A Breather

I have been asked by my attorney to discontinue blogging for the forseeable future. As such, IHIDJGATE is and will remain in stasis.

I apologize profusely. There is nothing I can do about it.

I'll be back someday, but until then, please read the links over on the right on a regular basis. Those guys and girls are almost as smart and tasteful as me.

Well, it's never a good think when you are in a position needing to take an attorny's advice, so best of luck with all that.

You'll be missed - you offer an intersting opinion that's often contrary to many out there.

That's really sad to hear, I always enjoyed your blog. I don't know what legal trouble you've got in, but I hope it clears up soon and in your favour.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:58 AM) : 

I'm sorry to hear that. I knew there hadn't been much up lately but I thought you were just busy with other things.

I've really enjoyed reading your opinions on books, and checking out your recommendations, so you'd better believe I'll keep pestering you.

Plus, I just happen to have this offshore account that I'm having problems accessing, and since you're offering....

Hey William,

That's too bad, my friend, especially since we have very similar tastes in books.

You'll be missed, that goes without saying. Hopefully you'll continue to raise some hell on Westeros!;-)


Blogger Wyrm Publishing said ... (9:07 AM) : 

Sorry to hear that. I hope that whatever is going on is wrapped up quickly and in your favor.



Blogger Adam Whitehead said ... (1:56 PM) : 

Already looking forward to your return and a Black Man review! Take it easy,



Blogger Annie the Superfast Reader said ... (2:13 PM) : 

oh, darn! i just discovered you today & added you to my blogroll... good luck & hope you can come back soon--

Hey, I recently added a news widget from to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:07 AM) : 

Fuck this breather bullshit.

Read. Review. Write.

I'm groing impatient.
