OF NECESSITY this will have to be a quick note. You haven't experienced reality in the raw until you've lost your balance and become wedged face down between a toilet and a sink cabinet for a half an hour, partly paralyzed and unable to move your lower body until the EMT's come to the rescue. Such a highly unlikely event happened to us recently, which should explain why there won't be as many ONTOS postings in the near future, our time at the keyboard being severely limited. But we're not closing up shop just yet. The website analytics tell us that ONTOS has a large and faithful audience, some going back to the very beginning of the weblog, and we're extremely grateful to you, as well as you newcomers, for sticking with us. We'll continue doing our randomized Internet search for the good, the bad, and the ugly in SFF and/or crime fiction. Thanks to all of you.
