Someday I'm going to write about a story about being lost in the Vortex. Unless I get lost there before I get a chance to write it. Or maybe the story will get lost? But it could be fun.(less)

The print version of my new book will be available at the end of April. I'll contact the librarians to see if I can set something up for after that.
