It’s a Friday when a lot of people shop, and do so hoping to get a great deal, so I’d like to offer you what I think is a great deal:
You have to click on track 02 to hear this, but it’s worth the extra effort! You can go the YouTube route for a live, unmixed version. You’ll get to watch the Pips do their thing…and that’s always worth your time.
Thank you to The World Science Festival for inviting me to take part in the best convention panel I’ve ever been on. Moderated by Jonathan Coulton (@jonathancoulton), it featured Dominic Walliman (@DominicWalliman) and Charles Soule (@CharlesSoule). All smart, all funny, all with interesting insights into comics and science…and all a great pleasure to meet and get to know.
First Second and I have created new teacher’s guides for Feynman and Primates. They look great (that’s because of First Second’s fabulous designers) and are full of useful information about the books (I can take some credit for that part).
I find myself sad to close it. It served me well for over a decade and I loved finding the yellow “a package is waiting for you” slip or a note from someone who just discovered one of my books and had to tell me about it by sending a letter. Paying a visit after a few weeks out of town was like unlocking a long-abandoned storage locker, one that might be full of treasure, and I have happy memories of using a trip to get my mail as a way to trick myself into getting a few miles of running in during the dead of winter.
I’m not sure what will happen to good old eighty-one forty-five next, but I’m about to find out. Or not…it probably transforms itself into a miniature black hole, from which nothing escapes. And yes, I’ve already made sure those checks don’t cross that event horizon!
