Damn, first reference to the 80s I've seen in years that doesn't persecute it and isn't about victimization or oppression.

I'll summarize the book for you. He doesn't get laid. I just saved you $2
This guy had stacks of cash in the 80's.

Add audible for 7.49. Pretty good deal.

Pro tip that is how to buy The Demon Accords audible books as well. I highly recommend that series if you like pulp urban fantasy.

I think SOMEONE has a persecution complex. Everywhere he looks he sees persecution! Who got more oppressed in the new one, Bill or Ted?
