How to Make Entrails

Mary Robinette Kowal shows you how. Because haven’t you always wanted to know?

There’s another way to make them, but it requires a willing partner plus nine months, and then there’s all this other stuff around the entrails called a “baby.” And, well. They don’t let you use those entrails. Because apparently the baby needs them. Stupid baby. Mary’s way is a heck of a lot easier.

Off to Ohioana

I’m traveling today for the Ohioana Book Festival, so I suspect I’ll be away from the computer for much of the day. I’ll do the Twitter thing, etc, if you can’t live without me.

If you’re in the Columbus, OH area, remember also that I’m doing a reading/Q&A today, at the Dublin Branch Library in Dublin at 2pm. Take a late lunch and swing on by. It’ll be fun.

And here’s my entire Ohioana schedule, should you decide to drop by the festival on Saturday, which you should, because it’s free, and there’s nothing better than free.

Today’s Unintentionally Terrifying Singer
