Anyone read it?  It's by Kim Newman, and it's sort of a Choose Your Own Adventure for adults.

It's a pretty innovative book.  It works like a Choose Your Own Adventure, but it also makes sense if you read it from cover to cover.  It lets you live the life of an Englishman named Keith Marion, and it has tons of different possibilities.  You can become an author, win the lottery, abett a bomb threat, commit incest, become a murderer, become the manager of a bank, go insane . . . it's an awesome book.

Sounds pretty cool- I'll have to look for it.

Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to find in print nowadays.  I picked up an e-Book copy at http://www.ebooks.com/ebooks/book_display.asp?IID=163805.  It has a few errors in it, but it's the only way you can find it today without spending dozens of dollars at Amazon.

Yeah exactly!!!

Hey.. Wait a second.

No!!!!

I think that Binladen pays off Canadian mailmen so they don't deliver it to me quickly! OR MAYBE: America has bought all mailmen going to Vancouver Island. AH HA! The Americans ruin my posting service.
