... for I have started a new blog. Worried that I might be driving our already select band of readers away in their droves with my constant references to war literature, I've decided to start a blog dedicated to that field of research. It's called Battle Lines, and you can read it here if you're that way inclined. In Gists and Piths news, we've got some excellent material lined up, including an interview with CJ Allen and a review of his new book, the spectacularly titled At the Oblivion Tea Rooms. As to what George has been plotting behind the scenes, God knows, but I'm sure he has some articles scheduled, too. Watch this space.
