Lest I resort to actually looking things up, I will pull this out of the hindquarters of my brain. If I recall correctly (and I seldom do) Reza Aslan is the author of "No God but God", a book about modern Islam (maybe focussing on radical Islam?). Been on the Daily Show once or twice.

We're planning to go on Sunday. Not sure exactly when, but we'll be hitting the childrens areas and seeing how much of the rest we can get away with.

If you see David Brin, tell him that Enigma wants a signed copy of Tribes, now that it's finally being published (I would imagine not at all resembilg what we playtested lo those many years ago. Jerky Weather anyone?)
