Week of January 8th:

Yet another big week at the Foundation, with rock stars, animals, and debates about the distribution of borscht (it's true what they say - anything can be interesting with the right execution). It was a great week for tales too, with everything from a heartfelt letter from Kondraki to a crime thriller about the Chicago Spirit and a lot of good stuff in between.
