I’m in what I fondly refer to as grant-writing hell. Somehow out of desperation I’m in the middle of six pending applications and another four loitering around the back of the bike shed. It’s been 10 hour days in front of my laptop all week and my eyes are completely blown apart, like the ones in Bladerunner. So, I’m not sure how much blogging is going to happen in the next few days, weeks, years. But the research is getting me all excited, Taoist Plague Demon rituals, creepy Eastern Alps pagan festivals, all the usual stuff.
