The Week in Entertainment
DVD: Some Scarecrow and Mrs. King from the last season. Show is very dated (Cold War!) but holds up well, thanks to the leads, who are very appealing.
Read: Fuji-San, a collection of short stories by Randy Taguchi - snapshots focusing on Mount Fuji. I hated the third one, but the first two are extraordinary and though I don't like the narrator of the fourth one, the story is lovely. I bought David J Schwartz's , Gooseberry Bluff Community College of Magic: The Thirteenth Rib thanks to The Big Idea over at Whatever... anyway, it's a ebook serial. For some reason I thought it was complete (I don't know why, nothing at Whatever says so) and it's not, so ... can't wait for the next episode. (Despite the title, it's not really about a college of magic, it's a police novel set at a college of magic in a fascinating alternate reality.) Also, a short story (excised from the remarkable Land of Milk and Money back when it was called Dear Dairy) called "The Voyage to Brazil" (part one and part two).
