Acknowledgments

Apparently, it takes a village to get the holder of B.A.A. through high school physics. I’d like to thank Bill Roper, Bill Sutton, Tom Wiegand, Paul Kwinn, Bruce Schneier, Peter Alway, Vicki Farmer, and a good chunk of my live journal friend’s list whose full names I don’t actually know, for helping me bounce Torin through vacuum. Also, thanks to Sgt. S.K.S. Perry for adjusting Presit’s signal so it couldn’t be discovered.

Special thanks to Violette Malan who helped with Pedro’s Spanish and warned me that I might have to defend my choices. Languages drift, people. That’s my defense.

All help gratefully received. Any mistakes that made it into publication are my own.
