Phil and Kaja Foglio are the authors of (among many other things) the fantastic Girl Genius comic series.
They also recently began a series of Girl Genius novels. Now those novels have run into one of those legal morasses that have snared other authors in the past. Fortunately, the novels are only part of their output–I’ve heard that some authors have had their entire life’s work hung out to dry in legal snags like this–but it’s no less painful for that.
Best of luck to them–I’m one of their biggest fans. You can read the whole online comic series (so far) here. You’re not doing anything else for next week or so, are you? And buy their books! Check out the great Christopher Lee photo on their blog post, too.
