Stan Law A belated thanks for choosing me to be among your friends, Jerry. It may interest you that my book Marvin Clark—In Search of Freedom in now a matching FREE download on Amazon Kindle. This is not SF, but you might be well amused. Enjoy it while you can. (A little review on Amazon wouldn't hurt either!)

I blame the fact that I tried to read it for the first time when I was already well into being a grown up. :) Perhaps if I'd read it as a child, I'd have liked it better. I found it stuffy and overblown. But, that's me. :)

Alan Baxter Hi Angela

You've certainly got an interesting career going on - I have friends that would kill for your job!

I noticed you only gave 1 star to The Hobbit. Why was that? You must be the only person I know that doesn't like it. :)
