Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Carl. The main news for me was rather sad: We lost Andrew Hackard. You can read about that here.

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Rose. The news:

• I signed off on final PDFs of two items for the GURPS 2021 PDF Challenge.

• I am presently carrying out the production review of another PDF for the GURPS 2021 PDF Challenge.

• Yet we still had time to plan a couple of initiatives that have nothing to do with the above four entries . . .

• Oh, and I updated the GURPS News for May.

That was certainly a week!
