In your new house idea folder, collect helpful articles and pictures from magazines to share with your contractor. (In a recent Log Homes Illustrated (September issue) article, a contractor said that a client's articles often contained the manufacturer's information so they were able to locate the product easily.)

We were at Florida Victorian Architectural Antiques in DeLand today, btw. They have a huge selection of indoor and outdoor architectural pieces! We've bought a few things there over the years, including our green 1920s pedestal bathroom sink. (The sink is much greener than it looks in this photo.) Here's their website link: FLORIDA VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURAL ANTIQUES | Vintage building & house materials and parts

In today's paper, Tom Palmer's environmental column is about the recently published book, Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams: A Social History of Modern Florida. A proverb is quoted from the book: Hurricanes are nature's way of making Floridians learn geography. Sounds like an interesting book.

Why don't you tell us a little about the origins and content of your new anthology? Do you think sword and sorcery readers will find it of interest?
Magistria: Realm of The Sorcerer is a shared world collection in a day and age when books like this just don't happen anymore. I missed the old days of Thieves' World and thought why not? I came up with a fairly simple idea, a goddess burst into a billion shards, spreading magic all over the world. I didn't want to dictate to the writers but give them a jumping-off point. The concept the book is built on is that the world is ruled by different types of mages, each manipulating a single element: water, air, fire, metal, etc.
