The perfect winter vacation. Jenn and I came up to Steamboat Springs to get married in a beautiful chalet joined by family. We all spent a few days there having a good time and relaxing, enjoying the many feet of snow on the ground and just-above freezing temperatures for the week. Clear skies and warm sun made it feel like late spring. Later in the week we spent a couple days skiing including several inches of fresh powder. I got in some first tracks on top of the mountain and Jenn had a great day in a lesson. Now we’re just enjoying the rest of the week, like any good vacation. And this isn’t even the honeymoon. 🙂

I recently came into possession of a Kindle, and I’ve rather been enjoying it. Being a fan of H.P. Lovecraft, the first purchase I made was a nice collection of his writing including a copy of the Lovecraft wiki page. This is the book if you’re so inclined. I’ve been enjoying reading these stories again, collected in this volume in chronological order which is a fantastic way to read them meshed with the Kindle’s “next/previous” simple reading methodology.
One nice thing about this collection is a handy reference of the wiki, which includes references to many of Lovecraft’s contemporaries and influences. I’ve also been able to get many of these books on my Kindle so far, including such tales as The King in Yellow and several Dunsany, Machen and Blackwood books.
So here I sit, usually over a bowl of soup for lunch, thumbing through some of the world’s best horror. A Kindle full of horror. Dig in!
