I don't have time to read it right now (probably tonight), but I thought some of you might be interested that Steven Gould has a short story set in the "Jumper" universe up at Tor.com.

And by the "Jumper" universe, I mean the books Jumper and Reflex, not the movie with the same title and basic premise.

I'm dying to read Reflex. Jumper was so much better than the movie.

Excellent story.

Avoid the book "Griffin," which was written to accompany the movie by giving the newly-added character a back story. The only saving grace is that Gould asked to write it himself so at least it's readable, but compared to the originals it's simply not as good.
