Nine months ago, Zeus' murder catapulted the Greek gods back into public life. Now, the whole pantheon revels in new temples, casinos, and media empires - except Apollo. An overachiever with a bursting portfolio of godly duties, the amount of email alone he receives from rapacious mortals turns each day into a living hell. Yet there may be hope, if only he can return Zeus to life! With the aid of Thalia, the muse of comedy and science fiction, Apollo will risk his very godhood to help TV producer Tracy Wallace and a gamer geek named Leif, who hold the key to Zeus' resurrection.

This book had potential and the storyline could have been entertaining had the author not tried to weave so many stories together. The entertainment that could be there for this original idea is just lost in translation. I don’t regret buying many books but I do this one. A complete waste of my time and money.

I was hooked from book 1. I’m so sad this is over. The book is laugh out loud funny. Anyone adept in the art of the sarcastic remark will feel right at home diving into this series. I’m holding out hope it gets turned into a movie or tv series.

There are reasons we fear the dark. Bill Ryder...isn't one of them. Gamer, geek, and legendary vampire - The Tome of Bill is the tale of an unlikely hero trying to survive in a world of undead horrors. Despite awesome supernatural powers, loyal allies, and an attitude the size of Brooklyn, the odds are still stacked heavily against him. Bill Ryder must fulfill his destiny and save the world from the ancient terrors that threaten it - all while trying to work up the nerve to ask out the girl of his dreams.

Six-time Emmy Award-winning funnyman Tim Conway, best known for his characters on The Carol Burnett Show, offers a straight-shooting and hilarious memoir about his life on stage and off as an actor and comedian. In television history, few entertainers have captured as many hearts and made as many people laugh as Tim Conway. There's nothing in the world that Tim Conway would rather do than entertain - and in his first-ever memoir, What's So Funny?, that's exactly what he does.

I am normally a big fan of autobiographies read by the author, but this is a fail. While Tim Conway is legendary for his quick wit and ability to improvise his narration skills are severely lacking. He makes what should be the remarkable story of his life into an overacted dull tale more akin to a bad bedtime story. I tried multiple times to get through this and hoped each time that it would improve. Sadly, it did not. This was a waste of money and a huge disappointment. I will always be a Tim Conway fan, just not of his audiobook.

In Such Good Company delves into little-known stories of the guests, sketches, and antics that made the show legendary as well as some favorite tales too good not to relive again.
