Hell, you can drop my name any time, especially when what you have to say is that I am not a mysoginistic reprobate. (That may be the nicest thing anyone's ever said about me.)

The first person who did seems to have. At least some of the people who jumped on the bandwagon proudly announced (or at least candidly admitted) that they hadn't read it. Didn't stop them from making pronouncements about it though -- my favorite being Bill Tapply, who started his message "I have not read this book, but..." and then went on to say "This book seemed not to develop, to offer reversals and twists. Suspense has to build to something, not just keep going. It might be a good book, but BEST?"

Bill Tapply, our first psychic book reviewer.

You just can't make stuff like this up.
