Work has begun on the 2004 edition of the Almanac. To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure if I was going to do it again this year. I nearly killed myself doing the last one. This time we'll have a talented team of elves helping, led by our own Megan Morrone, so I might survive the process. (We'll let Megan decide whether writing a book is more or less work than having a baby.) Expect delivery in early September. There won't be any need for an authorcam this summer - unless Megan decides to share her agony - but I am talking with Que about doing another series of books for them, so stay tuned.
