I'm on the west coast. Soothing salt spray, scent of brine and thunder grumbling in the background. I love Florida in August...as long as there are NO hurricanes. Went to the Edison Museum for book research. Fascinating stuff, like how he was nearly deaf and he tapped out his marriage proposal to his second wife via Morse code, which he taught to her, BUT neglected to teach her the code for "no."
Dorchester did a second printing of The Cobra & the Concubine! YAY!
