The Writing Life, cont.  

Russell Farr of Ticonderoga Publications (way yonder on the far side of Down Under) has e-mailed me galley proofs of both volumes of Silurian tales, The 400-Million-Year Itch and Invisible Kingdoms, and even as I write my little Hewlitt Packard All-in-One office machine is steadfastly chugging along, printing out the 287 pages of 400MYI.  This will be the first time I have actually read the three dozen tales in proper narrative sequence (see below), because I wrote them all out of order, as they occurred to me, over a period of almost twenty years.

Here are the contents for both volumes, assembled from all over.
