Monday LOL Book

Please declare all LOL books when crossing the border into the United States. Previous LOL books are available at http://jimhines.livejournal.com/tag/lol.

I've wanted to do a LOL version of one of Simon Haynes' Hal Spacejock books for a while now, but I could never come up with a caption that really worked for me. And then I saw the cover art for his forthcoming, Hal Spacejock: No Free Lunch.

Hal 4 isn't up on Amazon yet, but check out Simon's web page to learn about the series, or just head over and say hi to halspacejock.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the weekly LOL.

*chuckle* Ya big nerd... of course, so am I b/c I totally get it. :) Actually waiting for Conan to come out in May. Cost us $650 to upgrade our systems... STILL trying to figure out that logic. I think my husband is getting sneakier. ;)

Well, I forgave him b/c he's upgrading his computer, my computer and building one for his parents... so, that averages just over $200 per computer, right? Yeah... sure. :)

Just submitted my story. I'm going to be useless for the rest of the day from nerves!!! My first submission ever!!

Thanks! Hal has an almost Kirk-like aura of pure, shiny ego to him, doesn't he?

The question then becomes will he find the +5 shovel with wounding in the hole behind the treasure chest after he gets past the manticore?

... I've been playing Neverwinter Nights again. My geek is showing.

Geeks are always welcome here! Actually, the non-geeks are probably going to be confused by a fair amount of what I post...

I think I have one of his books on my wish list, just haven't gotten around to buying it.

I did, however, finally order Goblin War friday....should get it in a few days.

And the book has now been magically moved to the top of my wish list right above 'Cruel Zinc Melodies' by Glen Cook (A book that literally made me bounce up and down in my chair when I first saw it for pre-order).

Thanks! It's gotten a bit more challenging to keep coming up with one every Monday, but so far, so good. Next month I'll have to do something special to celebrate a year of LOL books :-)
