And no it's not, I thought I'd jump on the Vote Yes to AV Avatar bandwagon that a few people have put up and after a quick google search I found this one. It's everyone's favourite cross-dressing comedian, Eddie Izzard.
Oh, and I am loving the book. After the last couple of Trek novels I've read, IFM is epically awesome.
