  1. Another brilliant episode! Adam Pracht, excellent tips in “Cheapskates.” Thank you for introducing me to! I’ve already downloaded the rest of Nathan Lowell’s ‘Quarter Share.” I really got hooked from listening to it in “First Chapters,” and, I’m planning to read the rest of my series.

    Tony, thanks also for profiling Mike Resnick’s Hugo Nominated short story, ‘The Homecoming.’ I really enjoyed it! I’ve given you a 5-star review on my blog.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Thanks, Blase! It’s always great to hear response and comments and know there’s someone out there listening. Be sure to tune in to the next one: I’m going to give tips on three (legal) ways to read “The Hunger Games” for free. Also, a review of Cory Doctorow’s “For the Win” – a book in the same vein.

  3. I got misty eyed at the end of ‘Homecoming.’ Amazing.
