Wish You Were Here: The Official Biography of Douglas Adams by Nick Webb-started 10-26-05

back on the 19th, i went to the local library. i was estatic to see a copy of son of a witch. yay! a sequel to wicked! i took it with me to conway with week and made a lousy time that much better. it was great but it ended all too soon! more! must have more!
but i understand why the author ended it where he did. it leaves lots to the imagination and cna be a great converstion starter amoung those who've read the book.
very recommended if you loved wicked.
