I am going to take a few weeks off from this blog to finish up my Crater manuscript. It’s been a fairly productive summer thus far, but I need to take advantage of my remaining free time before the new school year starts. I still need to look at a few archival collections which involves a little traveling and I still have large sections to write. In short, I really need to get off my ass and finish. Those of you who are relatively new to this blog may want to browse the archives. You can still comment on posts and I may even respond. See you in a few weeks.
