Oh good, now you will have more time to...answer interview questions and things like that. (insert evil laugh)
And write novels :-)
Hey, Margo, Dan Braum, another Clarion chum from a different Clarion, is attending South this year. Say hi if you're in the neighborhood.BTW, Stephen Woodworth has a my space thingie. His new novel, From Black Rooms, comes out on Oct 31.
A URL would help, no?http://www.myspace.com/woodworthsworldofwondersI forgot that Tom sold to Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine--the mystery mag here in the states!Joe is a professor in Joplin, MO.Sarah has an MFA and started selling a number of things.Andrea came out with her novel, Mindscape! (which we critted the early sections of)
As Justine's comments are closed, may I add that only T.S. Eliot really gets away with 'crepuscular'. And the only reason latinate leftover words like 'pulchritudinous' have survived is because people read them in books, AND because they are not spoken very often (otherwise the syllables would get worn down and run together with use). So the power lies with you writers - use it or lose it, guys!!

I write fiction. My latest novel is Sea Hearts, published by Allen & Unwin in Australia—this novel is published as The Brides of Rollrock Island by David Fickling Books and Jonathan Cape in the UK, and by Knopf in the US, and as Seeherzen from Rowohlt in Germany. I've also written Tender Morsels and five short story collections: White Time, Black Juice, Red Spikes, Yellowcake and Cracklescape.
