This makes me burst with pride for you all afresh. This really hard thing you have done (on so many levels: as a personal thing, a research thing, and a writing thing) is being heard and will truly help people understand and go forward with eyes wide open. <3

+Lizzie Stark I haven't had problems with chairs up against the wall usually. It depends on the size of the space, I think. In much smaller spaces it's not practical to put all the furniture in the middle of the room because then people won't mingle around the space, they get trapped between clusters of chairs. When I'm running a 8 to 12 person game in a small space I generally try to cluster the furniture on the walls and keep the middle of the space empty. (Sometimes people will wedge themselves in corners, but it's much less of a problem than the table thing.)

Aw. It's probably because right now the book is only in US/Canadian release. Sorry 'bout that!

Angelina Jolie has her ovaries out to lower her high risk of ovarian cancer, a disease that kills more than 50% of women diagnosed. 

You can read more about Jolie's condition, including her impact on BRCA patients, in my book PANDORA'S DNA. The eBook version is on sale for $0.99 between today and Friday from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Google, and Kobo.
