Hard copy ordered! Does anyone else think that Kirkus might have slightly better idea of LSoS’s suitable audience than AndrewsMcMeel? I’m just not sure about “for ages 8 to 12”….
Vix Reynard ebook? I’ll consider it. I’m still holding out hope that they’ll be published hardcopy eventually, which I consider vastly preferable.
sigh Well, thanks for letting me know, Blymie. I just kind of took it for granted that they’d stick around.
Anyone else see that “Heckbender”, “Vix Reynard”, and “NSNR” have been taken down? Please let the ebooks be available still…..unless there’s a distinct possibility of their also being printed in the next couple of years.
For a chance to receive some of your original art, Mr. Merritt, I would gladly order a hard copy. I prefer reading real books over ebooks anyway. Thank you so much!
@Green Darkness: I think you’re right. Flimm might have been pummeled into another dimension by Twila, but I don’t believe his influence has entirely left our planet…I’m actually not kidding about the earthquake. But, it was only a tiny one. Almost a non-event, really. I just happen to live in an area prone to them for part of the year.
@Green Darkness: yeah, I did see that! Looks like Sly’s former employees are glad to be rid of him, as I suppose they have the right to be, but all the same, I’m sorry to see him go…then again, we thought he was gone for good after NSNR as well…:D Always happy to sample another batch! I’m afraid I’ve got a sweet tooth.
Hmm. Looks like it’s a renamed NSNR. Well, that’s dandy! I think that’s one of the better stories to start other people on anyway. I guess I can see why the publishers might have wanted the name changed—not that there was anything wrong with the original title! Publishers are weird sometimes.
gasps for air I’m back again. Phew!@ Zarniwoop: yes, “Walnuts and Gromit” was a flavor from “No Story, No Room”, the one that started it all for me. (Speaking of which, I’d LOVE to hear about the Dreadful Fate of Jonathan York! Yessiree, the book is good as on my shelf!)@Green Darkness: thanks for the terribly dapper dancing Lobsters, Blymie. :D It’s great to see you and everyone else again.grabs a carton each of Pomegranate Janet and Fanta Tollbooth Gotta get my fix. wink The summer’s been awfully full for me. There was that earthquake, for starters… I’m sorry I ever let myself be kept away…(I kid about the earthquake. Perhaps.

5 months. I’ve been gone 5 months.Long enough for me to have forgotten how to create spaces in my posts. How did it happen!I still see some people I know (great to see you all), but even if LSOS came back tomorrow, would all of the Lobsters come back with it? I want to engage in the same light hearted chatter we did when the strip was still running, but what is there to say?I mean, I guess I could give some news from my own life and other places:—I’m posting this from my summer residence.—My studies in film and animation have begun in earnest.—The great Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli is closing down following the retirement of Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata.—I’m going to see Pixar’s “Inside Out” soon.—Savannah, GA is a great city.—Sir Terry Pratchett, British fantasist, passed away this year.—I am so glad I started his Discworld series. I wish I’d started it sooner. :D (That’s at you, Angua. Greetings!)Well, I just wanted to prove that I haven’t given up on the Lost Side. grabs carton of Walnuts and Gromit Maybe I’ll make it back tomorrow or sometime. Cheers!
