The gift of giving

There was a little announcement from Warren Ellis in his forum this week:

Sometime next week I am going to go to sleep for about a week, and then do Xmas and New Year. It is unlikely that I will be around here much.

Its a very nice and succinct fib as the writer of such titles as SUPERGOD, TRANSMETROPOLITAN and PLANETARY will be taking time off from his busy schedule to dress up as Father Christmas, sing Christmas carols around town and give toys to orphans. Such a nice man.
