The world lost an incredible mother, wife, daughter, friend, attorney, underprivileged advocate, and community member suddenly and unexpectedly on October 16, 2013.

Beware of Scott Sigler

I think that the notorious author Scott Sigler has been working too hard on his latest book, Infested, which will be coming out in 2008. He emailed me some bizarre, nearly incoherent message that revolved around the estimated 1.5 - 2 million Americans who have a form of lupus. Scott said that in lupus the immune system cannot tell the difference between foreign substances and its own cells and tissues. The immune system then makes antibodies directed against itself. These antibodies -- called "auto-antibodies" -- cause inflammation, pain and damage in various parts of the body. Scott sounded pretty mad about the whole thing. Honestly, it was more than a little scary. That guy is weird.

Here's the really scary part. This morning, when I woke up, the chicken scissors were missing from my kitchen. I'm afraid that this may be part of Scott's misguided plan to stop the spread of lupus. Someone tell Scott he's been working too hard on his horror novel Infested--Chicken scissors cannot cure lupus! Only donating to the Lupus Foundation of America will help!

To be continued...

So... where's the rest?

I'm anxiously awaiting the return of your chicken scissors. I'm sure once Scott's done incorporating them into the novel, they'll find their way back to you.
