Thank you,

    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.

    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

    Cheers!
    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.

    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 )

    Just finished Beechcombing - Narrative of Trees as I was intrigued whilst reading an acquiantance/mate/friendly artist who used it a lot in her thesis. The idea of romanticism and how it effects the viewer looking at paintings, in particular our interest in trees.

    Picked up Fun House by Alison Bechdel - who I have never heard of and then maybe Hav by Jan Morris. That I have been saving and think I should get round to reading sooner rather than later.

    Your book looks good by the way.

    The Live is one of those movies I plan to catch sometime - it can take a while as I no longer track things down, having learned patience. Just watched Aeon Flux which I 'planned to catch sometime' four years ago. I thought it would be good. I was wrong. If anyone can think of any redeeming features please point them out.

    Thanks for the comment, hope you still think so if/when you finish. I know I'm offering to a pretty discerning audience.

    Thanks Chris, I'll give it a look. Have my daughter this week so don't know how much reading will get done but we'll get there sometime.

    As for those who don't find Family Guy funny I guess we are just divirgent as hell as a species. After all, I find it hard to believe that Will Ferrell is considered funny but they keep making movies with him as the star so someone must like him.

    Herb, I decided that any interest is enough. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/2299 - this link will take you to the page... or if you prefer goto smashowrds.com and search by name or title - The Last King's Amulet. The coupon number is JQ82L (not case sensitive) and that'll get you a free copy.

    Just started reading OSC's Intergalactic medicine show on my laptop and I thought I'd hate it (not the mag') but when the work is good I'm happy enough. Maybe I'll investigate an ereader after all.

    Out of context, this random thought fo the day. There are people who don't think Family Guy is funny. They are the same species as me. i find that hard to believe.
