I’m not a big fan of “gee, sorry this site hasn’t been so active lately, I promise I’ll do better” posts, which are basically net kudzu, but since it’s a new year, it seems like a good time for a quick update: I have segued directly from working on the VJ book (out in May) […]

I apologize for the lack of posts this week; due to a family medical emergency, the regular schedule here at Rule Forty-Two HQ may be disrupted for some time to come.
