  1. Well, that was a bit short — kind of a tease, really…

    By the way, if you’ve seen the youtube of Bill O’Reilly going ballistic on the set of Inside Edition, check out this homage (not safe for work). Kind of a Nine Inch Nails O’Reilly…

  2. John, I just discovered your books and your blog, and am recommending both of them to everyone I know. If you like to read absolutely gushing reviews, check out my post for today at necromancyneverpays.blogspot.com.
