The P-Plan Diet
The Cabal
In a blatant attempt to write a best seller, we reveal our secret diet tips for the first time.

Threats appear to work, and we have a bumper crop of locs this time despite Dr Plokta busily wielding the Blue Pencil of Doom.

Scenes From an Eclipse
Alison Scott
Well, you didn't listen, and Ploktaroth ate the sun. But since you were good and got Plokta its Hugo nomination, he's put it back. For the time being.
