      Anthony, I told Mark he had a standing invitation to visit us again when the sequel comes out.

      Oh, come on, let him push his current book some more! I mean, of course sequel = yay but it's hard work to do that sort of thing!

    I enjoyed this last meeting even though I had to leave early. Was there any information I missed about Mark Rybczyk's book? I am interested in reading it and want to make sure I have all the information before searching for it. Thanks for the assistance.

      I didn't buy it there, Rebecca, but I found it on amazon for $13 something. An $4.99 on Kindle. I am going to buy the book version.

    This was perhaps my third or fourth meeting to the group, the first time with an author speaking to the group. Well worth missing the A&M and Alabama game, loved hearing Mark and all the member talks about their books and even discovered a new genre called "bio punk." Who knew? Nice being around people who are interested in reading, books, words, ideas and an open exchange of information.

      You made quite a football sacrifice, John; glad you enjoyed it. Biopunk is a subset of cyberpunk. Think of books like "The Island of Dr. Moreau" by H.G. Wells, "Jurassic Park" by Crichton and "The Windup Girl" by Bacigalupi.
