So much for day light at the end of the tunnel.
Critters, Creatures, and Denizens is written, but the art is only 85% complete... and the artist working on the project has injured himself. It is severe and we here at CP are praying and sending good thoughts to him and his family right now. I'm not entirely sure what will happen now, but I'm left without cover art, and many of the fancy borders, and even a few critters. I think I can cobble together the covers from old artwork that hit the editing room floor, but I think I'm just going to have to pull the stuff without art from the book and hope for the best with a first edition.
