Dear tyrant

Congratulations on another great read. I really, really like the kids in this one.

Congratulations! It was a great book. Though I'm not sure whether to thank you for this release or not - I stayed up way too long reading the story, despite having read it in earlier forms at least twice before - and I'm yawning my way through the work day.

And if you BUY NOW or read with KU you also get a sample from Xen Marooned to enjoy.

Which was rather mean of me, since I have at least two books ahead of it in the Publication lineup.

OK, let's after an After Action discussion by Ra'd and Nighthawk of Children v. kidnappers with suggestions for improved tactics.

"Just kill them. What's to discuss?"

"Ra'd! Dad is trying to keep the peace and stop wars! I mean, I suppose if the kids hadn't solved the problem before he even got there, it would have played out differently. But really, the poor stupid things are going to have to live with the knowledge that they got beat by a bunch of kids who didn't have a bit of experience, and just creamed them in minutes."

"He still ought to have killed them."

It's not like Ra'd is wrong (IMAO), it's just that the unintended consequences would've splashed over on the kids too.

And after thinking about, he'd probably confront Xen.

"You need to stop training just anyone in magic. Think! If either of those two Discordians had known how to slice . . . how many of your kids would have died yesterday in that confrontation?"

Being Ra'd, might he not go the other way & suggest the kids need some real self-defence training?

Well, they're already getting martial arts every morning, and being taught how to shield. Arno and Ryol (and possibly some of the others) are well trained with firearms.

Just wondering...

Amazon.com is telling me the price is $5.02? Which seems like a weird price, unless they are playing games with the exchange rate (yes, I pay them in American dollars from an American bank, but they know where I live, and this sometimes confuses them).

$0.03 off is odd. Back and forth rounding errors off the US price?

Okay. $4.99... no idea why Amazon is playing with it, but that’s not too far off. Thanks!
