2002 and 2006 were both good years, and resurgences of LNHiness that
subsequently died down.  So far, tho, the current burst of activity seems
to have a bit more momentum.

It's weird that we had so many other imprints prospering, but when the LNH
started revving up again, several of them dropped off.  Scott's still going
strong, though, which is heartening, and we've been getting excellent stuff
from Dave all across the board.

It's true.  And I've dropped insults on Jesse in passing in the past, I
know, but I take them all back.  He's no class act, but he's definitely an
interesting writer.

Heck, why wait?  Let's do it right now!

Agreed. 100% agreed.
