Robin McKinley has a new blog, has just been made a SFWA Grand Master, and is living in Scotland with a German wirehaired pointer named Genghis. She also has a giant manuscript which will hopefully come out sometime soon.
All these things make me happy, although I’m very sorry to learn that her “hellhounds” all died during the Coof Years. Bah.
Also, the downside of living in some small town in eastern Scotland is that her town doesn’t do snowplows. Ugh.
