This book was made possible by the tremendous creative input—not just constructive criticism, but actual character and plot development ideas—of a great many people. The book owes much of its quirkiness to, most especially, contributors Larry Johns, Alice Sawyer, Jessica Johns, and Rebekah DeWitz. Equally important, because they kept me going and set necessary fires under my rear end, were my ragtag group of guinea pig reviewers and critics. The undisputed leader of this thoughtful assemblage has been Al Bethune, but I owe a great debt of gratitude also to Steve Daniels, Norma Vorce, Valerie Johns and the above-mentioned contributors. Lastly, I’d like to acknowledge the contribution of (but not to thank) the criminal that crushed my skull in a couple of years ago, effectively quashing the abstruse left half of my brain and giving a much-welcomed rebirth to the creative right half.
