Oh, I forgot to mention — I did end up giving the site a minor facelift Friday evening.  If this is your first time visiting the site — or if you’ve been here lots of times, but you have the short-term memory of a goldfish — the site used to look like this:

…. Except, you know.  Bigger.

The site isn’t hugely different now, except:

  • I removed the podcast section, since I don’t seem to be getting around to doing another podcast any time soon.  I’m not even sure at this point if I still want to; I’m going to have to give that some thought.
  • I got rid of the old header completely, and the new one now has my name instead of the name of the site.  I’m thinking that, really, it’s my name I want you to remember when you leave here.
  • I got rid of the red-and-cream color scheme.  The red is a motif I’ve used since the earliest versions of this site, because of the name.  The cream I added because a lot of book sites and literary sites seemed to use a similar color scheme, and I liked that similarity, but ….  I dunno, the whole thing together just wasn’t working for me.

Just a few tweaks, really, but I think I’m a lot happier with it now. It looks cool and distant and creepy and elegant. I hope you like it, too. Let me know what you think.
