Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday, not to mention the commiseration of sharing my birthday with Michael Jackson's funeral. I was so absorbed with my self-pity that I forgot to mention: I'm having a contest on my other blog--you can win a signed set of the trilogy, The Cronus Chronicles, by Anne Ursu! Come over and answer the question on the blog for a chance to win! They're ripping good tales that jump off from the question: What if the Greek myths were real?
Not to mention they start with the main character, Charlotte, finding a gateway to Hades--at the Mall of America. You go, Charlotte.
