"A smuggler, a thief, a computer expert, a strong man and a convicted kiddie fiddler - what could possibly go wrong?"
The Chairman, a Shakespearean tale of friendship and betrayal that rivals that of Hamlet, is the harrowing story of Jim Greer, a man loyal to a fault to Florida Governor Charlie Crist, his benefactor.

This volume collects Sue's commentary for the first 26 episodes of that ground-breaking series ('The Way Back' to 'Star One'), when idealistic terrorist Roj Blake was at the helm, Travis was on his case, and the galaxy was staffed by Space Vampires.

The book includes a foreword by Gareth Roberts, a new Introduction and exclusive episode annotations that you won't find on the blog.
