You're forgiven. Actually, I'm myself missing the deadline of my Willeford essay for the Finnish Whodunit Society's magazine. But as a sort of editor-in-chief myself, I should say that reminder should be fairly easy to drop. Maybe they didn't want Willeford there in the first place.

Have you written your piece? I think there are many of us here who would like to see it. If possible, you could send it to the list.
