B) hi all i just want to ask if anyone can help me find a series of books that i read about fifteen years ago they were a series about a pilot with i think an f15 that was all tricked up. the writer was an american and there were about 6 or 7 in the series. the story line was about how the vice pres of the US sold out to the russians and america got wasted. each book dealt with a different adventure. his aircraft was stacked with weapons and had side thrusters on it . and of course he always came out on top. in one book they were in St Louis and it was were all the football players ended up. they played only one game it was continous 24hr 365 days game and you could bet on the quarter or day or year ect. i think the pilots name was Hawk does anyone know of these books and if they are still available. they were a good fun read... thanks Ozzie

B) i have been in contact with Mack Maloney and i told him i read his wingman books and asked if he would send me a bumber sticker. well he replied and wanted to know how his books found there way to australia. i told him the story of a business partner brought them here when he moved to Oz from Vermont. so he is sending me a bunch of stickers and two books, the first of superhawks and the second of starhawks. (for free) unfortunatley his publisher will not sell them outside the North America. all that he asks is i take a photo of his bumper sticker with a prominent aussie landmark in the background and send it to him. how cool is that. has anyone dealt with Amazon before as i will have to buy the wingman series from them .
