I saw this at a local Border's and judging from the author bio, it's the same Lyons. I found it ironic that two of my favorite HB writers from the 80's, both missing in action for way too long, are together. I'm glad to see Lyons writing again, but wish he'd give us another Asch. Bob Randisi mentioned earlier this year that Lyons seemed to be disillusioned by the whole publishing racket and even resigned his PWA membership. Petrievich, I heard, was making money in Hollywood.
