Was also waiting to remember the titles of the surf reads that are on my to-buy list before posting up here.

    You buggahs neva happy! I give you the gift of missing me and you start fiending for my discombobulated literary works. Poor yankme over there broke out in cold sweats and started speaking in tongues before the wardens strapped him down and pumped him full of intravenous naltrexone to hasten the withdrawal. It's a crime to make that turkey go cold!

    You brahs are doing just fine today in my intermittent absence. Keep up the good work!!

    Kathy, I told you, I'm finishing the book as fast as I can. Any disruptions will delay its completion. I'm really hoping you free me from captivity following its release. Thanks número uno!

    Hey Goofy Footer, is The Lost Coast good? If one has a thing for northern California, does it satisfy?

    Man, In Search of Captain Zero isn't fiction. Neither is CYGAWA. Dude, Captain Zero was in High Times and all. Alan Weisbecker is a real person. So is Lisa. No wonder Mr. Weisbecker pops pills and smokes so much.

If you get it and enjoy it, please spread the word. Thanks

    Even though he's from North Jersey, everyone(at least the regulars) should buy a copy of this book. Just do it. Spicoli, you should buy two.

    Jeez, MattyB don't be so modest. You should have told us you got a book published. You ever see Goodfellas where Jimmy's all excited that Tommy's getting made. Well, that's how I feel now.

    Nice accomplishment.

    I hope your mental health is good.

    People, don't be a-holes, and buy the dude's book.

    By fiction I was referring to Alan's loss of reality at times... he is writing what he remembers and with that, you never know.

    Lost Coast was good. I only posted what I enjoyed, there's a few I've read that didn't make this cut.

    Forgot to add: On a Wave. and Cliffs of Insanity. Both GREAT.
