Happy New Year and the January 2008 Issue of Clarkesworld

Happy New Year! I’m so glad to see the end of 2007. Kicked off the new year by watching the ball drop on TV with Lisa and the kids. They actually made it to midnight, but it seems like they crashed when they hit the pillow a few minutes ago. If we could only bottle that.

Because I’m nuts, I just spent a few minutes making the new issue of Clarkesworld Magazine live. It’s a short one, but a fun one. Enjoy!
