Today we welcome our 500th member at the message board. Woohoo! Warm welcome to all the newbies. And the rest of you lurkers out there, now's the best time to unlurk, with Explorer set to hit the shelves soon. You don't have to register, but it's free if you do.
As for Explorer, the word so far (from those fortunate few in the know) is that it's one heckuva read. For the rest of us, we'll have to wait in tortured frenzy until the 5th. I think I'm breaking out in a sweat just thinking about it.
The Shejidan chat was quite successful. A partial transcript has been posted at the Perplexed forum at the board. The whole transcript (or as much as we have of it) will hopefully be available soon.
Finally, the next deadline for Ribbons, the CJC journal, is coming up on November 15th. So if you have any articles, poetry, editorials, etc., that you'd like to share about CJC or her books, please send your written submissions to kelanth at firstname.lastname@example.org and picture submissions to me at email@example.com. Thanks!

The Agony of Waiting
Well, if you're like the rest of us, the wait for Explorer is probably killing you. Care to guess what it's going to be about? Come discuss your theories with us at our forums (specifically, at The Cherryh Grove). And if you're really a masochist, you can read hautdeserts' very cruel posts. (You'll see what I mean when you read them. Start with the Explorer Proof thread and then move on to the Oh Frabjous Day thread.)
Another reminder. This weekend is the Shejidan Live Chat. Sunday from 2PM-4PM EST (board time). You need Jabber Instant Messaging in order to chat. Further information can be found at the board.
Voting is closed on next year's titles for the monthly book club. I will have the official list posted shortly. Meanwhile, this month's book for discussion is Piers Anthony's On a Pale Horse. As usual, newbies are most welcome.
Finally, the next deadline for contributions to Ribbons, an on-line Cherryh magazine, is in November. If you wish to contribute, now's the time to start writing! And contributions to the fan art / downloads section of this site are always welcome. (Hint hint.)
