    • BTW folks. Anyplace you could point me that might explain the title change, from The Sleeping Sorceress to The Vanishing Tower? The latter is title of the story I read. Indeed, I had this cover:

        That sounds like a question for Mike, WL.
        _"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."

                  Must admit I've never read Peake, maybe I should try. I'd said on another thread that I'd found Asimov a bit dry, so I couldn't resist seeing if I'd change my attitude after all these years. Turtledove's Guns of the South was brilliant so I always look out for his stuff.

                    • Absolute Dark Knight. Enjoyed both stories but the artwork in DK2 can't be numbered among my favorites. While the exagerration of features in DKR somehow seemed to fit the story the technique in DK2 went even furthur taking the characters in to the realm of troglodyte and, to me at least, detracted from it.

                          • On a business trip to the west stretch of the Ohio River today, I found for sale at the Daviess County Public Library the following items: a CD of Richard Wagner: Orchestral Music from 'The Ring'; a CD of Oliver Mtukudzi's Shoko: Tuku Music from the Townships of Zimbabwe; a copy of Edgar Allen Poe: Selected Prose, Poetry and Eureka (I have been looking for a used copy of 'Eureka' in its entirety for a while now); a copy of Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (which is in far better shape than my old pocket paperback). The total price for the entire set? $1.50 US.
