Mark, Sounds like a must-have. Thanks.

Speaking of Ace Doubles, right after I read half of one a couple months ago--Fear No More by Leslie Edgley--it ocurred to me that it was one of my favorite ways to read a story because it's fun not knowing when the end is coming. Anyone else feel this way? When you read a novel on its own, as the pages run out you know the end is near, but with the doubles, it can sneak up on you. Same with omnibus editions. of course that's only if you don't peak.
