In other news, I'm finishing up a last polish on the Firefly novel, after which I'll send it to my agent, and, presumably, some time after that I'll figure out how to publish it as fanfic. Those who know, hang on to your information for a little while.
The next Vlad novel, Jhegaala, is still in chapter two, but I'm getting some fun ideas for it; it's sort of forming in my head as I work on other things, which I like. Partly as inspiration for it, but mostly just for fun, I'm re-reading Raymond Chandler. Damn, he's good.
