I'm pleased to report that the trick-or-treaters liked the PlayDoh that I was worried about giving out. Sadly, we got less than a dozen spooky visitors. So we're just going to have to find some way to use the remains of the three bags of candy that we bought.
I just finished reading Idlewild, by Nick Sagan. (Yes, Nick is Carl's son.) Idlewild was delightfully appropriate for the season, and the best substitute for not having a new Gaiman book to read. It was tightly crafted dark fantasy, and I enjoyed how Sagan communicated a deep and emotional world with economical word use. I look forward to reading more of his work.
