Reviewers' Comments

"…a tale that's both serious and funny. Just the mere thought of Zak Kebron as a statue, and what we commonly think about birds and statues, is priceless."

—Bill Williams,

"…extremely amusing…"

Jacqueline Bundy,

"The best story in the anthology … This is one of the few stories in the book that really seems to capture the Peter David humour. From the title of the story to all of the jokes inside, to the seemingly never-ending wait for the arrival of G'Doh, this story doesn't miss a beat."

"I couldn't stop laughing while reading this story."

—David Roy
