Dasvidaniya!

Wolfman's T-shirt of the Day.  


On my recent trip to Russia, i got a tour of Star City, the top secret Russian cosmonaut training facility.  I went for a ride in the the world's largest centrifuge,  Didn't barf!  Also didn't go 1/100th the speed a cosmonaut would have gone.  Did the flight simulator.  Crashed every time.  Saw the underwater facility they use to simulate weightlessness. 

And got this cool T-shirt and really warm Russian Army hat. 

I was there at the invitation of the head of the Russian cosmonaut training program.  He was a big fan of my writing.  Not the Roger Rabbit stuff.  He didn't know about that.  He knew me as a science fiction writer.  His favorites were Killerbowl and The Resurrectionist.  Both soon to be major motion pictures.  So he'll be a happy Russian.
