That's great! I've been thinking about him (hard not to, since he watches us from the spines of his books in the TV room), and I've been wondering what's up.

I used to have a decade's worth of Roger's annual guides staring at me from a shelf as well. Unfortunately, they were a casualty of the cross-continental move.

The good news is that the University of Chicago Press recently published a collection of some of Roger's best work in one volume called Awake in the Dark. I highly recommend it.
