Normal service will be resumed presently. There's some more posting on that whole function of narrative malarky. I'll also try and post some bletherings about my trip to Plzen. In the meantime, Jeff VanderMeer has this report with a (potentially mind-scarring) picture of meself resplendant in all my glory as -- as Jeff dubs it -- the Beer Messiah. You might laugh. You might cry. You might just lose yer lunch.
