    Serge Storms, that loveable thermonuclear vigilante and one-stop-Florida-trivia-shop, has been leaving corpses strewn across the Sunshine State for more than a decade. The authorities—especially one tenacious state agent—have begun to notice the exponential body count, and send a police task force to track down Serge. Could his luck finally have run out?

    Any additional comments?

    I generally enjoyed this work, but the vocal presentation of Serge left something to be desired. Wyman pitched his voice to make Serge sound like the Chairman of the Lollipop Guild. It wasn't until halfway through that I realized Serge was average sized adult. The croaky, nasal voice made this less enjoyable that it could have been. Next time, make Serge sound a bit more resonant and a lot less Donald Duck.

    Bob Howard is a computer-hacker desk jockey, who has more than enough trouble keeping up with the endless paperwork he has to do on a daily basis. He should never be called on to do anything remotely heroic. But for some reason, he is.

    Story

    The story had promise - a computer geek who battles the forces of evil using his technology expertise.
    Unfortunately, the author's attempt to meld science and the supernatural fell flat. Much of the dialogue consisted of inscrutable acronyms and quasi-digital gobbledigook punctuated by phrases like "and this will prevent zombies from eating our brains" or "because if we don't upgrade the capacitor to 7 ohms, the demons from the planet Zoob will destroy earth." That schtick might work as the frosting on a well-conceived story, but it cannot stand on its own... and certainly not in such large quantities. [By the way, I have worked in the tech field for 20 years. I understood a good deal of the tech stuff -- but a lot of it was made up.]
