Spring is in the Air

The weather is turning warmer; the trees are starting to bud; the wind is beginning to blow and bringing lots of dust with it.  I just want to go outside and enjoy with weather.  And a good book, of course.

Unfortunately, it being the time of spring that it is, or rather the point in the semester it is, I'm buried under a mountain of exams, approximately 150 of them, give or take a few.  So I'm not going to be able to read, write, or blog much.  At least not until the end of the week.  To tide you over, head over to Amazing Stories (TM) and check out my review of Under the Ember Star by Charles Gramlich.  If you like Leigh Brackett, this book should appeal to you.

Spring Break starts at the end of the week, and I intend to do some catching up then.  Until then, back to grading.


  1. I gave a test yesterday. give another on friday, get the second papers in my writing class Thursday, and have a quiz also this week. I feel your pain. I wonder why we teachers do this to ourselves sometimes?

    Thanks much for the "Ember Star" review. I'm very glad you liked it.

    1. You're quite welcome, Charles.

      There are days when I wonder why I do this to myself.
