I would like to thank a number of people for their input in helping this story finally make it into (digital) print. The names of those who have helped most are listed below:
J Jackson Bentley
Andrea & Mark Bradley
Finally, and by no means the least, my wife, Lisa, for her constant support, and for instantly believing that anything I write is brilliant. Her positive comments are as charming as they are personally frustrating when I’m aware of my own imperfections (and not just in my writing)!
