• The third great gathering of Tolkien fans in Kentucky has now been announced for September, 2014! A Long Expected Party 3 (acronym “AL3P) is now open for registration, and the 170 beds available at Shaker Village for the event are already largely claimed. Nevertheless, you can still register, and offsite lodging is still available. I’m delighted to announce that I will be one of three guests at the event; the other two are Dr. Michael Drout and Dr. Amy Sturgis. For more information, see: http://www.alep-ky.us/
• The first ever 2014 Jef Murray Chronicles Calendar is in the works! This calendar features images inspired by the Narnia tales of C.S. Lewis. Watch this space for more details!
• I am a confirmed guest of honour at this year’s Dragon*Con in Atlanta! Stay tuned for more details on panels, presentations, etc. that I’ll be participating in!
• I am also a confirmed guest at this year’s MythMoot II in December. Stay tuned for more info!
Due to a protracted rest period being required for my strained shoulder, I have to put on hold my Ponderings. I have, at present, been reduced to typing with one hand only! I will resume the tale of Yeshi and the MEB brotherhood as soon as I am able, with apologies to those who have been enjoying it. I’d also like to request for prayers for healing for myself and Lorraine as we struggle through this very rough patch….
