My friend Mike let me borrow his copy of this book. It was an older version (1970s?). I read this book very slowly. It has a wonderful concept (the writer of the story is in the story as it is being written). It was a rather tedious read. I would not read this book again.

A Weekend for Bar-BQ'ed Oysters

Posted on May 25, 2008 by Stephen

On Saturday night, my family and I went to Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. Knowing that on Sunday we would be buying oysters in Tomales Bay and never having had oysters before, I thought it would be important to try some before cooking them for my family. We ordered a half dozen Bar-BQ'ed oysters so that I could try them. They were so good we ordered a second half dozen. For a bonus, I was not allergic to them.

Warlock Epic Mount Quest

Posted January 17th, 2008 by DarkFact at http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/26321

In addition to normal epic mounts you may purchase like any other class, Warlocks and Paladins get the ability to begin a series of quests for their own special epic mount. Warlocks get access to a souped up version of their Felsteed should they complete the quest, and Paladins get access to a Charger that looks like an upgraded mount of theirs as well.

In this page, we will go over how to obtain the Dreadsteed. While the Warlock's Dreadsteed Questline is the same for both Alliance and Horde, the Paladin Charger Quest line varies if you're Alliance or Horde.
