I think I’ve mentioned that it’s been a strange year for yours truly.
The strangeness has manifested itself in many good and many bad ways. Happily, this past week, the strangeness has been a very good, very fun thing.
Not all of the strangeness is fit for disclosure in blog-form.
Some of it is, though.
From Texas, the great Daniel Kalder sent signed copies of his excellent books Lost Cosmonaut and Strange Telescopes. He also sent the Polish-language version of Lost Cosmonaut, which looks really cool, although I can’t read a word of it:
D.K. was also kind enough to send several amazing photographs from his personal collection (© Daniel Kalder). Please don’t redistribute in any fashion.
Here’s a few from Kalmykia, the strangest of estranged Russian lands, IMHO.
Fuck All You Motherfuckers
Another nice bit of mail showed up in the form of this book:
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Brian Clark, the author, mentions yours truly in the “thank you” section, along with a diverse group of talented folks:
Skiba, Boyd, Emily, Vadge, Trace, Stephanie, Ruth, Iced Borscht and Lisa
Beautiful this strange world of ours, nyet?
Thanks to Daniel and Brian for adding to the past week’s excellence quotient.
