Hmmm. My son-in-law brews his own, lives in Santa Cruz, and is a member of Tonmo. He never posts, but he is a member. One year he brought a case of "Angry Squid Ale" when he came for Christmas. I don't drink beer, but by all accounts it was magnificent. I'm not at all sure I could convince him to donate a couple of cases to a tonomocon, but it would be worth a try. He can only make small quantities at a time, and he can't sell it, just give it away for tastings.

It wouldn't cost us a fortune to then have like 250 labels printed, right? Or 500, if Brian (Wells) would show up, or 1250 if I were there as well? Or 2500 in case a certain teuthologist would join the fray?

Don't know if you saw this one, but this thread is certainly the place for it -- the next to last iteration of the winged crustacean:

Shadow Out of Time

Here's a sketch for an upcoming piece, showing the Great Race of Earth in Permian/Triassic times, working in their libraries.

I love that their libraries have actual books with actual pages! None of this online stuff. (Yes I know there's lots of great stuff online, and I read and research online all the time, but nothing beats holding a book in your hands and turning real, not virtual pages,) Yeah, I'm old. :old: sigh......

I had to laugh at Sharon's comment as mine is more, "why would they have to touch anything in a futuristic, electronic library?"

Yes, but the Great Race existed in the PreCambrian era, I do believe...the silicon chip wasn't invented yet.

I believe the story's protagonist estimates Permian-Triassic Boundary as approximate era when he was kept captive. But still no silicon chips. Odd, since they had aintigravity vehicles, submarines, and soul transfer technology.

Don't we all? Yep, looking through the story, you are correct about the timeline.

Ah well, I can't be right all the time !

That would be the ocean visible outside, with some strange roiling disturbance in the water, and ferns and unwholesome-looking plants waving their crowns in the fresh sea breeze.
