A Random Robot (and Holly Black!)

Only one person chose a “random robot” commission. The robot builders in my imagination seem to like designing robots with stumpy little legs. This poor guy has to ride on another robot and point where he wants to go:

Anyway...

Last night my friend Bill convinced me to come out of hiding and ride with him to the Baltimore County Library to see Holly Black. It was well worth it. Not only was it a pleasure to listen to her speak about vampires and writing, but I learned about The White Cat, a wild fairytale that had somehow avoided my notice until now.

And I picked up a copy of her new book, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown.

You have never heard of the White Cat? Oh it's the best!!! (Holly Black rocks too)

Also, for loving robots so much, it's pretty sad that they're verboten from posting on your blog. Imagine them typing out their comments, and then getting to the security check that says "please prove you are not a robot"... tears!

The Castle of Cats by Eric A. Kimmel is an excellent retelling of The White Cat, in case you're interested.

There are several things missing from the sidebar. It's a work in progress!
