Yawning Sunday

We are forecast to have an unprecedented three days in a row with no rain, starting tomorrow. This would be nice, because I'm getting tired of the dark clouds rolling in whenever I propose to go anywhere. They've been rolling in and out all evening, most dramatic and Maxfield Parrish and like my icon in the sunset, but the rain seems to have got itself over with earlier in the day. Touch wood, of course.

Donald Thomas is a prolific writer of Holmes pastiche. Alas, he really is deadly dull. Sherlock Holmes and the King's Evil should have been fun, even though I was unaware that the first story was riffing off of Wilde's Lord Arthur Savile's Crime. But no. Too many notes, Herr Thomas: or rather, too much information about making ink from oak gall and the like. Shall go read Gaiman instead.
