Taking The World By Storm! (Books)

If you have been on the Internet in the past several years, then the odds are you have felt Alex J. Cavanaugh's presence.  Alex is not just an extraordinary writer of extraordinary sci-fi, but also is (I believe) 2,317 people, judging by his sheer output.  THE MAN NEVER SLEEPS, which is lucky for us because it means he's finished his sci-fi trilogy with the release of CassaStorm!

To celebrate, Alex is taking the world by storm, via a massive blogfest in which his readers were asked to submit questions to him and he'd answer! Any question! Anywhere! Any time! With ANY NUMBER OF TOPPINGS... sorry. My mind tends to focus on pizza.

You can visit and Comment on Alex’s blog this week for a chance to win a Cassa mug, mousepad, magnet, and swag!

Now, here's the question I asked:

Which would you rather have exist in real life: Muppets, or Dinosaurs?

And Alex's answer:

Muppet dinosaurs! I’d like giant, felt dinosaurs in assorted colors. Preferably big and scary but with funny voices.

"We love Alex!" -- Muppet Dinosaurs.
Brilliant answer, Alex. It kept your political future alive by angering neither the Muppet NOR the Dinosaur voting populations.   

Here's a preview of what you'll get in 

By Alex J Cavanaugh

From the Amazon Best Selling Series!

A storm gathers across the galaxy…

Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.

After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.

Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could return. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

Thanks, Briane! And you found a real Muppet dinosaur. Does he talk? Does he sound more like Fozzie Bear or Gonzo? Or maybe Pepe Le Prawn?

Wait, you're saying that Muppets don't exist in real life? You can't be saying that! I'm crushed.

I want a Muppet dinosaur...
