Hello everyone, and welcome to a new kind of post here on Geek Notes!

Step right up, folks, we’ve got two–that’s right, TWO!–visions for the price of one! (Well, it’ll cost you a nice fountain, but don’t worry about that now.) Plus dead things, demons, and Daedalus deals! All just $19.95 on the 5th chapter of Michael Reads Percy Jackson: The Battle of the Labyrinth, which you might better know as…
