...okay, with the sappy stuff out of the way, we've got a treat for lovers of the written word. As you may know, Ari Marmell's novel Agents of Artifice, the first planeswalker novel, will be released on January 27, 2009 (its ISBN is 978-0786951345 if you want to order it!). It stars Jace Beleren, Liliana Vess, and Tezzeret the Seeker.
