So I sit down to write last night, and what do I find waiting for me in my inbox from Scott Cupp but the PDF proof of Cross Plains Universe for my copy check. The whole frellin' book! We're talking Howard Waldrop, Michael Moorcock, Gene Wolfe... I can only assume this is Cupp's thinly-disguised effort to keep me from writing. Needless to say, he succeeded. I didn't write a single word last night, and I'm pretty bleary-eyed this morning from all the reading. It wasn't all fun and games--I did a quick once-over of my story and found a whole passle of typesetting errors that're going to take a bit of work to straighten out. But man, this is a killer book.

    Woo hoo! I've been telling you it was a killer book, now there is some substantiation. Hopefully I'll see those corrections soon so I can pass them on to Chris.

  2. Not to fear, Scott. The corrections consist of those word changes I emailed you guys about a couple of months back, plus the italicized text was dropped in a number of places. Easy fixes, all. I should have them for you by tomorrow.

    And do you think Finn has any ax left after all that grinding he did?
