Real Owls Not Included.

If you want to know more about the Barn Owl Review cover, check out what Greg has to say here. I think we're keeping the back cover a secret for now, but I can tell you that it's mind-blowing. I've seen it.

Another fun fact: he was born in Cuba.

Gotta love the wiki.

Take on May

It's the first day of finals week and I already have that loopy off-my-routine feeling. Waiting for things to grade, and when those ...
