One of my friends at this coworking space has framed a copy of McCloskey's updated Cascadia map ( marshamccloskey.com/cascadiama ) and is trying to decide where to hang it.

Dutch artist Lotte Geeven is collecting singing sand from deserts across the world. Interview with sound clips.

"Imagine that you and I were standing in the middle of the desert right now, and all of a sudden the wind rose, making the whole desertscape around us hum like a gigantic brass band.

"The void holds no data about you, does not wish to contact you, and does not care who you are, or what you scream."
Somehow, I find this oddly comforting. I leave, without screaming.

The sffbookclub June selection is _The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion_ by Margaret Killjoy, book one in a series.

"Margaret Killjoy’s Danielle Cain series is a dropkick-in-the-mouth anarcho-punk fantasy that pits traveling anarchist Danielle Cain against eternal spirits, hypocritical ideologues, and brutal, unfeeling officers of the law."

All you have to do to participate is post to and watch the #sffbookclub hashtag, using the CW to note what chapter/section you might be spoiling.

Welcome!
