Anyway, here is a bloggy overview of the past 12 months:
My most exciting project: The Free Science Fiction with Biology directory.
It's currently up to 220 free SF stories and I have at least a few dozen more to add when the dust from holidays has settled. And more free fiction appears online every week, so it's a project that thankfully never will be complete. Current entries span the entire 20th century, and include fiction originally published in Asimov's, Analog, Interzone, Fantasy & Science Fiction, the journal Nature, and many other fine publications. More than 40 of the entries you can listen to as an audiobook or podcast, which is excellent for listening to on your favorite MP3 player while jogging or commuting or cooking dinner or whatever else you might be doing.

Also, special thanks to Cheryl Morgan who included my name here, making me smile during a very stressful and unhappy time.
