First I want to thank all my proof readers and beta readers for all your help in making Code Monkey a better story and a better read. I also want to thank Soronel for such great insight and feedback.
I want to remember my mother's sister, Aunt Avo. She loved science fiction. She is the one who I used to watch butcher hogs and chickens when I was little. She also reminded me how to correctly prep stomach and intestines so you can use them later to hold water, sausage, lard, or eat them if you want to. She passed away Sunday and was 93 years-old.
Thank you to everyone sending email and also those who contribute.
