    I see I have a lot of catching up to do as far as your obvious talent goes. I bought, read and finished Norse Code today pretty much all in one setting. There are too many set ups to one liners in the story even to begin to pick a favorite though “Can I interest you in the rest of my muffin?” is got to be up there. I think your story would do well as a movie or anime though it is not as silly as Erik the Viking. I’ll definitely give it a good review on Amazon and the Black Library forums. And I’ll also send it on to C.L.Werner as I think he might enjoy it though it’ll be awhile before he can get to it. He’s got two projects going and a huge “to read pile”. Anyway I hope you get something else into novelized form soon. The Osteomancer’s Son sounds interesting think I’ll check that out next.

    Hey, Earl, I’m really happy you enjoyed Norse Code. Thanks for taking the time and effort to let me know, and I hope you enjoy Osteomancer’s Son as well. Cheers!
