    And that other time, like, five years ago.

    But seriously, it'll be interesting to see whether there's anything really new besides the short fiction. I'll certainly devour it all, but I'm a little pensive about what new stuff is really gonna come up in the non-fic sections. But hey, I'm big on behind the scenes, so the more the merrier, I guess.

    There was an episode of SciFi's The Invisible Man, back when Farscape was still on, when the comic-relief supporting character Eberts was under the influence of some sort of rage-inducing bioweapon, and he cried, "I'm going to frelling kill you!"

    The featured woman-creature-whatever in that new movie Splice is apparently named Dren, according to the ads, and I just find that so bizarre, as in "Don't they know what that word means?!"

    Alright! When I heard about "Float Out," I figured that was gonna be instead of A Shepherd's Tale, not in addition to. That's fantastic!

    So, I got my copy of Still Flying yesterday. Haven't started reading it yet, but it looks like it's got some good features. I'm curious to see what this legendary practical joke was.
