  1. Darin Kennedy owes my Jr. High english teacher a note of thanks. Bought and can’t wait to see where this goes.

    Hope that oxcart misses the old man’s legs this time.


  2. Oor Wombat is clearly the best, even if she doesn’t win. Made the ballot with a kid’s book! Against all that grimdark.

  3. Hee! It’s an honor to be nominated of course, but yeah, that cover does look a little out of place there, doesn’t it?
