1,500 Left to Go

Shhh! Don’t wake Byron the Quokka. He’s worked hard, trying to gin up comments for the comment contest, and now he needs his beauty sleep. He usually dreams of bicycles.

On our way to 75,000 comments, we now have 73,500. Not too many months ago, before the Oligarchy decided my site’s traffic needs to be suppressed, we’d’ve knocked off another 1,500 comments in a week or two. Now, I don’t know.

The prize for posting Comment No. 75,000 will be either an autographed copy of my new book, The Wind from Heaven (it’s just about ready for publication), or else one of those cool T-shirts that says “If they have to kill us, they’ve lost. –Lee Duigon”–your choice.

We had the gold mask of Tutankhamen for a while, but the quokkas didn’t like it and anyway the Cairo Museum wanted it back…

  1. I’m doing the best I can, but with this computer program change every few days, all that is going on in my life right now, it is not easy. I hope some of the newer readers will chime in more, but I know everybody is likely a bit stressed out these days. I can’t seem to get anything much going with facebook.

  2. And I keep running on a hamster wheel this week, barely able to keep up with my emails.

    1. I hate to admit this, but I sometimes get dizzy watching them. I like to watch hamsters eating, though.

      And in about 15 minutes I’m going to give up on my own hamster wheel and call computering quits for the day. I just got a new Lindsey Davis mystery yesterday (the mysteries set in ancient Rome), so I’m going to curl up on the couch and fall asleep over it — I mean start reading it.

    2. I’m reading the latest in her Flavia Albia series — the adopted daughter whom Falco once picked up (rescued, actually) when she was a feral waif in Britannia. Flavia is grown up now and has taken over her father’s informer business. I was afraid the series would turn into one of those feminist screeds when Flavia became the protagonist, but so far the books have avoided that. Flavia is strong and gutsy, but not one of those superwomen that you deplore. Have you been reading the new series?

  3. We are awaiting your newest Bell Mountain book, and happy to read that it’s almost finished! Now we’ll start flipping a coin to see who gets to read it first!
