeHart, based on my story "Happy Old Year," featuring my favorite trickster god/chaos witch/mischief maker Elsie:
