Howdy to all you adoring Gatherers and Grand Geeks of the realm! It seems that a terribly punitive heat spike has come to the California southland and I am typing this with a huge heat advisory hovering over my head. Just the kind of day to enjoy a good bit of indie reading by poolside. But before I indulge in my own delights, lets see what looks good this week!
