Welcome to The Gab! This is the start of what should be a weekly digest-type of newsletter, around and about the Outlander universe. Please let me know what you think about it, what you’d like to see, suggestions for items for the various “departments,” and all around hey theres!
Gotta Have News
The BIG news is that four weeks from Sunday, many of us will be gathering together to watch Episode 1 of Season 3!!! It’s been a LONG time, hasn’t it? Still remember what happened last season? I sure hope so! And from the showing of this hour that they did at San Diego Comic Con, I have no doubt that the wait will be worth it.

No new casting news this week. I’m sure there are several characters we haven’t heard anything about yet – and we don’t even know if they’ll be included in the season – but in the fullness of time, Ron & Company will provide.
The biggest GET THIS this week is that Season 2 Outlander trading cards came out! And they’re absolutely gorgeous. And there are so MANY of them! Including double autograph cards, there are 31 different versions; LOTS of beautiful wardrobe cards, and SO much more. If you had an “oops I forgot to order” moment, there is some stock left – while we here at threeifbyspace are sold out of card boxes and S2 binders, there are some dealers with product available. You’ll find a list of some dealers in the files section on Outlandish Trading on Facebook.
A box is too much for you? I’m selling individual packs – packs generally have 5 cards each, and they’re $7 for one, or 3 for $20 (you can buy more than three if you want), plus $3 shipping per order. Catch me on Facebook (Erin Adams Conrad), Twitter (@ErinConrad2) or by email (email@example.com) for more info.
Love this new t-shirt at the Outlander Store – Terry Dresbach’s beautiful sketches should be used more. This one was on one of the bottles of Lot 18 Outlander wine (long sold out). It may have to be on my have to get it list. Right now, it’s discounted to $21.21.
Another t-shirt you may want to get – and feel really good about getting – is this Be Kind shirt, promoted by Heughan’s Heughligans. At $24.99, it may not say Outlander on the shirt, but it sure says something about what the Outlander fandom is all about. Sam agrees. Make sure you take our poll at the bottom of The Gab and tell us how many t-shirts you already have!
Want to dress up your car? I found this really cute Sassenach car decal on Amazon. Only $16 (plus a ridiculously cheap 33 cents shipping?), it’s sure to cause a whole bunch of honking and waving by other Outlander fans who see you tootling down the street. Now if we could only find an orange Morris Minor to put it on.
He Said, She Said – Twitter Tweets
Just minutes ago, Diana revealed her new grandson’s name:
A fan came up with an original question and received an interesting answer:
Caitriona did a quick Twitter Q&A last Sunday – you can read the transcript of the entire thing here.
Sam saw something on Twitter that Starz posted, so he reposted… Starz pulled it down quickly (it was a S3 photo that we’re not ready to see!!).
Sorry for the spoiler you guys!!!
Mistakenly saw post that wasn’t official + reposted, I apologise.
❤️ you all!

And Caitriona laughed at him for it.
Hey @SamHeughan …… Numpty !!!!

There’s More to Life…
No, really, there is. I’m currently reading Daniel Silva’s most recent book in his excellent Gabriel Allon series, House of Spies.
And I’m catching up on Game of Thrones. So generally, being non-social. But this weekend, I’m planning to attend the Renaissance Faire with my Outlandish Chicago friends, so I will get out of the house for a little while at least.
You know we provide more than just Outlander stuff, right? Here are some posts from the past week that might interest you:
And look for all of our convention coverage from SDCC – Dirk Gently, Doctor Who, 12 Monkeys, Dark Matter, and so much more!
And Now For You!
