I had the pleasure of editing this book--and totally loved it! On the surface, it starts out funny, but it has a refreshing depth that helps the story resonate long after you've put it down.

“I'm fine with death. I've dealt out more than my share. It's the act of dyin' that bothers me.”

“A life's meaning comes not from the manner in which one dies, but in the manner in which one lives.”
Mike Kalmbach, The Caldarian Conflict

"Mum!" said Fred as though he'd only just spotted her and seizing her hand too. "How really corking to see you-”
