Thursday so far

I turned the computer off at 11:00 p.m., after downloading The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft.  I got tired around 1:00 a.m., but stayed up to finish a story.  I went to bed at 1:30 a.m., and I think I fell asleep pretty quickly.  I woke up about a quarter to ten, so that wasn't bad.

I could see what some of the reviewers of H.P. Lovecraft's stories said about him being a racist.  There's no doubt he was.  I thought the stories were fairly comparable to Albert Payson Terhune's books, which were written in the 1910s and 1920s, in the racism on display.

Later: I went to the Amish market.  They had the sugar-free apple pie today.

I got J.L. Merrow's latest Plumber's Mate book, Blow Down.  It immediately started referring to the events of book three, Heat Trap, which I must have read as soon as I got it, because the details were very vague in my mind.  I reread Heat Trap.  I listened to the president's town hall.  I started reading Blow Down.

I got a newsletter-type e-mail from Brent Hartinger saying that Grand and Humble was free for a limited time.  I'm not sure if I've read that one.  I posted about it on the Gay Book forum, so I really hope it has at least one gay character.  I have the feeling Brent would have posted about it himself if it did, so I may need to delete that post.
