The Now Standard Back From Worldcon Disclaimer + September Schedule Notes

Hi there! I’ve been away for several days and not looking at e-mail or much of anything else, and also have to dive back into work immediately, so it will probably take me a couple of days to clear my backlog of mail. If you sent me an e-mail in the last week you were hoping you’d get a response to, and I have not responded by Friday noon Eastern, go ahead and resend it. Thank you.

September Warning: September will be an extraordinarily busy month for me, with two — count them, two! — projects effectively in crunch time. Timely updates to Whatever and/or fiddling about on social media will take a back seat to getting that stuff done. So that August semi-hiatus that so very clearly wasn’t? It’s moved to September. Expect fewer/shorter posts, etc, you know the drill.

Finally, a quick, happy note: One nice thing for me is that here in the first week of September, Whatever’s already had almost as many visitors in 2012 as it had for all of 2011. So thanks, folks.

  1. Compulsively checking the Whatever is one of my duties now. You’re welcome. Good luck with all that work. Can’t wait to read it.

    While I think the community here can take some small credit for this (we do, after all, make the clicky thingys) The real credit goes to you. You run a great site that makes coming here fun and often educational. I’d particularly like to thank you for adding some good stuff to my reading list. But it the environment you create that allows for some really enlightening and lively discussions that makes this place feel right.

  3. And I quote:

    Ah hah. Today’s minor Spare Goats incident IN NO WAY questions the truth of the statement above. Yep.

  4. 15 minutes work in one case and a bad goat joke tweet in the other, for not one but TWO book sales today? Hard, hard work. You should go rest on your porch with some lemonade now, and consider using goats instead of riding mower to keep your lawns down.

  5. I’m not altogether convinced that refraining from sacrificing the goat was wise; the mallet and the cursed war hammer were probably looking forward to going mano a mano for Alpha Club…
