When Micajah Fenton discovers a crater in his front yard with a broken time glider in the bottom and a naked, virtual woman on his lawn, he delays his plans to kill himself. While helping repair the marooned time traveler's glider, Cager realizes it can return him to his past to correct a mistake that had haunted him his entire life. As payment for his help, the virtual creature living in the circuitry of the marooned glider, sends Cager back in time as his 10-year-old self.

A goddess returned, a war between primal powers, and a prophecy to fulfill. That's a lot of crap to heap on anyone's plate, much less a former game programmer from Brooklyn. But that's exactly what Bill Ryder - gamer, geek, and legendary vampire - has to deal with.

This is the eighth book in the Bill the Vampire series and each is better than the last. Rick Gualtieri writes like I think, quick comebacks, and low-brow humor with intelligent undertones.

I hope he writes more because he has made my commutes enjoyable for the past couple of months with these books.

There are hangovers, there are bad hangovers, and then there's waking up inside someone else's head. Thirty-something bartender Charlie Wilkes is faced with this dilemma when he wakes up to find himself trapped inside The Black Room - a space consisting of impenetrable darkness and a huge, ethereal screen floating in its center. It is through this screen that he sees the world of his female host, Minnie.

Yes, it was very entertaining.

What was one of the most memorable moments of In The Darkness, That's Where I'll Know You: The Complete Black Room Story?

Every time you thin you know where the author is going, he throws you a curve.

Stone Man was also good. this one was close to Stone Man.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Had a few laugh moments and a few WTF moments.

Any additional comments?

Good Job Luke!
