Happy Launch Day

I'm pleased to announce the release today of Mac Montandon's Jetpack Dreams: One Man's Up and Down (but Mostly Down) Search for the Greatest Invention That Never Was.

“A breezy niche history of a staple of pulp adventures…An amusing collection of stories about individuals of varying degrees of eccentricity who are devoting much of their lives and personal fortunes to a near-impossible dream.” - Kirkus Reviews.

“Montandon’s entertaining adventures highlight a strange footnote of the space age.” - Booklist.

“Reading this book is as fun as zooming through the sky with a rocket on your back. And better yet, you won't break your collarbone.” - A.J. Jacobs, author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Lving Biblically.

Wait. Was "Launch Day" a Mr. Lyons pun in this instance?

Bravo!
