Hector Avalos will respond to Helmut Koester

Hector Avalos left this message in the comments on my last post, bringing attention to Helmut Koester's criticism of Avalos in the recent edition of BAR.
Hello, Prof. DeConick,
I plan to respond to Dr. Koester quite thoroughly in an upcoming issue of BAR.

If BAR does not publish it, I will use a venue in the blogosphere that will be easily accessible to those interested.
