Monday Mutterings, week 7 of 20

Week seven of the Twenty Weeks of Buzz finds a new puzzle, deciphering a burst of free verse!  And, if you send in your answers by the 14th you’ll be entered for next week’s drawing of a “Venomous Death” mini-broadside OR a genuine LRK t-shirt.  Either will look fabulous on your wall.


Something I’m really looking forward to this week is putting the final touches on the new broadside, “The Birth of a Green Man.”  The story itself ties in with The God of the Hive (oh, I am such a clever girl) and is going to look amazing.  I got the art from Jean Lukens last week, and it’s with the print shop now—she and I are going in to help decide on the final placement of text and art, and with luck it’ll be printed and ready to sign by the end of the week.  I’ll post an image of it when we have it, and let you know where and when you can get one.


And at the end of the week—Saturday, to be precise—I get to have a conversation with the great Jedediah Barry about SF in SF: Science Fiction in San Francisco.  Come join us!


I’ll have more to say about the Mary Russell Coloring Book project on Thursday, but meanwhile, I just have to show you one of the submissions to the Beekeeper’s Gallery page (to see the others, and learn how to submit one of your own, go here.)

Have fun!

    This puzzle is a doozy. Now…where did I put that Enigma Machine?

    OH! I recognize the picture from If anyone hasn’t been over there and done a search with the keywords Mary Russell, I suggest you do it ASAP.

    aside to Laurie: Remember the girl who left the “hater” review of BEEK on YouTube and you insisted we link it to your channel? Well, she has a piece posted you should find amusing. I believe her screen name is jaruna.

    Here’s the url, if you’re interested…
