In the end, everybody dies and then Spacejock wakes up and realizes Bobby Ewing was only having another one of his dreams.

No, I'm not telling you if Clyde and Albion get to stay! You've got to read the book! No crib notes allowed!

But, but, besides their wanting to..well you know...when Hal gets...you know...they might be a good fit for the oddness of it all.

I'd like to see them again. Who knows? There are already three sequels.

You love the ebook or the ease of buying straight from the author? I was pleasantly surprised how simple and smooth the transaction was. Good to know buying straight from the author that all the proceeds go to them

I finished the book the other day. I quite enjoyed it, found it a fun read. I'll be buying the next 3 in the series definitely!!!!

I think you are doing it wrong. If you buy book #2 (or 3 or 4) then you get book #1 for free.

Edit:
I was mistaken. It appears that offer is no longer posted on his site. When I bought the book right after the poll closed, he gave Book 1 away if you bought any other book. Still, for 2 bucks it's a steal.

Yes, being able to support the author directly! And no DRM!

Have not started the book other than reading the first few pages of the sample.

Personally, I'm glad i took advantage of it. I'm finding book 2 - Second Course to be funnier than the first one.

I was actually going to wait until after the Book Club discussion, but, the other book I'm reading is so racy, I decided I needed a change of pace.
