  • June 28, 2017 031: the phrase “mucustard”

    It's been quite a selection of weeks. My rhythm for these things has been thrown off due to a variety of things – frankly, there's been some newsletters I haven't written as I've been too angry to t...

  • June 07, 2017 030: I'm sorry for your pain.

    Today I am feeling happier, fitter, more productive. I am writing this in a coffee shop and I am ignoring the blueberry crumble that is making eyes at me from across the room. I am going to ignore its...

  • May 31, 2017 029: (Wow. What a lot of parentheticals.)

    I got a new router this week, and it is basically the greatest thing. The hyperplague that has infected my body (aka A Mild Cold) has rendered me physically weak, but steady bandwidth has left me stro...

  • May 24, 2017 028: don't worry, it's not that, serious, etc.

    A quick one this week, as I'm under the weather. Don't have too much sympathy for me. It's just a standard low-level cold. I'm working at about 80%, but the 20% I'm leaving is the newsletter.

  • May 03, 2017 025: We Came. We Saw. We Command & Conquered.

    Oddly big week, for a bunch of reasons. That you're not getting a joke first line probably says that. Details of it some herein.

  • April 20, 2017 024: A guillotine rather than a rack

    The Windy City is Mighty Windy that's why they call it The Windy City, you fool, stop wasting my time, just get away from me, you make me sick.

  • April 12, 2017 023: genre on fire

    This week I don't need anyone tweeting at me to remind me if I have books out. I need people tweeting at me to remind people of all the books I have out. N.B. I don't. I know them and I love them as m...

  • April 05, 2017 022: Gynty The Roo

    I'm in the sort of work place where I need someone tweeting at me that I have a comic out this week to realise I have a comic out this week.
