Unrelated to either of my habitats, except perhaps in my scheming brain, is M.T. Anderson's trope-busting Pals in Peril sequel to Whales on Stilts and The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen: Jasper Dash and the Flame-Pits of Delaware.
Delaware, you say? Delaware? Here's what the Governor of Delaware had to say.
Personally, I think New Mexico is calling out loud to Jasper Dash. We have a setting for Jasper and Pals that makes those flame-pits look like barbecue grills. Just for starters, we have: Aliens. Ruins. Ghosts. Lava beds. Rattlesnakes. Chili. Come on Jasper. I mean Tobin. Governor Bill wants you.
No? How about India? We can talk.
