From today's photo ride: In the last month I've gotten three unsolicited requests to use pictures of mine for quasi-commercial purposes: the internal newsletter of the company that made this train , a book about wild dogs in Zimbabwe, and an album sleeve for a small record label in Montreal. I said "yes so long as you credit me and mention my web site" to 'em all. I suppose I could just Creative-Commons-license all my shots, but while I don't intend to make money off my pictures, there's something to retaining veto power. Also, I have finally compiled all my favourites among the shots I've Flickrd into one set . Stare and enjoy.

Undead ringer

Link du jour: one of my oldest friends, who's now some ridiculously accomplished researcher at some exceedingly prestigious university, writes about the epidemiology of zombies . Oh, and the flu. Meanwhile, the arrival of contracts (by email, unsigned, and with my name misspelled, but still) I think means I can finally semi-officially announce that later this year I will be scripting a circa-175-page black-and-white graphic novel titled The Executor for Vertigo Comics for publication hopefully in 2008. (Wow, that was quite a sentence.) It's a present-day thriller set in a small town in upstate New York.
