Re: OT: The Bestseller Job by Greg Cox

My favorite Leverage episode title is "The Bottle Job" -- which was a bottle show (limited to standing sets to save money) revolving around a scam to save a bar. So it's a dual-meaning, punny title, and one of those meanings is metatextual!

I believe the title of Matt's book has a double meaning--in that it's about running a con at a convention.

^And of course you're hoping your title has a double meaning...

Re: OT: The Bestseller Job by Greg Cox

If you'll indulge me a bit of self-promotion, this book finally went on sale yesterday!

And, yes, there may be a Star Trek reference or two . . . .
