"McComas is a one-man powerhouse, an author-magician, a wizard with words whose range is unlimited; Unforgettable is a stunning performance, a literary tour de force, a wild ride that will leave you breathless. There has never been a book like this. Never." William F. Nolan, author of Logan's Run "It's all here: a fertile imagination, an utter lack of pretension, let-it-all-hang-out honesty, serious purpose, perverse playfulness -- and even fearlessness." Eric Greene, author of "Planet of the Apes" as American Myth, from his Foreword "This compilation is the 'unforgettable' party we all want to attend. Allow host Paul McComas to stretch your mind, make you laugh out loud, and keep you thinking long after you've read the last page."
