... that five links make a post.

1) jimhines recently put up a very timely post about introversion and the cost of social exposure. As somebody who is both an X-treme Introvert and pathologically shy (which I doubt comes as a surprise to anybody who's met me), I find it comforting to know that the Internet can be daunting even to people who--like Jim Hines--stick their neck out on a regular basis.

2) Recommended listening: NPR hosts a streaming version of Shearwater's new album, The Golden Archipelago. "Shearwater is fearless in its seriousness and often awe-inspiring loveliness: As The Golden Archipelago finds him examining humanity's complex relationships with nature, Meiburg's whispers can hit like screams, and when he screams, the effect is so clean and graceful, it's strangely calming." seajules, though it occurs to me that I have no idea whatsoever of your taste in music, this seems like music for you nonetheless--the sound of a storm-swept sea.

3) I will be at ConDor at the end of the month. I will even be on panels. Come one! Come all! Start a pool on how often my brain will lock up!

4) Last bit of "Armature of Flight" news: if you're interested in reading what I have to say about the story, there's an interview up at Fantasy Magazine.

5) And finally, my poem "Alexander von Humboldt Visits the Moon" has been nominated for a Rhysling Award. Let it never be said I don't know how to bury the lede, but too much good news all on top of each other just leaves me feeling... awkward.
