Everybody Needs a Vacation

IMG_2509.JPG“The water was that clear turquoise color you get with a white sand bottom. I had never seen such a place. I wanted to take off all my clothes and never wear them again,” wrote Hunter S. Thompson about a particularly beautiful stretch of Puerto Rico, reminding us that everyone, from publishing folks to crazed journalists, needs a vacation.

Starting this afternoon, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog is leaving for a week-long vacation. He will return relaxed and refreshed on Monday, October 26, along with more unexpected publishing news, tech-savvy author interviews, Darwinian writing advice, and good old fashioned Apple Tablet speculation.

If you have any breaking news in the next week, you can still email GalleyCat your tips. Our senior editor Ron Hogan will hold down the GalleyCat fort next week, both on the site and on Twitter.
