A friend turned me onto Acts of the Apostles and it rocked! One of the better SciFi books I have read in a long time. It'd make a damn fine movie as well. Highly recommended!!!

John has self-published very slick paper editions of both titles that he sells for reasonable sums, and he's hoping that CC licensing will be complimentary with sales of the meatspace editions

I do believe that you mean "complementary", don't you? As in the one complements the other, not tells it how nice its hair looks today?

Anyway, that's great news. Good author, good books, CC license. What more could you ask for?

Acts of the Apostles is a GREAT book. I'm not one for reading entire books on-screen, but I can tell you that it is well worth buying. You can order it from Amazon, but if you order it from John's web page he makes more money -- and it's only $15, including shipping. (You can still post a review on Amazon later!) Get it. You won't be sorry.
