Dear Weirdo,

I regret to announce that I'm going on semi-Leave of Absence.  I have modest health problems that are limiting my productivity.  There may come a time in the near future when I regain my full energy.  There may even come a time in the more-near future when I can contribute once again to my blogs (and thus to the Google Group mailing list that is producing the message you're now reading).  It's just that right now, I can't.

The weekly syndicated News of the Weird newspaper column (which some of you read by being on the Google Group newsoftheweird) will continue on schedule.  In fact, having to struggle so hard now on that column is the main reason I am insecure about my ability to produce other work.

Please resist the urge to send me condolences.  I'm definitely not malingering, but on the other hand, I'm not so bad off that I need to read condolences.  It's just a Leave of Absence.

If you are now so disappointed that you need to say good-bye to this Group, please click the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of this message.  Otherwise, stay put, and you'll hear from me from time to time (at least, from time to time; perhaps more frequently).

Thankya, thankyavermuch.
