Welcome to the Playpen, our space for ferrety banter and whimsical snippets of things that aren't quite long enough for articles (although they might be) but that caught your eye anyway.

So sorry to hear about Gene Wolfe, Arthur. I still haven't gotten around to checking out his stuff, other than one short story, and a novel I read like, a chapter or two of, at most; maybe someday, though.

Also, yay for Discord channel! Thanks.

In other news, I added a Discord for my blogs, check it out.

GENE WOLFE DIED YESTERDAY. Given how much energy I put into championing his work here in the early days of Ferretbrain, I almost feel responsible. But not responsible enough to cancel the Great Deletion.

Yes, a Discord would be of interest to me as well.

Oh, it's going!
I guess all things pass...
Ferretbrain was one of my favourite places to go on the internet, long long ago. I guess I changed, the internet changed, life became more complicated... but I do miss those days. My thanks to everyone who contributed to the site over the years. And my apologies if I was ever a jerk to anyone here...

Catching this even more belatedly, but I would be interested in participating in a Discord channel also.

... Catching this belatedly: A dedicated Discord channel sounds like a great idea to me. I like the idea of holding more Playpen style conversations elsewhere, if enough folks would be into that.

I'd definitely check it out, though no promises as to regular activity.

Still, a hub for your two blogs would be more convenient than just checking the two different sites!
