Brian, that's very kind of you - and you're even more funny than I think I am. Oh hang on - that dog's back on the cart again. Get down, Shep!
Many thanks, and glad you enjoyed it. Some Amazon reviews of previous books complained I was trying too hard to be funny, so this time I didn't try at all, and was a bit worried that as a result readers would realise I was actually a gloomy bugger. So it's good to hear I got away with it again. Onwards!
