Review of chapter "Call Me Joe" from DieselDriver
Review:
There's a fun science fiction story written by Poul Anderson called "Call Me Joe" that just might be a inspiration for the movie "Avatar".

Weird monster. Wonder who the kid was and just what they did to him.

Review of chapter "AAR" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
That was totally BADASS!! You know i never give out 10s, so consider yourself seriously honored.

When the dead got theirs back, I just cheered. Actually cheered. That was... Yummy!

And thanks for bringin' my boy Ethan into the fray. He's so very fray worthy and I love it when he is part of things!

Now, maybe i can get some writing done!

Sigh.

Peace,

Blue

Review of chapter "AAR" from annararen
Review:
Re-read this after I finished the current Joe Ledger novels, and I got more than a smile in return. Fun read this one.

At least in this world, the evenst of the forth novel would be completly different, seeing as vampires truly exists, and they do have a paranormal origin, and they aren't some genetic offshots.

Are there any plans in the future to inlcude more of Joe's plot points into the oveall story line?

Thank you for writing and sharing!

Review of chapter "Coming Clean" from unicornzvi
Review:
I kept reading this series hoping there'd be more of the quality I saw in the first story, unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case.

Edit: The first story had a plausible sounding scenario with characters that spoke and acted (for the most part) like I'd expect real people to do in that situation, subsequent stories had ridiculously unbelievable scenarios and the characters talked like their canon selves even when that didn't fit the new setting. The later was especially true with Buffy.

Review of chapter "AAR" from SlowMercury
Review:
That story was *great* fun! The dialogue was spot on, even Pazuzu, who was not at all what I was expecting from a Mesopotamian demon-god but was somehow perfectly appropriate anyway.

Particular touches I liked include: Buffy's style of leadership, debriefing and Q&A (banning "are you serious" and "this is crazy"); Ethan's twisty plotting; the zombie home team vs. the zombie away team; and Regan and Giles being there in the clinch to ask an Ancient God the tough questions. Did Giles manage to keep the notes? They'd be great for posterity, even if they'd never get published in academia. ("So what's your source for this?" "Uh...") And perhaps the WCI will want to recruit Regan now, since they've learned she's a bookish type with mystical experience, and Regan might be at loose ends now since her dig got shot up.

Awesome story in a wonderful series.

Review of chapter "AAR" from Gideon
Review:
So the Hero of this story was Ethan all along? Well done to Buffy and Faith though, using all the resources available to them and then some. Stopping a godling in his tracks is not an easy task. At least Buffy's next mission should be easier, right?

Review of chapter "AAR" from ShyBob
Review:
"I can recognize apocalyptic terminology in forty languages" is a great line, even though your version of Buffy is sharp enough to scare me a little. And the "conversation across the wire" between a government agent and a slayer on one side and possessed zombies on the other was the best example of the trope I've seen written(to be oxymoronic).

Review of chapter "AAR" from Stemaphie
Review:
I just stumbled on to this series and I read the whole thing in 2 days! Amazing work and I hope that you are planning on continuing with this work! I'm looking forward to reading more :)

I was wondering if you could let me know what books you used...the characters used are awesome and I would love to read the books for them. Thanks!
Comments from author:
Joe and most of his team, Gault, and Gault's girlfriend Eris are from the Joe Ledger Series by Jonathan Maberry in this one. Phantom, Muggsy, Boyer, Ballantine, and the rest of the military personnel are my creations (Ballantine's name is cribbed from the movie version of Gunga Din). Regan MacNeil and a lot of this version of Pazuzu are from the Exorcist by William Peter Blatty. Dutch is from Predator and Harrigan is from Predator 2.

Review of chapter "AAR" from maxthehobbit
Review:
Another great story. I liked how this one was long and kinda complicated. It tickled me how Giles and the other woman kept the demon talking for hours before the fight started.
Thanks for sharing.
