Author's Notes

Cheesecake and action sequences aside, these works are deeply personal to me. Sure, there's hope and aspirations in my efforts, but there's also despair, a hell of a lot of it, underlining why I burn up my every spare waking moment generating these pages. And 2016 was a year of despair for many people, a year which at best marks a low ebb in the progress of the American Republic... and at worst signals an overt end to even so much as lip service to our ideals as a nation.

I know there's going to be plenty of you reading this who probably voted a certain way out of fear and frustration and a general sense of "fuck you". I will do my best to understand those feelings, as much as I can, but don't expect me to pull my punches. Don't expect that at all.

For the rest of you, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed making it.
