And Westmark too.

'Chronicles of Prydain’ author Lloyd Alexander dead at 83

Lloyd Alexander's official website [not yet updated with the news]

His works shaped my childhood. He knew how to write pathos in a way that was accessible to kids and adults alike; how to create flawed, sympathetic heroes and lovable side characters (here's looking at you, Gurgi and Fflewddur Fflam). (He knew how to write great fantasy about cats, too.)

Sometimes, in later years, I felt his plots and characters fell into patterns--but there was always something to redeem each story.

Farewell, Lloyd Alexander.

ehh, forgot to delete the tea post from my journal. I fail at LJ, so I have to make practice posts. Thanks for the well-wishes though! How've you been doing?

Hey there, belatedly!

Been pretty busy with work, trying to adjust to the branch head lifestyle... >_>; Management = not my strong suit. But I'm dealing with it!

I finally read the Naono Bohra scanlation you got your icon from--fun read! She's an endearingly wacky mangaka.

Meanwhile, you've been missing out on a sweltering couple of weeks here. I'm sure you're heartbroken to hear it! I didn't make it to yesterday evening's Meetup... too tired, too hot, and I had work the day after. I hope Jeff got some sort of turnout!

Well, laters! Have some pavlova on my behalf. ;-)

Eh, sorry to hear that work is tough. But at least it getting easier.

I've joined the LJ Naono community, and found some that I didn't have before. Did you see the zombie one? I can't believe she went there O.o

I caved and bought a copy of Yoshinaga's Ichigenme, even though prices here are terrible. It's one of my top 5 yaoi EVAR, so I had too. So worth it :)

While you have heat, I have mild temp and gentle rain :P I hope there was some turnout for the meetup too. I don't want it to die!
