 Accomplishments for the weekend: 1. I have an executor for my literary estate! Lambda Literary and I made it official; they'll own the copyright and publishing rights to my ouevre when I shuffle off this mortal coil and all. 2. Second Patreon post for the month is away! This month, the recommendation lists are: sfnal works featuring older women as protagonists and fun music to work to. The nonprofit is the NAACP, out there fighting the good fight against racism and for social justice  for decades. https://www.patreon.com/CLundoff 

On a related note, if you are an author with published books and stories, make a will and designate someone or preferably, an institution likely to outlive you to handle things when you're gone. I have a current archive of my work at the University of Minnesota Tretter Collection, as well as donating to several other libraries, which takes care of what's out right now, but not what happens down the road. Some folks designate friends or the literary agencies they work with, for example. Have faith that someone will want to read your work down the road apiece and do some planning. 

Nook replacement?

I've somehow damaged the screen of my Nook Simpletouch. It's not too bad at present, just a blotch a couple of letters wide and high near the bottom of the page, but it's a bit annoying and I'm worried it might get worse. It's not urgent, but I think I'll replace it if I can find a cheap substitute - but it must be an e-ink based ebook reader, not anything with an LCD screen, the power life is too limited on anything like that.

I get the impression that this technology has to a large extent been sidelined by cheap android tablets etc., but if possible I'd like something a bit faster than the Nook and easier to organize - you can't organize books into "shelves" from the computer with Nooks - and Calibre compatible.

Any suggestions?

Too hot

Had a lymph drainage massage today. Made me overwhelmingly sleepy.

In light of the recent additions to the Points series, I now find the Marlowe sections of The Armor of Light much more Astreianty than before. Not exactly a sketch for Eslingen, but a less positive version of same.
