My goodness I am loving this.  Admittedly, I am a sucker for duels in fiction, but still, very well written.

Yes, this was my favorit chapter so far, and now it's only one week left until we can read the entire book ^^

Paul Goat Allen has, unprompted, said publicly that it is a "perfect book."

Do you have a source on that?  No because I don't think it's true, but just because I would like to see the original context and if there is anymore to the quote.   Could probably find it myself, but thought I'd check.

The name in that second line seems like a typo, that it should actually be
(click to show/hide)
.  If that's the case, is it only a typo in the sample chapter posting?

Yeah, I'm guessing it will have been corrected in the chapter in the book if they have noticed it, the sample chapters aren't exactly the same as the chapters in the book.

Thanks.  Reading that I am now even more ridiculously excited for this than I was, and that's saying something.
