    I have a question…where is the avatar for my comment from? Today was my first time commenting here (sad, because I read this all the time). So unless you’re watching me from a nearby vantage point…

  3. HellZiggy says:

  4. Chris Hardwixk says:

    Now what more could you possibly want on a blog than the actual authors commenting on your thread whose works are being lauded??? (I mean beside a cancer cure and a sentient penis, of course.)

    Well done, Barton! These books look fantasmic!!

  5. RickL says:

    I first learned of Scott Sigler from the Dawn and Drew podcast. Very interesting guy.

  7. Larry Doyle says:

    Thank you, Ms. Barton.

  8. Bonnie says:

    Do it, Jessica! I love his audiobooks. I’m usually alternating between laughing and shrieking in horror. Makes for interesting road trips.

  9. Wow, Janet Evanovich is still going! One of these days her alliterative abilities will run out…

  10. Hmm, you guys are making me wonder if I ought to review Ancestor this week…

  11. Steve says:

    Second that on Ancestor. That book, any pretty much anything else written by Sigler, is fantastic.

    Ancestor is tops. Was super fun to listen to and I can’t wait to get my hard copy.

  13. Scott Sigler says:
