Another quick note: The Rough Guide to the Universe now has an official release date: May 12, 2003. Which is two days after my birthday. So send no presents! Just buy the book.
Note the Amazon page to which I am linking says it will be released in July. That’s just wrong. And sick.
Also this is a good time to remind one and all I’m still very much looking for suggestions for The Book of the Dumb — follow this link to get all the details. Tell all your friends and relatives. The more suggestions I have, the less time I will spend in a massive panic trying to come up with stuff. And that’s a good thing.
