Playback:stl says of The Big Khan “Very highly recommended. Kleid‘s treatment of characters is pitch perfect. One of the book’s great strengths is its pacing and tone, conveyed by the frequent use of silent panels.” AND with all the great buzz and reviews this book has now sold out its 1st printing!
