>Personally, I like to follow that up with a suggestion to try that
comment rectally inserted. There's only one thing worse than a
Vampire player who plays for killing - a prejudiced jerk who sees
that in every player of the game, even when it's played in the
mature, insightful way it's meant to be played.
It's almost like the Spark, or at least the impression I get of it.
Many folks with the Spark do little to no harm, using it to develop
new things and improve the lot of the masses, like good little
minions of society. It's the few who actually do cause problems, by
madness or design, who give the others a bad name among the unwashed
rabble - I mean, the common man. All Sparks therefore tend to be
viewed as loose cannons - dangerous, but too beneficial on the whole
to simply be disposed of. See? Prejudice. It's a dirty little
beast, regardless of what it's applied to. Even something as simple
as a hobby.
Yes, I just accused you, original poster, of prejudice. Yes, I'm
aware that it's not very nice to do that, and you'll probably object
to what I said. I don't care. I've got everything laid out - back
up your slanderous lies, apologize, or just remember to be more
careful before you start dispensing discourtesy. I'm rather curious
which you'll choose.

with more episodes in it, long before the Startoons excerpt. I only
have one copy of D'Arc Tangent though.

I see a thread here - one copy of D'Arc Tangent, pre-ordered.
It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will
determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate
discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor
must preside at our assemblies.

Obligatory Phil Content: Phil Foglio has had three nominations and two
wins for Best Fan Artist Hugo, nomination in 1976 [same year as "The
Capture"] and wins in 1977 and 1978. "The Capture" was nominated in
1976 for "Best Dramatic Presentation" along with "Dark Star," "Monty
Python And The Holy Grail," "Rollerball" and the winner, "A Boy And His
- I actually bought a copy of "D'Arc Tangent" used at a half-price book store.
It was pretty cool. Then I lost it (along with most of my other comics) in
a fire. That was less cool.

christmas vacation and hasn't come back yet.
> how are things going on the publishing end of things over there?Same as any end of things. panic at too many projects, not enough
staff and/or money and/or resources and juggling everything in sight.
Oh, and Did I mention the tap dancing? _Lots of that._ Can anybody
tell me where to get copies of Ardsley or Boris? I'm not proud. I'd
take a few Constructs too. Too many things, not enough me.
And I missed issue 7! <grrrrhhhh>
- funny.. there seems to be a lot of overlap in fans of the Bujold
"Vorkosiverse" and fans of the Foglio's "Girl Genius" series.
assuming that said fans have read both....... there are a lot of Bujoldians
that i introduced to the Girl genius books who absolutely adored them, but
hadnt read them before.
i assume likewise there are fans of the Girl genius series that have
tragically missed out on Lois' works
(ob Bujold fan club motto "write, Lois, write!")
