And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #24

by

Hello. Although we doubt anyone will show up, we would like to invite everyone to our annual National Association of Yammering Skeptics convention, supposedly being held in the ballroom of the Dubious Hotel.

N.A.Y.S. was allegedly founded by Shirley Knott, although no evidence has surfaced that she ever actually existed.

N.A.Y.S. reportedly has over one million members, though no one has been able to substantiate that claim.

Rumor has it that legendary punk band The Puking Cynics will be performing, but that sounds rather suspicious to me.

Please come, reservations aren't needed. God knows we already have enough of those...

    Thanks, Robbin. I'm hanging in there.

    Neville, I'm skeptical as to whether or not you'll find their music. Rumor has it they upstaged The Ramones at CBGB's one night and were never heard from again, but that's not been verified. I'm not sure I believe it myself. (And if you believe any of that I've got tickets to a Clash reunion I'll sell you dirt cheap.)

    Haha that's as funny as ever :) particularly the way it's rounded off by the last sentence.

    Thanks, Drew. I love writing those sponsors almost as much as writing Jake Randolph.

    I was working on a story that continued his journey through the decade of the 60's but I put that on the back burner because I really want to take him back to the "noir" period, so I started a new story that is set in the late 40's. I really want to get that noir feeling that the first story had. Hopefully I'll have enough written to start posting in a couple of weeks. It won't be like the last story I did where it keeps jumping between his past and present. This is more like a "lost" story that will slide in somewhere between the others. But I do have the title already, "Bourbon On The Rocks."
