My feelings for Rebecca Watson are on record. So I need go no further there.

Except she has magnified them even more by very glowingly reviewing my book, Death from the Skies!

Rebecca posing with the book.  Nice, but I like this one better.

Come to think of it, given the number of cosmic events that can irradiate the Earth to the point of vaporization, "glowing" reviews should be common.

The only problem with Rebecca's review is she complains about my puns. The thing is, I know she secretly loves them, but cannot bring herself to admit it, at least in public. C'mon, Rebecca: fess up. Or... maybe it's because she's a vegetarian, and the book is meteor than she's used to.

Anyway, it's a great review. Thanks, RW!

Oh-- I'm hearing stories that the book is already appearing on bookshelves, and is being shipped by online stores. So what are you waiting for?
