(The Set to Sea book is out now!)

• I’m going to be going to this year’s Small Press Expo! It’s September 11-12, in Bethesda MD.
• Speaking of SPX, this year’s nominees for the Ignatz awards have just been announced! One nominee I was pleased to see was Matt Wiegle’s story in Papercutter #13, The Orphan Baiter – a very funny short comic that takes the piss out of both steampunk and Victorian rags-to-riches stories.

• I didn’t realize that Patrick Dean’s amazing cover for the Flagpole (Athens local weekly) last week, was only the first of a 2-part set! Until I saw the second one on the stands yesterday, that is. On the occasion of the university students rolling back into town.
