Topic: January 4 in History!

1493 -- Christopher Columbus leaves the New World.
1884 -- The Fabian Society is founded in London.
1885 -- The first successful appendectomy is performed.
1958 -- Sputnik 1 falls to Earth from orbit.
2004 -- The rover Spirit lands successfully on Mars.
2011 -- Halo: Cryptum arrives in stores.

Loscon interupted my reading, but now I'm back in Ship, unravelling the mysteries of Hull Zero Three.

A minor factoid: I am now a Writer. My first story sale will appear in the winter edition of Rosebud Magazine, available at Borders and Barnes & Noble at the end of this year.

The thoughts and advice you share in this forum--and the opportunity to see my words somewhere other than in my head here--played a substantial role in this small victory, and I thank you for that.

Best,
Bill
