2014 Holiday Greetings
This year began sadly. Sue's sister Beth died on January 9 of cancer. Sue got to visit her for six weeks at the end of 2013, which was a great comfort. Beth was telling jokes until the end.
In happier news, in early August we traveled to Bayonne, on the French seacoast, for Jerry's brother Tom's birthday. We spent several days with him and his wife Mary swimming and visiting the sights.
We also went to London later in August to attend the World Science Fiction Convention, arriving a day early for some tourism, and we saw Julius Caesar at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.
Jerry traveled for work to Milan, Tel Aviv, and Budapest for work this year, and he's continuing to study Portuguese and take classes new computer technologies.
Sue's translation of the novel Prodigies by Angélica Gorodischer should be published by Small Beer Press in August 2015. She also translated the script for a film, Mindgate, that should enter production in spring. She's still writing, had a short story, “Summer Home,” published in Asimov's Magazine, and is looking for an agent for a novel.
As usual, we plan to spend a quiet Christmas in Spain.
¡Felices fiestas y próspero año nuevo!
