I'm off to Winnipeg on the rails today, more anxiously than usual, as Rachel is now in her last month of pregnancy and the baby has already "dropped," which is one of the precursors to labour. We've got our fingers crossed that the little bugger waits until I'm home. This is one of the definite downsides to the railroading lifestyle.

The not-quite-compensatory upside on this particular trip is that I'll be taking advantage of my layover on Thursday to launch Jailbreaks in Winnipeg, 7:30 pm at the new Aqua Books location, 274 Garry St. Reading from the anthology will be contributor George Amabile and myself. If you're in the vicinity of Winnipeg, I hope to see you there.

I hope you will make it home safe and sound and before baby comes.

Just someone who likes Alden Nowlan and Ice Road Truckers.
