It kind of bothers me that it was edited in only 10 minutes.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Yeah.  And I noticed several errors in the piece that would have been caught by a good editor.  Painful.

Eh, it was fun and quick.  Made me laugh a few times, which is more than I can say for most books that I've read lately.  Scalzi does a good job.  Glad to see that he's playing in the short story field.  Thanks for the post.

Sadly, not even one mention of bacon. Otherwise a pretty entertaining story.

Are you joking or did you miss it?

Had never heard of Scalzi until this post. It was amusing though. Thanks
