A couple of days ago, I wrote about the Fangbone books. Today, I came home and had a message on the phone.

“Mr. Jay? We’d like to know where you got those books. I read the first one yesterday and the second one today and I really want to read the third and fourth and fifth.”

I called him back and left him a message. “Buddy, I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that there are only three books. The good news is that the third one is on our dining room table right now and we can give it to you as soon as we read it first.”

So there’s that. I don’t think it’s possible for me to give a higher recommendation than that one right there.
