    Wayward's Replacement

    • 2 Comments
    I know I've not been attentive for a while. However, is that any reason to try and steal my crown? It looks like Charles Petzold is trying to be funnier than me. Check out his plan for a new book. He claims it's an ' Evolutionary Leap '. I'll gladly...
