There is no Combat! blog today, because my brother is in town and we must play a board game we invented involving wizards. While I summon cacodaemon, how about you read this fantastic essay by Tim Kreider from 2013? It is old, and we have linked to it before, but I agree with Sarah Aswell: it bears reading at least once a year. We’ll be back Monday, probably, unless we get trapped in some kind of soul prison.
