It’s a frigid Friday here in North Dakotaland with temperatures nestling down into the single figures at night. In fact, last night while walking the Bargepole, I actually felt COLD.
Fortunately, I have a gaggle of new books on their way over the weekend and a warm laptop. There’s also some good college football, the NBA getting its early season feet, and a trip to San Diego in a couple of weeks to keep me toasty.
As I weather the adjustment to winter, enjoy a little flock of quick hits and varia:
- Eidolon is doing a Special Issue on Papyrus Thefts.

The Bargepole is sick so he’s conserving this strength.
