2018 has been a terrific year for me and, I hope, for you. I published the second issue of Deep Fried: The Hero’s Journey, the second issue of PEEK!, and I ran my third successful Kickstarter. I suppose I have some of you to thank for all these triumphs, so please accept my most grudging appreciation.

I am currently in Florida drinking white wine as though it were going out of fashion, so I won’t drone on. I will share my plans for 2019 with you as soon as I finish the bottle, for it is at the bottom of these bottles that my best ideas are always floating.

In the meantime, I wish you all a Happy New Year and good luckshin thur 2019… oh good! The grape joosh ish kicking in! Bye bye forever twenteeneighteen!
