      Did you spot Thor's Hammer on page 2 - double page spread of issue 1?
      Yup! In fact, I think that is one of the classic comic pages of all time!
      (along with page one, I think he's actually wielding it there )

          It is her only novel and there was an original edition, but then a second edition came out last year with a further bit added. Pax Britannica trilogy was superb. Her trip around Venetian Empire was great - how I learnt that Candia was a real name for Crete.

          The Bechdel book is a graphic novel and I am enjoying. It is really great when you pick up some out of the blue, not know anything and find a good read.

          • After dipping in and out of a variety of short story anthologies on my Kindle, I've gone back to my re-reading of the Elric saga with Sailor on the Seas of Fate

              Just to say, I imagine there's a small overhead reduction for us if you use the covers of Mike's books that we host in the Image Hive here rather than linking to external sources, such as your ImageShack pages. Not a biggie but we have a resource here already and it's a shame not to use it.

              Also, if you're going to take images from the Image Hive for your ImageShack album, a credit and/or acknowlegement of where you sourced them from on your pages would be appreciated. A lot of time and effort has been put in by people here sourcing and scanning the images and it would be nice for that to be recognised if they're going to be distributed further afield. Thanks.

              Can I ask, is this really necessary every time you post a picture? Can I suggest you might want to consider adding a general link to your ImageShack profile in your signature, i.e. "Visit my ImageShack album", instead?

              Sorry to seem like a kill-joy but I'd rather address these issues sooner rather than later.
              The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
