Update information

A Publication Two Years in the Making!

But first, a quick mention of recently added material right here: The Sheaffer Pop has been added to the page for the Sheaffer Award… because there might be some minor differences, but I can’t shake the sense that it is just a renaming; An extremely elderly No. 16 S.F. has been added to the gang …

Apparently the Mountain Will Come to Us

First, to address the previous news item here: That is sufficient to get the hub happening, and hooray!  However, there is room for more, so if you are going to be within striking distance of here on 21 September and want to attend (and get free Pelikan stuff!), then go to this site and sign …

Thumping a Tub for a Pelikan Hub

Pelikan Hubs registrations are open, and I’m giddy about it, because there is a move afoot to have a hub happen right here in my own home town, Regina.  I am, therefore, reproducing almost the entirety of a blog-entry I just posted on the topic, because why should you waste time clicking on this link …

Spring Cleaning

I suddenly find I have a lot updates to make.  Until I get a better grip on Conway-Stewarts both old and new, though, let’s be content with the following: In my very own hands, there’s a green shadow-wave sub-deb Vacumatic which allows a small expansion of that brimming page. The same dear friend also gave …

The Clinic Came Back

Yes, once again, just in time for a long weekend when everyone is out of town… oh, dear. Well, let’s hope not, because me and my pen-sensitive fingers will be available for free massages* at Paper Umbrella, which is found at 2724 13th Avenue in Regina, which is in Saskatchewan, which is in Canada, between …

Extruding from Another Dimension!

The first item in this entry has very little to do with pens, apart from having emerged into the world from the end of one.  A story of mine, “Free Balloons for All Good Children,” had been posted on Pseudopod, one of the great names in horror podcasting (and I’m not just saying that because …

A Change of Face

I have changed the theme of the site for the moment to one which is… ugly, to be frank.  However, it has the charm of allowing all the pull-down menus to work properly.  Before I explain what’s happening in that department, I will also quickly mention a new page for a jolly interesting new pen …

The Patient is Ambulatory

Things are mostly back to where they should be here, which the absence of The Apocalypse Announcement on the opening page probably tipped you off to.  I still have to go through the news posts like this one and eliminate a quantity of mysteriously-appeared back-slashes (and the link-breaking they bring with them) but since all that is …

Minor Catastrophe

Something went wrong with my Word Press set up; anyone who has been trying to visit here since 20 February has likely been seeing a perfectly blank screen. Well… I SORT OF fixed it. I initially had a small attack of the marthambles when it looked like all the content had evaporated. This is not …

Sic Semper Taranis

Well, I appear to have undone the damage done by Jerk MacJerk of Clan MacCreep, but I’m still trying to sort out the damage done by the WordPress update it required.  For example, I’ve just noticed that what used to produce a different coloured background text box now doesn’t, so there are several pages with …
