THIS WEEK'S ISSUE IS ABBREVIATED. Our Managing Editor, Brian Whiddon, had outpatient surgery this week (no, he does NOT have the beer virus and he's resting comfortably now). He's bummed because I told him no writing allowed while he's on painkillers. ;) And, while I (Angela) would normally cover him, we were swamped with new BookLocker author sign-ups this week so I'm absolutely buried. We'll be back on our regular content schedule next week. :)
