Fantastical Friday: G & T, Killer Bees, and American Gothic

Okay, boys and girls, pour yourselves a big old G & T and let’s celebrate.  It’s FRIDAY!!!!!!

By now you’re all fairly familiar with my apocalyptic obsession.  But one should never go boldly into the apocalypse without a little humor.

See.  It’s not so bad.  The news anchors will buy it first giving us all plenty of time to escape the aliens.  Or zombies.  Or killer bees.  Or whatever.

But don’t worry.  The apocalypse won’t start today.  We’ve got until December 2012.  So, before you rush out to stock up on Twinkies and Gatorade, check out Morgan’s interview on Reality Skimming.  That’s right, Morgan finally got her chance to do something besides dust vamps and slay demons.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, I’ve been reading some good stuff lately.  First off, I finished Colleen Gleason’s The Shop of Shades and Secrets.  My understanding is that this series of hers is entirely indie.  Which is totally cool as she’s a big name in the trad pubbed world.  I guess you could consider the novel a modern American Gothic.  It’s fun.  It’s spooky.  It’s romantic.

I also re-read PJ Jones’s Romance Novel.  What can I say?  I was in hospital and I needed something to cheer me up.  This certainly did the trick.  It’s a hilarious parody of Twilight (among other things).  It’s raunchy.  It’s naughty.  It’s laugh-out-loud funny.

Well, folks, that’s all she wrote.  Until tomorrow when the Supernatural rises again …
