Items received

Below is a photo of the items received this month. I’m sure you can see the electronic files floating around in this photo… they’re the 1’s and 0’s floating down the picture Matrix-style.

Text Publishing sent a copy of Skin by Ilka Tampke; it’s currently doing the rounds of my Literary Fantasy assignment group at university so it’s not in the photo but my review is here. And the cover is very pretty.

It was 11am when I took this photo in the light from the windows and sliding glass door. It is a dark day indeed, to commemorate Leonard Nimoy’s death. Not that I’m sad that an icon predating my birth, whom I loved all my life, has passed on.
