Current thing I need to tell people 'bout - I've got an event at a book festival in Köniz on September 6th, 2015, and we only have an hour but apparently there will be a panel of kid readers and an actor and I will also be playing THE ORGAN. So. . . that should be wildly interesting. From what I've gathered, the book festival takes place in a cathedral and the organizers heard that I play the organ and were no doubt like:
|"Hmm. Stefan + Organ. That can't go too wrong, can it?"|
(A: it can)
All that to say, if you want to see me talking about faeries one last time and maybe hear me play something grand and gothic on a pipe organ, come see meeeeee! We will send these books off in style.
Current favorite music - Schumann Lieder. The way he reflects the lyrics in his music is genius. I thought this song was ugly for a while and then we analyzed it in class and now I'm obsessed.
Reign of Fire soundtrack by Edward Shearmur. The movie is not nearly as good as movie about a post-apocalyptic world overrun by fire-breathing dragons *should* be, but the score is dark and harsh and interesting and I like it.
Current Cool Thing - I have a story out in a scary anthology! From Penguin/Random House! My story is called 'M' and features a blind girl who unwittingly stumbles across a murder as its taking place in a grand country house in turn-of-the-century England, whereupon she decides to discover the killer's identity and catch him before he catches her.
Thazzit. Bye. :)
