Most of the editors in my office have been laid low by a cold bug, including me (*sniffle cough*). No doubt Hobkin feels more chipper than I do right now, but does he get me soup? ...'Course, his idea of comfort food is mealworms and crickets so that's probably just as well.
In other news, Part IV: Temple of Mau and Part V: Healer's Gift (conclusion) of "Gifts Not Asked For" is out in the January '10 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly (I somehow missed when this issue came out originally). I'm also doing a week-long author Q&A on the Bards & Sages discussion forum during the week of 2/22. Be sure to swing by!
