I’ve been working on the wackier of my CowParade proposals all day. I don’t know what the rules are on displaying the designs before the results have been announced, so I won’t. But I can say that I need to go away and make ‘Welcome to Cow Town’ sign in Illustrator now.

As promised earlier today, old editions of Cycling on the Pavement have moved to the Archive. I’ve also put The Eliza Effect there and will be stocking it up with other short stories over time. The index page is very minimalist at the moment, but that’ll change as well. Monthly subscriptions are available right now. 6 Monthly and Annual ones should be up tomorrow.
