“…[W]onderful, imaginative, brilliant, and funny; a gift worth waiting for. Thank you! I really had a good time reading this. You took me on a ride I giddily enjoyed and provided surprises that I didn’t see coming. And you made all this wickedly humorous, too. Sir, you have a robust imagination, a keen intellect, and a bottomless talent. Thank you! With much gratitude.”
