Thankfulness and giving it

I'm not going to make a huge deal about this, because I'm a touch cynical about the looming hegemony of The Holidays(tm). But it is that time of year, and my pretending otherwise is a missed opportunity to be gracious and all that. So on reflection, the two things we have most to be thankful about at Tachyon are:

1) Avoiding the catastrophic loss of our entire operation. A pox on careless construction workers and their errant cigarette butts, and all due praise to the fantastic (and yes, sexy) San Francisco Fire Department. We're all OK, the books are all OK, but we were very lucky.

2) The folks we work with. I fear that a laundry list is impersonal, so I'll simply give a heartfelt thanks to all of you. It takes a village to raise a book, especially an independent press book. Our village is simply the best; we couldn't ask for more from them.

So have a happy Thanksgiving, dammit. Remember that nothing you eat on a holiday has any calories. It's a scientific fact.
