I have been remiss in pushing this, but, with two weeks left, things ARE ABOUT TO GET HAIRY.
As you may or may not recall, a while back Strawsburg and I did our best Asimov impressions in a competition eventually judged by Tom Merritt. That bit of nonsense has now set down the Foundation for a new challenge, The Fictional Follicle Face Off: This year we’re allowing an open field. Anyone can join, total donations collected for MS research have become part of the scoring, and the Asimov-specific connection has (Night)fallen – participants can aim to re-create ANY science fiction or fantasy author OR character.
At the moment we have three competitors on the donation page, but I do know Straws is lurking in the shadows, likely attempting to lull the others into a false sense of security by not divulging his donation total too early.
From here till the end of the month I’ll be posting daily updates. If you’d like to vote with your wallet (and help defeat MS) please use one of the following links.

Now, while I’ve got your attention: Should I become Larry Niven?
