Wendy in Dundee

It was great to have my dear friend visit the city I love! We saw art, the dragon and the Howff, our local and more — then wandered about before heading to Edinburgh for the weekend (more pictures to come).

While I’m busy with my conference, here are some lovely photos: the Howff, progress on the V&A and the rail station, fascinating exhibit at the McManus, graduation with the penguins, and of course that cheeky gal.

When she and her familiar Henry end up as seconds in a magical duel, will anyone be left standing at the end of the shootout? Enter the dark streets and weird magic of HARD-BOILED WITCH and your life will never be quite the same. This is the second episode in the short story series.

One of my favourite places in the city: history, folklore, memory and beauty. A late night battle by Hecate Sidlaw, an oasis in the city. The Howff is a gem. It’s #FolkloreThursday — what stories do you know about cemeteries?

Dundee Stones

Next week at this time I will be at Loncon3 talking about Tove Jansson and her Moomins. And I will be missing Dundee 😦 It’s going to be strange returning to teaching in NY.
