Lois recent informed us that

> More GURPS news --

> February is probably overly optimistic; "late Spring" might not be.

Over on Baen's Bar, in her conference 'DixonsVixen' Mercedes 
Lackey has told us that the replacement artist is her husband 
Larry Dixon.
Luckily the broken arm sounds relatively minor.

While I've been busy and away from the Bar:
The previous artist resigned.
Steve [Jackson] contacted me.
I passed it on to Larry.
Larry sent an e-portfolio to Lois.
Lois said "yes".
Larry broke his arm (actually, two hairline fractures).
Larry sent Lois his portrait of Miles.
Lois said "very yes."
Larry is now finalizing contracts.
