Hey Ted, nice to see you around. Very Happy

I didn't even know there was a second Phaze series. And I've only read the first "Bio of a Space Tyrant" book. Don't remember it all that well.

Ha! Thanks! It's weird having three kids-a decade pretty much disappears. Not sure I recommend it, lol.

The funny thing about the Bio of a Space Tyrant series is that it came out a little before the Gap series, and as I recall they are kind of similar. I was not a huge fan of Bio, so when I first read The Real Story, I was totally turned off. I bought The Real Story and the second book as a pair, and never read the second one until I sucked it up and read the whole series ~15 years later. I felt like the Gap was going to be like Bio, just turned up to 11 with a lot worse rape scenes, and when it first came out, I could not handle it.

PA is mostly a guilty pleasure type of writer. When he puts effort into his books, they give you what you want. It definitely helps being a 12 year old boy, though.

Haha, one of the (many) reasons I don't have kids. That said, not sure a decade goes much slower without them. Very Happy

Yeah, he's definitely got some classics, but there are some that are just like "What?" Very Happy
