What I'm reading

I'm working my way through "Think Like a Dinosaur and Other Stories" by James Patrick Kelly. I have to admit I'd never heard of Mr. Kelly until this past summer when I attended my first (hopefully not last) WorldCon. I highly recommend this collection. I'm reading it from the POV of a novice writer trying to learn from one of the best.

I'm also plugging away on a new short story. This is my third attempt at using an idea I came up with several weeks ago. The first two attempts were fantasy-based and neither one ended up working for me. This attempt is more sci-fi. I hope I have finally found a plot and characters that gel with the original idea.
