Find this Metafilter novelist

Yesterday, I was hanging out on the site, and in a conversation about the pandemic, a Mefite mentioned having written a book, and feeling like it was published into the abyss because of the pandemic.

Metatalktail Hour: Minor Missings

Happy groggy Sunday for those of you experiencing Daylight Savings Time. I was realizing as we hit the one year anniversary of these Pandamnit Times that I miss some weird things.

10 Year Anniversary of Tohoku Earthquake

Ten years and a couple hours ago, the Tohoku earthquake happened, setting off the tsunami and nuclear power disaster in Fukushima. It was my last day at a high school in suburban Chiba, outside of Tokyo, and, pre-smart phone, I had no way of getting in touch with Mrs. Ghidorah, or knowing much of what was happening. The thread on the blue was an immense help at the time. [more inside]

MetaTalktail Hour: What is on your walls?

Prompted by a fun poster thread on MLTSHP, I want to know about a thing that is on your wall. Could be a poster, a painting, a picture, a wall-hanging, a shadow, a window, a post-it, something you like to look at that you think others might like to see. Feel free to describe it or link us to a picture of it.
