I hope you are as thrilled as I am. I do so love REM's artwork and I have confidence in her as I believe both the previous volumes have shown how good her voice meshes with mine.
The print release is currently scheduled for November 2013. Although that date subject to change if REM needs more time. We want beautiful drawings and are willing to wait.
In the interim, the chapters are serialized by subscription, online in Yen Plus
as before. So if you can’t wait and want to get it in bite size segments (the way I do) that's how to do it.GAIL'S DAILY DOSEYour Moment of Parasol . . .Your Infusion of Cute . . .Chickopolis via FBYour Tisane of Smart . . .Living Off the Grid via FB

Beth sent me this via Goodreads
A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement.
He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.
'Al-Gebra is a problem for us', the Attorney General said. 'They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.' They use secret code names like "X" and "Y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns" but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, "There are 3 sides to every triangle."
NOTE - Beth's (retired) teacher friend replied to the above with this come back:
The solution to this (in)fraction is plane and solid, requiring simply the right angle.
