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:


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.
