Sailors and Snarks

Couple of things for yez. First of all, it looks like the amazing Tom Neely will be illustrating a couple of my Popeye scripts, which is frankly terrific news. Tom and I have been talking about working together on something for a couple of years now; that it turns out to be Popeye is so much the better.

  5. I thought it was a monthly! I only wrote the thing, I'm afraid - scheduling matters are outside my jurisdiction. I turned the scripts in on time, what can I tell you?

    Totally agree about Tom Neely's terrificness, but.

  6. There are currently two scheduled space hotels, and a number of organizations expressing interest in the idea. The first space hotel, named Nautilus, is likely to be launched by Bigelow Aerospace in 2010. Hilton International is working on the Space Islands Project, a scheme to link together spent Space Shuttle fuel tanks to create a large space station. When originally conceived in 1999, the hope was to get this launched by 2005, but the


The spam filter is back on because it just goes berserk if I switch it off. Sorry - I'll get to your comments ASAP!
