Stylesheet Fixes

The stylesheets on the front page of were not loading correctly except in the browser I used to log in to WordPress. For some reason, the WP Super Cache plugin was serving the index page with http stylesheet links even though https is used throughout the site template, yielding a mixed-content error. I disabled a few caching features and it seems to be resolved.

Sci-Fi Mini Crossword

Crosshare is a nifty site for hosting (and playing) user-constructed crosswords. You can embed puzzles on other sites, like this mini crossword I made for PORTRAITS #2. (Be forewarned: it contains some very esoteric science fiction clues.)

The February 2023 issue of my illustrated haiku review fanzine PORTRAITS is out (in the mail and online for patrons; the posts go public for everyone next week). This issue has two more haiku than the first issue. The print edition is now double-sided, so the portraits are printed at a slightly larger scale. Last but not least, it includes a crossword!

Here’s a video sneak preview:

New in the Queue – February 10

My to-be-read pile has grown to fill a whole bookshelf. I’m okay with this! I like discovering interesting things that’ve been steeping in the stacks. But sometimes I do forget what’s in the queue. To keep these unread books on my radar, I’m going to write a few “previews” noting why or how I picked them up.

I’ll start with the most recent additions and work back from there until I don’t.
