Time once again for String’s annual post of shameless self promotion.
Summer 2021 rental reservations have opened for our beach place on Cape Cod. It’s in North Truro, just over a mile from the Provincetown line.
Reservations can be made at the Kinlan-Grover website. For some reason the link has changed this year, wiping out the prior years’ reviews and feedback. But it’s still the same place, same amenities, and is already filling fast with repeaters from prior years. Prices vary by week, and there are significant savings in the shoulder seasons.
While I’m at it, how about something to read while you self-isolate on the beach?
Fernando’s catalog continues to grow. Of course I am biased, but I do recommend all of these most wholeheartedly.
The first of a burgeoning science fiction/mystery series. This collection of stories features a strong woman of action and a reclusive alien genius as the detectives. It’s fast plotted, tight and full of compelling characters, alien cultures, heroics, and intrepid investigations. With great lashings of sarcasm thrown in.
This collection features retro-inspired short stories, and includes both SF and fantasy, ranging across a wide variety of tones and subjects. More aliens, stealthy killers, high camp wandering heroes, and the clash of class and ideals. Some played for ironic amusement, some less flippant.
The latest offering – a novella for plague times. This is an intrepid tale of perseverance, love, art, science, and separation, set in a near future that is both all too familiar and strange.
A novella length taste of epic fantasy in the classic style, this is the story of Reginal Maigntar, Falcon Knight and Lord of Thul, who seemed destined to live a life built on the achievements of his predecessors. Until…
Yes, it’s time again for my Annual Shameless Act of Self-Promotion.
Thinking of a early season/full season/late season getaway? Someplace warm and blissfully quiet? Yet with the excitement of night life, galleries, shopping, theater, and restaurants close by? Want to avoid overseas flights?
Have I got a hide-away for you.
Our summer condo in North Truro, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, right on the beach close to the Provincetown line is available for booking. for the summer 2020 season (although it is filling fast).
We are at Beach Point (the arrow on the map points back to Wellfleet, Provincetown is in the other direction, about a mile to the town line). We have reserved parking for two cars, plus a bus stop right in front of the building for the local shuttle to P’town – a quick trip to those restaurants, galleries, theater, and night life, with or without your car, and we are well within easy biking distance, too.
The condo is on the second floor, with a covered deck that provides morning/early afternoon shade (the one with the red deck chairs, below). The Shoreline development has its own private beach, and offers picnic tables, lounge chairs, bike racks, and grills to all who stay.
The apartment itself is two bedroom with two queen beds, with a full kitchen (full size stove with oven, fridge. dishwasher, microwave, sink, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and even a lobster pot). It is air conditioned/heated, and also has a washer and dryer, and a full bath with shower and whirlpool tub. The living room sofa folds out into a third queen size bed, so the place will sleep six, comfortably.
Pricing and availability are listed at the agent’s website. Prices vary by week, with significant savings in the shoulder seasons.
So, come and pull up a chair. Put your feet up, pull out your knitting or a good book, and feel the relaxation!
And since I am on the topic of Shameless Self-Promotion – here’s more.
A good book?
Even for those who need more immediate escape and can’t wait until warm weather, I always suggest a good book.
It’s no secret that The Resident Male writes books and short stories. Here’s his lead offering – the first of a burgeoning science fiction/mystery series. Of course, I’m biased, but I do recommend it highly. It’s a good read, full of compelling characters, alien cultures, heroics, and intrepid investigations – with a dash of sarcasm thrown in.
Meet Blair. Meet Terendurr. While you can’t quite share that favorite beverage with them, after getting to know them I’m betting that you will wish you could.
