This is the blog of Sarah Monette/Katherine Addison, a professional writer of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. Sarah Monette is my real name; Katherine Addison is a pen name, intended to be transparent.

If you've found me here, odds are pretty good you're looking for something to read, so the following is--to the best of my knowledge--a complete list of everything I've written that's available online:

Have I mentioned I hate job-hunting?

There's nothing that makes you feel quite so much like a waste of carbon as getting turned down for a library shelver position. I didn't even make the interview.

The same applies to the house centipede lurking along the ceiling in the bedroom. Also to the doctor's appointment I have this afternoon. (Which is unrelated to the con crud. Checkup, Annual: see above re: Boring Health Problems.)

Therefore, if you have something good or interesting or fun you want to tell me about (this includes general burbling about Fourth Street, if a person felt like it), the comments to this post would be a superlatively appropriate place.

And I found something interesting on my own even! A nifty article about the intelligence of octopuses, via jaylake.

Also, dd_b's snapshots of Fourth Street.

writing: bone key
I went to bed last night with a headache, and it was still there when I woke up. It has, in fact, persisted all day--although I think it's easing off some--meaning that today has been (a.) less productive and (b.) less pleasant than I had hoped.

However, comma, my general state of decrepitude and despond has been alleviated by two things:

1. The most fabulous fidelioscabinet sent me porcupine quill hairsticks, which are both the platonic ideal of awesome and also useful.

2. The Bone Key is a finalist for the first annual Shirley Jackson Awards. I am pleased about this not merely for the obvious reasons, but also because I think it's incredibly cool that Shirley Jackson is being memorialized in this way. The Haunting of Hill House is one of the most elegantly terrifying books I have ever read.

If you have good things you would like to share, I'd love to hear about them.
