Just some weird confluences to report:
1) There’s a cool article about steampunk in Time magazine, which quotes me profusely.
2) The December 4 Word of the Day at Merriam-Webster is “Leviathan.” I haz proof.
3) Tomorrow morning, Children’s Literature Ambassador John Scska will be on CBS’s The Early Show to talk about good books. I hear that he’ll be mentioning Leviathan. Update: Turns out he didn’t! But he did recommend lots of other great books, including Candle Man, Book One: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance by Glen Dakin, Going Bovine by Libba Bray, and Stitches: A Memoir by David Small.
That is all of the weirdness.
Oh, and Justine and I are in the Korean Air lounge at JFK airport, which is also the Aeroflot and Turkish Air lounge. Istanbul is a mere 11-hour fight away!
