The Yellow Canary
A comedic thriller about what happens when a man stands up against crime, even though he probably shouldn't. A great adventure about the only guy in town willing to be a hero. Available at Amazon in print and on Kindle.
Our favorite retro-gaming themed t-shirt company. Like them on Facebook for their designs and other retro-gaming news and topics. And yeah, that's a map of Texas in the style of Dragon Quest. They have America too.
