Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

If you need any help with anything let me know, I'm down. I really like the theme of this issue.

There will still be plenty of such material for future issues.  Intermitts wise I'll put in wherever my stuff is wanted or relevant.  There's no real reserving of forfeiting of a whole series.

I'll see what I can do about whipping up some fake ads. I'll take a look at my dad's old survivalist magazines for inspiration.

I agree with Richter, no reason to consider yours forfeited.  But if you'd like to contribute to this one you're more than welcome, just let me know.

I love the sound of that.  Muchas gracias Enki.

I have a story in my head, but it is waiting for some quiet time to actually write it. It might not be for a while, because now that I have an assistant my days are largely occupied with actually working, and evenings with kids and friends, who all seem to be suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder or something because they're all depressed. Not the kids, the friends.

No problem, I want to try to get this issue out by sometime in early February, so there's still plenty of time.

Aha, so that's what the .bg in e-mail means!  I can't wait to see the translation, let me know how it goes.

Also, I did a mock-up of a potential cover for this issue, what does everybody think?

A little more spacing around the title would be good, but then you'd have to shrink the font a little, or at least put the title diagonally.  Tricky... But I do like the "Wait, is that a dismembered head in the corner?

I like it a lot! I agree with GA, a little more space around the title.

I loved the juxtaposition of Nigel's post

I have a story in my head, but it is waiting for some quiet time to actually write it [...]

with the cover pic - what is it BTW?
Just as the spirit is invisible, so also is its language a secret, & sometimes you can't tell when it's being sarcastic.
