A bit of shameless promotion. My brother-in-law's first book has just been published. THE LAST PROTECTOR by Daniel C. Starr.
I would put it in the science-fiction/fantasy genre but it's a good story, no matter how it's categorized. Dan's quite a character and he's created some really interesting ones for his book. More on Dan and his book here and here. The Amazon.com link. Barnes and Noble. Borders.
I read bits and pieces of various versions of the book and am looking forward to sitting down and reading the whole thing. (I expect to pick up an autographed copy from the author himself tomorrow.)
