The Bastardrats meant, of course, to use my real last name in the TOC which is Hoffman-Dachelet.

If we are not going to be at Wiscon, when/where we will be able to get it? Or can I just google Barth again on a produce question?

John,

We should have a paypal link for online orders either soon before or soon after Wiscon. We'll be sure to post it here.

Feel free to keep Googling Barth about produce, however....

Btw, for those coming to Wiscon (not that far away), our release party should be a lot of fun. Mr. Robert Wexler will be releasing his PS Publishing novella at the party, and we're also teaming up with Jim Munro. Jim will be presenting selections from product placement invoices he sent to major corporations that he referenced in his most recent novel Everyone in Silico. Some of which can be seen on his website (http://www.nomediakings.org), which is a great site all around.

Plus more dancing than you can shake a stick out. Very important.

Shake a stick AT. Don't know what a "stick out" is. A cross between a stakeout and a sickout, maybe.

A "stick out" is the term used in marketing to indicate the length of time a product can sit on a shelf before being pulled for inadequate sales. Dancing you can shake a stick out is the term for re-ordering the product after sales exceed expectations.

Which Rat IIs are are going to be attending this event?

I'll be there. Does RT II have a catchy subtitle yet? RT II: Rat Spoor? or, RT II: Spawn of the Rat?

Wiscon, lord:

We were planning to skip it this year (for frugality's sake) but I'll see what I can do. I really want to meet the other new 'Bastards.

Drat. We're not going to make it to Wiscon. It seems that we're moving to Seattle, which is great, but all will be chaos for next couple of months. I'm agitating for a trip to World Fantasy, though-- maybe we'll see you guys there.

New title of the chapbook:

Rabid Transit: A Mischief of Rats

So there you go.

Victoria, sorry you're not going to be able to come. Kristin and I will be at Worldcon, but not World Fantasy. Which is, you know, insane a week before The Wedding. But hopefully a fun sort of insane.

You'll be at Wiscon in spirit!

And let's not all miss that the stories from Ratbastards I are all honorable mentions in the new _Best of!_ I tried to post a "huzzah, good show" somewhere else, but apparently failed miserably. Huzzah! Good Show!

Just got my copies of Rabid in the mail and I'm pleased with the presentation. I've never seen a nicer, cleaner, chapbook. A friend of mine at work says that, based on the bios in the back alone, we Ratbastards are all certifiable.

Got my copy from Herr Minz, it looks great! Once I get caught up on my Hugo reading I'll be delving into some great chapbooks I've gotten recently!

Wasn't sure where to put this, but a brief, very positive review of A Mischief of Rats has appeared online:

Andy Hatchell reviewed the stories in Rabid Transit II and lurved 'em:

They're mixed in with reviews of other stories and the Ministry novel in & Oz, but they're in there.

re: Garcia, Victoria Elizabeth. "Wally's Porn" :


"Wally is a nicely drawn character, full of amusing contradictions, and the plot of the story is quite charming despite the heavy erotic content."

clearly andy means *because of* when he says "despite*, yes?

congrats, youse. great review!

My story "The Headline Trick" is due out in translation in the January issue of Hayakawa SF. So if you live in Japan go buy a copy and tell me how good or bad the translation is.

hehe, I will do my best to find Hayakawa SF and see what I can understand of the translation, Doug.
