Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon I'm going to quote an email from Tim Hollis that made me smile.
I've been reading "A Miracle of Science" since you guys were featured on the Steve Jackson Games website at some point in the distant past. I've greatly enjoyed the comic in that time, and you guys have done an excellent job all around. However, recently, I've been feeling a certain amount of dread that the end is drawing near, and in particular my fear concentrates on the fate of Dryden. He, after all, isn't the brightest emitter in the array, but I think he's a nice mechanical entity that just happened to be built by the wrong crowd. As the comic creeps closer and closer to the conclusion, which I'm sure will involve some degree of violence, I'm filled with apprehension. I can't eat, can't sleep, and am gripped by abject terror over the fate of Dryden. Well, to be more accurate, I can eat and sleep, and describing my terror as abject is probably misrepresentative.
I must really have a reputation for killin' off characters. One which is undeserved, I suspect, since there hasn't been a death yet.

Although perhaps I should be proud of this. One of the things that makes the new Battlestar Galactica compelling to watch is the sense one gets that one of the major characters could buy it at any moment. Although they normally get mortally wounded and then wind up back in the saddle for the next episode.

In other news, we received our first bit of fan writing (as opposed to the many beautiful pieces of fan art we've received) a couple of weeks ago. I've converted it from Microsoft Word into HTML, and forwarded it to Mark to be put up on the fan art page. I cannot tell you how cool it is to have someone write something for MoS. I suspect Mark is used to people sending in fan art, but fan writing is a new experience for me.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs I can't add anything to that, really. The fanfic is here if you don't want to have to hike allllllll the way over to the Fan Art and Extras page to see it.
