I'm so excited to get started! But must reach critical mass first. Here's hoping I get there soon. This is just the sort of thing I wanted to read as a young'un. I don't plan to write down to young readers, so I expect that the themes and story will appeal to grown-ups, as well.
If you haven't watched Cosmos or haven't seen it since when it aired on PBS during the late 1970s and early 1980s, do yourself a favor and watch it!
