Comic Cuts - 18 November 2011
I now have the artwork to hand for the fourth strip and the bonus strip (thanks, Geoff!) and might even start scanning this weekend. I'm toying with the idea of taking a week off and just blitzing the book to see if I can get it finished before Christmas. It will be the new year before it's out because everything will come to a grinding halt while I wait for a proof, do the corrections, put in a print order, etc., etc. But it'll be nice to get the book out for January... get 2012 off to a good start. I'm not promising anything, but that's the current plan.
Random scans: I stumbled across a pile of SF novels in one of the local charity shops last Saturday and I'm including a pair of Jerry Pournelle titles from that cache. I had both these books years ago but had to sell off the bulk of my SF paperback collection at one point due to lack of space and cash. It's like finding an old friend when I spot them in charity shops.
