Mrs. Nielson is shocked and appalled to announce the first novel by the pizza-faced little hellion who made her fifth period 8th grade English comp class the nerve-wracking spin through hell that it was.

Having just got my first book into print last year, I know a bit about what it takes to get that far. So of course, you also have my congratulations.

Oh man!  The book is only available on Kindle right now and I don't have one!  I just gave my iPad with Kindle to someone else a few days ago and they've already erased my stuff from it.  Damn Damn and double Damn!!

Y'all rock.  Don't try to deny it!


Squish: paperback version is available on Amazon (website link might be lagging behind, since they cranked out the e-book version a couple weeks ahead of the hard copies).


Heaven help us, they set me up with a blog.  Never blogged before (you know...aside from those galumphing retaining walls of space-filling text that typically precede my episode reviews), so y'all better believe I'm playing this by ear!

You are on the kiddie blogging platform dear, Wordpress is for grown ups.  That's okay though unless you are actually going to be using that blog, Blogspot is okay.  I'll do a post a little later to send you some traffic.

Can't say that I am.  To the best of my knowledge, his name is PUBLIC DOMAIN PHOTO #453,234,785.4.  Legendary 21% tipper, but you better be prepared to sit and listen to him prattle on about his car all night.

Zombies....... Dragqueens?  Does that mean the walking dead are fashionable?

Polaraoids......feet?  Does someone have a foot fetish?

Wow! That is great Bilbo!  Congratulations!   I was working on a book for several months a few years back and have since put it to the side.  It is sitting in my virtual memory somewhere....  Now where did I put that?........hmm....

Super pressed for time at the moment, but I just wanted to duck my head in and tell the whole jolly lot of ya how much I appreciate your kind words.

The feedback and support that I've received from my fellow Lexxians over the years has been a real driving force for me.  When I've got a little more time to sit and collect my thoughts into their customary Monopoly thimble, I'll attempt to put into words just how appreciative I am.

For the time being: from now until the Lexx blows us to kingdom come, if I should happen to cross paths with any one of ya, I'm buying you ice cream!*


































*Limit one per customer.  After that I start a tab, charge interest, and start doling out assignments to debt collectors (Not what you think!  The debt collectors are actually adorable, underprivileged kindergarteners.  You'll have little choice but to pay up, because you'll feel like a big meanie if you turn them away.  It's the reason why I always make sure and hang a "DECEASED" sign on my door when the Girl Scouts are out in force.  Otherwise, I'd wind up rocketing to the poor house in a shuttlecraft made entirely out of thin mint boxes.)

I finished the book this morning and I absolutely LOVED it!  I'm madly in love with Chad Savage's ethics and personality.

I couldn't help thinking that this is a book my ex's grandmother would have loved. She passed away sitting in her recliner watching WWF. No kidding.


Awesome storytelling Bilbo!

Glad you liked it, Chess!  You sprinted through that phonemic sand pit faster than my agent did!


Now then, if I might address the whole class:

HOW IN NORTH CENTRAL TARNATION ARE Y'ALL GETTING YOUR COPIES SO FAST?!?  It was something like three weeks between the time they dropped my freebies in the mail and when I actually got them! (If you read my 4.22 review, you can tell I was fighting like crazy to keep from spilling the beans [pun divinely inspired] in my little ode to Lex G.)

Bilbo dear,

I've found that Amazon can be inhumanly speedy with its deliveries sometimes.  There was once a time that the book I'd ordered showed up at my door the day BEFORE it was released.  If other Lexxians are using other sources, then they also must be extremely efficient. 

I wish the explanation was something like telekinesis or teleportation but, to my knowledge, none of us have mastered those concepts yet.

*Ahem* If I may offer an explanation on the speedy shipping...
Amazon's vendor contracts stipulate 2 things:

1. That no matter the size of the object in question (Book, movie, etc)or where it's going, they can only charge $3.00 to ship it.
2. The Standard shipping required is first class,(unless you want overnight) and they have a limited time to fulfill the order, hence the expedited shipping speed.

Don't get me wrong, it's not that I doubt you, it's just that I'd have a much easier time taking your statement at face value if you were to smite something.

My review of Bilbo's book is up at Amazon !!!

I fondly remember my introduction to the sport of wrestling in the 60's, watching Lord Blears smashing chairs over the head of Handsome Johnny Berand, Billy White Wolf doing his War dance in the ring, complete with warpaint and headress, even the time I absconded with the leather biker vest that one wrestler stupidly tossed into my lap at ringside. Only the begging of my friends convinced me to return the colors to the sobbing participant the following week, and instead of the scolding I expected, I got a signed photo. I remember watching the Von Erich clan dominate the sport before the Spawn of Satan (you know who)took over the sport and turned it into 'Big Bizness', then watched with horror as each of the boys was cut down years before their time.
I only bring this up in an effort to describe the nostalgic feeling I got while reading Billy Duncan's remarkable work, detailing the experiences of one Chad Savage, a newcomer to the sport, with a hysterical yet troubling look at the seamy and seedy underbelly of minor-league Pro wrestling. There were quite a few revelations regarding some of the practices, and some expected descriptions of the behind-the-scenes match maneuvering, but what is truly remarkable is the fleshing out of the main character, who wants desperately to contribute to this world in spite of his better judgement. His attempt to become the subversive element in a sport which in itself is pretty subversive, has some unexpected consequences, and when our hero Chad, opens his next Christmas present to find a full Blue Cross policy, and joyfully wipes a tear from his eye, you can rest assured we will have some new adventures to look forward to.
So if you want to experience something totally original, whether you're a wrestling fan or not, make a point to read Billy's new book, I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of him.
