As part of the book tour arranged by A.J. Devlin for Five Moves of Doom he offered an opportunity for a Q & A with regard to the book. I accepted. I sent him a letter and he responded. My letter with his response in blue italics is below. Thank you A.J. for your candid and thoughtful responses.
As I neared the end of Five Moves of Doom I went down to the local Dairy Queen and bought a large banana milkshake. I finished the book while drinking the milkshake.
