Ok, I've calmed down a bit now (and b-r-e-a-t-h-e!) I'm in quite remarkable company here and I'm really looking forward to reading everyone's work. Congratulations, especially to Donna, up there at the top of the flag pole.

A question for the Cave Dwellers: What's the rough ETA for the release of the anthology. I'd like to buy several as gifts.
