This is a news episode recorded on August 10, 2008. (Happy birthday to Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull!)

First, though, Morven answers a listener question: "What's your podcast schedule -- is it monthly?" Yes, right now it's monthly.

VAMPIRES

Another shout out for the Out of the Coffin podcast (outofthecoffin.com), who gave *me* a big shout out on their last episode (thanks!).

Charlaine Harris was the Guests of Honor at Necon, and the news that Charlaine's books are being made into an HBO series starting September 7, 2008. Two other authors of vampire fiction that I ran into at Necon are Toni Kelner and Christopher Golden.

WITCHES

News about a numbered limited edition facsimile reproduction of Patricia Crowther's Witchcraft in Yorkshire, available from AzureGreen.com, HarvestShadows.com, and Amazon.com.

I've just returned from a short vacation. I thought I could sneak in a podcast before I left, but I wasn't able to. So here's the episode I meant to publish.

In this podcast, I talk about a vampire podcast I found, the types of witches in my novel, and I give a short, but very useful geek tip.
