Hannah Ah the social awkwardness of laughing at death, I'm sure it will make for a rather interesting final meeting with the grim reaper. Thank you for the invite :)

Thanks, Dean! Pleasure making your acquaintance too. And, btw, I didn’t say I wasn’t afraid of Giant Beavers. In fact, I fear them very much. But we must confront our fears to overcome them... or to capture them.

Dean Blake Thanks for the friendship, man. You play the banjo, AND aren't afraid of beavers? I envy you.

Pleasure meeting a fellow author on GR. I read some of your blog - it's hilarious!

Thanks, Sam. Alas, no Giant Beavers (or even normal-sized ones) in my novel, but it does have tiny hairy people, blubbery giants, and other fantastically absurd nonsense. Hope you get the chance to read it.
