The OF Blog: For those disappointed by my recent lack of reviews or "serious" posting...

For those disappointed by my recent lack of reviews or "serious" posting...

I just started a long-term subbing position (might become permanent if things improve at the facility, but I'm not anything more than 50/50 optimistic on that) and I have a LOT of paperwork to do this week, even when my class is out of school for the week.  So there won't be any reviews until this weekend at the earliest and don't expect much in the way of commentaries until then as well.  Then again, Saturdays are devoted to college football and occasionally I'll watch the NFL on Sundays, so there might be near-radio silence even then.

But don't fret!  I have a special book review that will go live Monday morning, plus there might be a little project that will be announced sometime in the coming week or two.  It's something that I think will generate some discussion and debate, plus for a lot of calls for my head, as well as for those of my two collaborators.  There might even be a little spin-off from it, something that if time and energy permits, it might lead to some interesting discussions over at least two venues. 

Sadly, it is not the finalization for Squirrelpunk, the anthology.  Maybe there will be more news about that later, once all those talented writers finish writing excellent tales about squirrels and their tails.  But this secret project is the next best thing to Squirrelpunk, I promise!  And no, it's not Tribblepunk or Tiggerpunk, awesome as though might be.

Anybody curious to guess what the project will be and who else is involved?

Can we do a twenty questions style guessing game? If so: does it involve furry animals in any way shape or form?

No. And no. :P

I'd be shocked if it isn't Paul and James.

Speaking about squirrels, have you seen this?

Ha, I already know one of the contributors is Paul cos he has been dropping the same vague hints on his site :-p

I wonder how surprising the third party will be, since James is not involved. Oh, and there very well could be a spinoff deal from this initial project, one that might involve others if I have the time to do that as well in the coming weeks.
