In other news, we’re coming up on a slim month away from the Alternate Press Expo in San Francisco, where we shall be having a booth for our Fourth (!) year! APE was the first convention we ever brought Frederick to. I remember sitting next to Kate Saturday with our table that had nothing on it but our business cards and a sign saying “Let us draw you a picture of Calvin Coolidge cuddling an otter.” Ah, memories!
