Big fan. Just finished “Agent to the Stars” & am now reading Maus because of it.

Hate to show my sign, but “TSSPTICTYA”?

My work’s firewall has blocked this site until the beginning of this year, so am now a daily reader, but am unsure what the short hand above stands for.

Thanks much!

I’m thinking TSSPTICTYA too

Scalzi has been tormenting us for a while with references to his “The Super Sekret Project That I Can’t Tell You About.”

Typo: “Know” with a k means someone possesses information about something, or “knows” it.

You want “Now” with no k, meaning “at the present moment”

You wanted us to be blunt and not pussyfoot around.

(And now I shall go in the other room and smugly write “alright” over and over again on expensive stationary with a fountain pen, giggling that Scalzi can’t do a damn thing about it.)

Zannah, thankyou. Captain Button figured out the reference – Piffany is a character from Aaron Williams’s comic, “Nodwick.” She is the kindest, nicest, best-est cleric in the universe.

Sihaya, I somehow doubt that was what Captain Button was referring to at all.

I took it as a reference to LRH’s followers, instead.

Though thank you for pointing out Nodwick. Looks interesting.

So what do we think this mysterious project actually *is*?? A pilot? A film adaptation of Old Man’s War for some major production company? Because either one of those would be *awesome.*

Or maybe John’s going to, like, *promise* to shoot a movie of Old Man’s War, but we get to the theatre, and it’s like a three-hour documentary about his cats.

The horror… the horror…
