Clowns-6 is a group and more is never too many, providing the aquarium is large enough.

No, just shorts. I don't believe they have ever been used for pugilistic activities.

Oh yeah, she's about life-size which is a real good in-your-face illustration of the potential size.

No geaston, but The Menagerie Petshop on Parliament Street has 16 copies (I think) on order and I'm going to be doing a book signing there at some point.
These copies that Mark and I got today are just advance issue. The main bulk are on a ship coming from the printers in China as far as we know.

I was just asked about the book today and had a request for an autographed copy.
I guess I'll just have to be patient. :(

By the way, how does it finally feel to hold and read the fruits of our labor?
