Uh Oh

Word to the wise - Don't get up at dawn's crack, tired and cranky, sit down at your computer (without desperately needed coffee) and edit your web site's content. One slip of the finger may lead you, as it has so many others, to delete entire years of content. Thankfully, my stories are safe in the archives. Only most of the original blog introductions are gone. A few remain and those I am posting for you anew, revisiting some old favorites. Remember, I maintain this blog, and publish these stories, to provide a means of communicating with you. My motivation is stimulated by your feedback. Keep that in mind before you read a story and leave without posting a comment. For now, I do not moderate comments and so far have appreciated every single one I have received.

Thanks for reading...


  1. Zander,

    I've done that! It does suck, but hopefully you have backup, and restore over time. One good thing? You reposted La belle Mort, my favorite story. Thank you.


  2. Just wanted to say that I hope you're feeling better today. It's not so bad. At least you had backups of the stories.

  3. Thanks, Lydia and jen. The experience has turned out to be rather cleansing, and I'm happy to be giving new attention to older work. I may not even restore the backups.

  4. I'm glad you can be so philosophical about it - and that the stories themselves weren't lost. They are a treasure trove.

  5. o girl...

    It's nice to see you back.

    Thanks for reading with me,
