Review: Business As Usual

By now you know I love Handheld Press and their dedication to reprinting work that has been unfairly forgotten.

Great acting doesn’t necessarily mean great writing, so I was apprehensive, but wow, was this man blessed when they handed out creativity, because this book is absolutely PHENOMENAL.
