Tor is reshuffling its offices in the Flatiron Building. We’re about to be moved from the 14th to the 19th floor for some weeks, after which we’ll be moved to the 14th and part of the 13th floor. Marketing, Promotion, and Publicity will be getting the new territory.
The process is enough to give you nightmares about drowning in oceans of paper. In the meantime, if I may ask Making Light’s readers a hypothetical question:
Suppose that in a drawer of the desk used by the slush-opening-and-logging interns, one were to come upon a sheaf of International Reply Coupons more than two inches thick. The coupons are in two sizes, one about half the size of the other, and hail from everywhere from Brampton to Botswana.
What would happen if one were to present such a very large sheaf of coupons at one’s local post office? Would they deny all knowledge of them? Tell the bearer to bring them back on Annual Coupon Redemption Day? Demand that they be sorted by date or size or country, or at least counted? Declare that some of them have expired? Unflinchingly offer to swap the lot of them for U.S. postage stamps?
Inquiring minds need to know.
