First off, a few plugs.
First, if you use miniatures in your gaming, there's some really cool 3D facades on Kickstarter right now.
Greg, the guy behind it, is a great person who makes great terrain. Definitely give it a look and, if you're so moved, give Greg
Second, I'm a guest at LosCon in Los Angeles this month (November 23-25). They're bringing me out to talk to you, draw for you,
judge you with silent disdain - all the important stuff! It's been ten years since my last LA Reader Gathering and it would be
great to see anyone who can drop by, especially since the 25th is my birthday. Also, the ever amazing Seanan McGuire will be
there talking about her amazing stories and even more amazing cats (fun fact, Seanan is only one of two people my cat Odine trusted
immediately the first time she met her). Also in attendance will be Taliesen Jaffe, who've I've been fortunate enough to know
for many years now. He's a wonderful person and, of course, super popular now with everyone thanks to his amazing work on
everyone' favorite, "She's the Sheriff." Oh, and there's this
thing called Critical Role he's working on. Give it a shot.

being vague because I don't like getting a lot of medical advice. But it's been going on for a while now. I'm sorry that it's
slowing things here down. I've gone to the doctor's and here's hoping. Thanks for sticking it out, and especially thanks to Michael,
who does my convention stuff, and the LosCon staff who've had to deal with me dropping out a lot. And various other folks I owe
Honestly, I just wanted to check in. I'm alive. I could be better. Baby's sick but she'll recover. I still love the comic but
kinda hate my body. I'll keep doing S*P. I hope you'll keep reading it. -R.
