Shortly before Half-Life 2: Episode 2's 10th anniversary, the series' writer Marc Laidlaw has posted what appears to be one possible plot for Half-Life 2: Episode 3 .

Laidlaw posted "Epistle 3" to his personal website, a letter written from the first-person perspective of "Gertie Freemont" about her adventures with "Alex Vaunt," in what appears to be a gender-swapped version of events following Half-Life: Episode 2 and its cliffhanger ending. He made sure to note, however, on his Twitter that this piece is by no means official to Half-Life's story and is "fanfic," as far as he is concerned.

"I hope this letter finds you well. I can hear your complaint already, 'Gertie Fremont, we have not heard from you in ages,'" the letter begins, noting that past events will even be referred to as "Epistle 2" in a clear nod to the last official Half-Life episode.

“Half Life of a Dream” on view at SFMOMA through October 5, was comprised of a selection from the Vicki and Kent Logan collection of contemporary Chinese art, perhaps the most important collection of its kind in the United States. Many of the pieces presented on this occasion were donated by the Logans over the past few years to the Denver Art Museum and SFMOMA.

This curatorial project seeks to delve into the psyche and heart of post-Maoist China, taking a key element as its pivotal theme: the realization of individual dreams and goals in juxtaposition to the collective social plan advocated by the State. The assembled artists reveal a wide spectrum of responses to the Nation’s unified plan. The exhibition reflects on unresolved personal trauma hidden behind the still latent utopia of Chinese daily life.
