    Love these Spade/Paladin stories! I recently bought the Early Conundrums, and enjoyed every story. Last week’s story made me sad, so this was a nice change of pace!

    All right, Kris, when’s the full-length novel with these guys coming out? I’ll get in the pre-order line for it.

    Another nice one.
