March 29th, 2006: It's kind of short notice, but I'll be at Ad Astra this weekend, on Saturday, April 1st at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Toronto. That is their mini comics convention day! I won't be selling anything but I will be talking on panels - maybe even one about Women in Comics. There are other panels called things like "How To Buy A Sword", so I'll understand if you're more interested in that. (I personally think the best technique is to present yourself as a dude who just happens to have, you know, a passing interest in swords.) To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!

December 5th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe.
December 6th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January.
December 11th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL.
December 16th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option.
December 19th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)
