West Coast represents!

Give me some help here.

There is/was a comic in the Bay Area about a Chinese-American boy moving to Chinatown, but not speaking Chinese or particularly liking Chinese food. It once used the phrase “That’s when the conversation went all channel 26”, which I both understood and admired.

I have finally accepted that this comic was not Chunky Rice.

Does anyone have a clue what it was?

EDIT: Never mind, it’s Bus Stop (and Double Happiness) by Jason Shiga.

Look for it.

Why is it that a large part of the pleasure of writing for me is imagining the eventual book covers?

Here is the wrap-around cover for my Mexican alternate history fantasy. It may end up being my NaNoWriMo this year, if I think I can manage that.

Other writing projects are looming, and yet work does not seem to be slowing down. I guess sleep will have to go.
