Don’t look at the future. We drew something awful on it.

    I’m sorry you had a rubbish 2017. I wish I could say something optimistic about the future, but I just finished writing something involving Black Monday, the South Seas Bubble, and the new Tax Bill. I sometimes fear I’m going to fall into the pit of pessimistic despair. But one of the many things that has kept me out of that pit has been your contributions to Eruditorum Press. It’s inspired me to start work on my own blog (that I keep pondering why people read it at all). You’ve introduced me to new authors and ideas I never would have on my own, so thank you for that. If I’m being honest, I’ve preferred the Garfield and Zelda articles to the Trek ones (also Holy crap, Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark! The opening notes of Punishment of Luxury alone should convince people they’re one of the greatest bands ever).

    I look forward to your future projects (and also the Cowboy Bebop entry of Vaka Rangi, which should come some time in-between Insurrection and Dominion War season 4 [DS9 season 6]). Also, if you need a copy editor, I’m available. I don’t need much, just a copy of the physical book when it’s done.

      That’s one of the nicest things anyone could have said about me, so thank you. I’m flattered I’ve been able to be such an inspiration, and I hope you continue to enjoy whatever nonsense I come up with next 🙂

    I ran across your post on the “Dirty Pair” and was wondering if you might know anyone interested in some of the comics. I ran across 10 of them in a bookcase I was cleaning out.
