News for those who're keen on Kiernan

Woo hoo!

I am a vocal fan of author Caitlin R. Kiernan (seen in The Land of LJ as greygirlbeast). I'd heard via her journal today that one of her big projects for this year is out in bookstores: her novelization of the Neil Gaiman-Roger Avary-scripted Beowulf. It's out a little early, even. And now I have my copy.

I'm keen on Kiernan. Some of you are also keen on Kiernan. I'm hoping lots more people become keen on Kiernan, thanks to this.

But no, I'm not reading it yet. To quote Christopher Walken as Johnny Smith in The Dead Zone, "Some things are worth waiting for." (He was talking about sex; I'm talking about a Caitlin R. Kiernan novel. Some of my friends would argue it's the same thing.)
