    I loved The Little Apple and have given some copies to my “little” friends – the whole concept is adorable, the story is great and the illustrations are wonderful.

    • Thanks for that. Yes, The Little Apple, the first of a series, is to help remind those who remember their farming days, inspire those who would like to (be on a farm), and educate those who don’t know anything about farm life – thanks again!

  3. Thanks to the comments so far and to matrixfans.net for sharing this first in a series of Allie’s Adventures Around the World! It is fun to attend sci-fi cons, among other events, and see the faces of little ones, parents and grandparents… enjoying the book – thanks guys!

    NOW I HAVE IDEAS FOR THE NEXT MOVIE THE REAL IDEAS THEY NEED TO MAKE THE MOVIE LIKE WHAT THEY DID TO THE MATRIX ONLINE GAME NOW YOU SEE IN THE MATRIX MOVIES WHEN PEOPLE FROM THE REAL WORLD COME INTO THE DREAM WORLD TO IN THE WAR IT DON’T NEED TO BE NO MORE OF THAT NO MORE OUT OF THE MATRIX JUST IN THE MATRIX. BECAUSE THE LAST MOVIE CAME OUT 2003 THE MATRIX ONLINE GAME CAME OUT 2004. IF YOUR EVER WATCH ON THE DISC 2 CD IN THE MATRIX REVOLUTION CASE AND TELLS YOU ABOUT THE MATRIX ONLINE GAME AND YOU LISTEN TO WHAT THE MAN SAY THAT THE MATRIX ONLINE GAME IS A CONTINUE STORY OF WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MATRIX SO THAT WHAT NEED TO HAPPEN IN THE NEXT MATRIX MOVIE THAT IF THEY COME OUT WITH ANOTHER ONE I HOPE. IT NEED TO BE JUST IN THE MATRIX NO MORE OUT OF THE MATRIX. THE MOVIE NEED TO BE ABOUT THE MEROVINGIAN GOING AFTER THE ORACLE TRYING TO KILL HER SO HER PROTECTOR SERAPH NEED TO FIND TRAINED ASSASSINS TO HELP STOP THE MEROVINGIAN AND HIS ASSASSINS FROM ATTACKING THE ORACLE AND FROM DESTROYING PLACES AND FROM ATTACKING PEOPLE THAT DID NO HARM TO NO ONE IT NEED TO BE DIFFERENT FROM THE MATRIX ONLINE AND THE MOVIES NO MORE OUT THE MATRIX JUST IN PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER MOVIE BECAUSE I AM A VERY BIG FAN OF THE MATRIX I WOULD LIKE TO BE PART OF THIS MOVIE THE MOVIE NEED TO BE CALLED THE MATRIX IN WAR BECAUSE IT’S IN THE MATRIX NOT OUT.

    SO I JUST FOUND OUT WHO BEHIND THE MATRIX MOVIES. ITS A WOMAN NAME SOPHIA STEWART SHE IS A AUTHOR SHE WAS THE ONE THAT STARTED THE MATRIX AND TERMINATOR AND THAT BOTH MOVIES HAVE THE SAME STORY LINES AND I FOUND OUT THAT SHE THE ONE THAT IS GOING TO MAKE THE MATRIX 4 I JUST HOPE THAT ITS TRUE AND THAT IT GOING TO BE A GREAT MOVIE THAT I WOULD GO SEE IN THEATERS AND A MOVIE THAT I WOULD GO OUT AND BUY.

    • Specter says:

      She actually claims to be behind the Matrix and Terminator, but the claims are unfounded. Further review of her case reveals that it’s not only untrue, but her “victory” was actually just an acknowledgement that she could proceed with the case, and nothing more. In the current court system, judges offer the chance to settle things like this out of court so they can focus on more important cases, rather than smaller things such as this, so it’s likely that, if there was a settlement of some kind (the case, I don’t think, went much further), it was only because they didn’t want to spend the time and money required to try a case like that, and it would be cheaper to just settle for a small amount. I believe she might own the rights to the term “Matrix 4″ but she doesn’t own the rights to any of the characters from The Matrix. In fact, her entire case falls apart when you read the book Neuromancer by William Gibson.
