  • Getting right into The Malacia Tapestry by Brian Aldiss.

    • Been reading Watching the Watchmen by Dave Gibbons, the "definitive commentary on the ultimate graphic novel", which I got for Christmas.



      One of the many interesting facts that Gibbons reveals in WTW is that the superduper Absolute Watchmen edition, for which the original comic was recoloured and had some minor art corrections made, is now the basis for the standard paperback edition, so I might just need to invest in a new copy of that (slightly cheaper than selling out for the AW edition, although I hope to do so eventually).
      _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
      _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
      _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
      _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

      • Well, I'm reading Watchmen as well. But, its the original graphic novel, as opposed to the new Complete, that I asked for and received for Christmas. Last time, I checked it out of the library. Now, I own one in time for the SFMB read!

          I really enjoyed both of those (but as my eldest son pointed out): the word "tumultuous" turns up ten times too many in WoW.

          You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

            Well it can slip out so easily in conversation...

                    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.
