I have finally tied all the loose ends up on proposals and contracts, and handed in my article on the three amazing pigeons (dodo, passenger, and feral street) to Living Bird.

But I have plenty on tap here– guns and art, sure, and quotes, but most importantly, all manner of book reviews and recommendations, starting with Paula Young Lee’s unique, funny, true, and addictively quotable Deer Hunting in Paris.
