Hope to see you all there.
I haven't posted since December 31st because I've been working on the Best Horror #3, which is due this week. I still have too much to read, re-read, skim. I've made some choices and have more to make. Once I do, I'll be posting the TOC here.

In the meantime, a mind-meld about books people are looking forward to in 2011 can be found here . As you can see, many are hoping to catch up with 2010 or older titles. For me this isn't an option. I've got to start reading for 2011 as soon as I finish up 2010.

I'm pleased to say that Terri and my anthology Teeth has sold to a few foreign publishers (can't say more until the deals are done) and that has sold to Mondadori in Italy.

Its splendid interiors are host to a diverse number of cultural programs, including readings, art shows, lectures and symposiums. We are glad to host this evening of some of America’s finest fantasy authors in homage to an unclassifiable master of the weird, H. P. Lovecraft. We hope you can join us!
We arrived at his room on the 3rd floor and he wasn't there--which was pretty scary, until we found out that he's been moved down to orthopedics, which means he's no longer being monitored specially for his heart.

He was sleeping when we arrived on the second floor and was told he hadn't eaten breakfast. He slept a lot today but I think that's a good thing, considering how active and relatively incoherent he was yesterday. When he was awake he spoke more clearly. He doesn't have the heard leads on his chest any more so we got him untied from the bed, which means he could drink  by himself, wipe his own face with a wet washcloth, and fold his arms across his stomach which is how he prefers to nap.  He had Occuptational therapy once and Physical therapy twice. He sat up on his bed and was able to keep upright by himself. Progress indeed.

Not as grumpy, although he was frustrated when we didn't comprehend his questions...we think he was asking about the mechanic for the second car (the battery died last week and had to be repaired. I'm sure he knows exactly what he's trying to make sure of but we can only get the bits and pieces of what he wants to check on.

He didn't eat much today and we had to leave before his dinner arrived because it was already dark (6:15) and my mom doesn't like driving in the dark. Hopefully he ate more at that meal.

I asked my mom if she was ok with me leaving Wednesday and she says she is. We were hoping to meet with caseworker today to discuss rehab options (we don't know how long my dad will remain in the hospital) but she didn't show up. We'll make sure we get hold of her tomorrow.

In other news (I've  been able to read on and off all day, every day and at night am reading too). I finished going over the galleys of both Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror and Tails of Wonder and Imagination. And continue to read and reread for The Best Horror of the Year, volume two. I've read two anthologies on my e-reader and I believe I can read some more tomorrow although the battery is low and will likely run down in the middle of the day. (good to learn how long it actually lasts without recharging--my playstation charger didn't arrive before I left for Florida).
