What I’m ... (March 21, 2013)

Superheroes  -- A collection of superhero short stories, but not your usual “kapow.” Subtle, nuanced, and from interesting POVs and characters. Features work by Peter S. Beagle (The Last Unicorn) and Hugo winner James Patrick Kelly.
Amoskeag Journal proofs – Southern New Hampshire University’s venerable (thirty years old next month) literature journal is due out on paper, Kindle, and Nook round about April 19. It features contest winners, National Endowment of the Arts favorites, and Peabody nominees, to name a few, and I get to catch the typos.

Listening to:
The New York Times’ Book Review podcast  -- Voices and journalists made for print interview authors, talk about trends, and tell you what’s going to be on the cover of the New York Times Book Review.  It’s a great way to learn about new authors without taking your hands off the wheel.
Same Trailer, Different Park by Kacey Musgraves – This is who I hoped Taylor Swift would become in her twenties.  Life issues, poverty, sadness, and sweetness … almost real country music.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series  on the Cartoon Network   -- What the movie should have been. Captures the cosmic feel of the Green Lantern and his Corp.  Number three in my top three of DC Nation shows that should not have been canceled (Batman: Brave and the Bold, Young Justice and …)
Californication, Season One – In another universe, I am someone more like Hank Moody. I’m just glad it’s not this one.

Chocolate stout from Milly’s Tavern.
Jameson’s Irish Whiskey leftover from St. Patrick’s Day.
