The title pretty much says it all. World Cup 2010 has been sucking up just about every waking hour here at Chez Korolenko, as I'm working midnights at the "day" job this month, and sleeping in shifts between matches. Our regularly scheduled program will resume shortly after Brazil wins this thing on July 11.
In the meantime, I managed to redraft a short story called "The Miracle of Birth," which is a nasty little tale of obsession and isolation. I have also reviewed the video of "A Requiem for the Unnamed," from the June 20th reading in Rochester, and I've decided to hold off on posting it here for the moment. There are very cool things in the works for both of these stories, and when you see the end results, I'm certain you will agree that the wait was worth it.
So, for now, go forth. See you soon.
