This month's Heinlein Society email newsletter is a few days late. On the 7th - the monthy target date - our dear Managing Editor, Sheba, Queen of (see photo below), was ill and at an emergency veterinary clinic. We know Heinleiners will understand that the health and well-being of a Junior Citizen (actually senior household member!) is tantamount.

We are pleased to report Sheba, Queen of, is improving and out of danger.
Queen of
