The guest has now been announced as being Chris Carter from X-files. He
will also be presenting Harlan with something from the Guiness Book of
Records, since Harlan has done this kind of event more than any other

I'm working and have been working on a number of other, non-B5 projects (such
as the short story that just came out in a mystery anthology), but they're all
long-term projects that proceed at a page or two a day, as I have time for
them.  There's a novel, a short story collection, a play, other stuff...but the
show has to come first, so it'll be a while before anything happens to them.
