See "Excuses, excuses" below; I'm still furiously scribbling/typing on the first draft of "The Delirium Brief", which ain't due out until mid-2017, but hey. It should be baked by the end of the month at which point I can put it away to cool for a while and do something else—which may include blogging.
Meanwhile, feel free to talk among yourselves. Who wants to go first? Or carry over a conversation from an earlier thread?
