Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon I'll bet you thought those biological tracers were a throwaway gag. And Haas is probably going to regret having told Chaucer to find flaws in his plans. Moral of the story: Intelligent beings don't always do what you want them to. Often they do what they think is best for you, instead.

On to other things! A few days ago, I mentioned there would probably not be a collected paper version of MoS because the book would cost a fortune to buy and therefore no one would purchase it. When someone suggested that we contact Steve Jackson to publish it, I answered that I didn't think a 400 page color graphic novel was the sort of thing SJGames does. I received an email from Mr. Jackson in which, after agreeing that a 400 page color graphic novel was outside his usual production and marketing envelope, he said:

Then I thought about ducks for a while, but that's not relevant.
So Steve Jackson won't print a collection of MoS because he's considering printing a coffee-table book on ducks instead. Oddly, I didn't edit his email at all...other than abridging most of it for humorous effect.

If rumors start flying that Steve Jackson Games is going to publish a retrospective on John James Audubon, my work here will be complete.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs How big is Pindar, anyway? The answer is simple: like Godzilla or King Kong, Pindar is exactly as big as he needs to be to make the scene work. Speaking of Godzilla and King Kong, you may find of interest this learned essay on the biology of B-Movie Monsters.

And since this is Page 405, I think I'll link you to the classic Internet short film 405: The Movie.
