FedExFurniture.com. Build furniture (couch, table, chairs, bed, desk) on the cheap using FedEx boxes. FedEx apparently provides these things for free, on request. Sounds like a corporate policy that might soon be revised.

In some writerly news, I learned this weekend that issue 2 of Apex Digest, containing my flash story "Orders," is now out. Also, that my "The Wizard Gets A Haircut" will be out in the Fall issue of Abyss & Apex (October). Lovely, lovely.

Finally I found it in the back, listed under "Parting Shots." Ok, so it's the last thing in there. Good strong placement. But the lack of complete TOC credit seems odd to me.

Reading: Back issues of Realms of Fantasy.
