Compliments of the season

I would imagine compliments of the season might include "That's an impressive Yule log" and "Your beard is looking particularly fluffy and white" and "Nice manger".

Anyway, I'm off to Christmas-land (by way of my wife's birthday-land, which happens on Christmas Eve) so I just wanted to wish everyone who stops by here a smashing Christmas and a splendid New Year, and I hope Santa brings you what you wanted.

Which reminds me, my daughter once sang (before she knew the real words) "Santa baby, put a sabre under the tree for me."

Pah rappa pum pum, everyone.

You know, I’ve heard so many spin-offs of Christmas songs I can no longer remember the original words? Merry Christmas to you as well, may all your presents be sock free.

Happy Annual Gift Day, Mr. Abnett. May all your dice rolls be sixes.

Except your Leadership Tests.

Hello!
I just found this blog (thanks to All the Rage) and am very happy about it.
It seems that you have some troubles finding subjects that you think justifie an entry.
Well, perhaps, you can talk a little about your past work on Legion, Resurrection Man, Icandy,Majestic, nova...
I hope that you are the writer of the new Nova ongoing coming! (Was it confirmed?)
Well, happy new year!

Oh, and I just wanted to let you know that I wrote a 3page article about your fantastic work on Resurection Man in a famous french fanzine about comics called Scarce. Let me know if you want to have a copy of it by mail or postage. But it's all written in french so i don't know if you or anybody near you can read it.

Thanks for all those past (and I hope futures) hours of lecture!

Well Happy Christmas and a cracking new year to you Mr. Abnett, and to the Abnett clan.

I just wanted to say that I got your latest Ghosts book ( Armour of contempt.) and once again I am left wanting more more more. Thank you for this collection of work and I do so hope that there will be many more to come.

I was wondering on a side note, what books do you like to read, when relaxing. And what books do you read, if any, to get background or inspiration for the Ghost books?

BTW your other books are damn fine too.

Happy New Year, Mister Dan Abnett, sir!

I hope you had a most excellent Holiday Season and I look forward to more of the Awesome you are going to most certainly dish out in 2007.

Oh, and I -love- the new 40k comic. Nice work (to you and Mr. Edginton both).

Cheers!
Steve
