    I accept the blame and moral responsibility (but not financial) for that, BW. Ron doesn't get the recognition he deserves. I never would have discovered his works if I hadn't gotten a notice from Amazon that King's Blockade Billy was set to be published as trade HC, with the first edition being printed by CD. I went to the website, ordered Midnight Grinding and I was hooked.

    Ronald Kelly's story style is very addicting. In a different vain, I'm also addicted to Brian James Freeman's works... But they are very different.

    Most entries I found say that "Gazillion" is a ficticous number. But one blog entry read (and I paraphrase):

    From the root "gazzen", Latin for “earthly edge”, or "end of the earth", abbreviated to gaz (literally 28810 ancient Greek miles, being one full revolution of the globe) So how much is a Gazillion?

    a Gazillion has (28810 x 3) zeros

    86430 zeroes!

    here's where I found this little nugget:

    I don't know about "good" use, but I did pull up another bit of useless trivia to add to my collection

    Thanks for the positive remarks about my writing, guys. You keep buying 'em, and I'll keep writing 'em.

    Oh, and "Mr. Roboto" is my three-year-old's favorite song, after "Swing Lo, Sweet Chariot". Go figure... he's weird like his old man.

    It's always been a toss up to me...Grand Illusion or Pieces of Eight.....Tough call...Miss America vs Great White Hope.

    Songwise, I think my favorite has to be Prelude 12/Suite Madame Blue from Equinox.

    "Miss America" and "Suite Madame Blue" are my favorites---along with "Mr. Roboto." I can't help it!

    Put me in for 'Laurali' or 'Loreli'; I like that song by Styx the best. Then, 'The Grand Illusion'.
