For one fateful weekend, the once a year technological know-how fiction and delusion conference, Rubicon, has all yet taken over a often traditional lodge. Now the halls are alive with Trekkies, tech nerds, and myth avid gamers of their Viking finery *all of them desirous to hail their hero, bestselling delusion writer Appin Dungannon: a diminutive despot whose towering ego greater than compensates for his five' 1" top . . . and whose gleeful disdain for his fawning fanatics is legendary.

Hurling insults and furnishings with equivalent abandon, the poor, tiny writer proceeds to alienate ersatz extraterrestrial beings and make-believe warriors at warp velocity. yet someplace among the dress contest and the exhibition Dungeons & Dragons video game, Dungannon will get performed in. whereas die-hard enthusiasts of Dungannon's likely unending sword-and-sorcery sequence ask yourself how they are going to pass on and hucksters ask yourself how a lot they could get for the useless man's autograph, a hapless cop wonders, Who would wish to kill Appin Dungannon? however the actual query, because the harried conference organizers understand, is Who would not ?

"I enjoyed BIMBOS OF THE demise solar . . . superbly saw, humorous, properly developed, even compassionate."
