Happy Solstice, everyone! Last year, a dark horse of a book made it on my Best of 2018 list. Glory's Teeth was a wonderful, odd bit of urban fantasy in the vein I like most: strange gods with feelings and existential crises of their own. I found it because a random tweet from the author...

About a year and a half ago, I was chatting with a friend. This person had been mostly supportive of my writing in the past.
