Some Little Tidbits of Knowledge

Today, 24 copies of "Assassin Marked" arrived in the mail. The paper copy turned out very nice. Looking the book over, my wife and I discussed the idea of turning the story into a graphic novel. I think it would be a very cool graphic novel; unfortunately, I am definitely not capable of illustrating anything. Finding someone to do the cover was well-nigh impossible. So maybe someday.

In "Assassin Marked" the locations are backdrops and not fully elaborated on in the story; however, Arbona and Penelope are advanced O'Neill Cylinders. Gerard K. O'Neill, an American physicist, proposed the design of these Cylinders, as conceptualized below.
