  • Man Booker Prize 2005

    Now here's a headline that if literally true I'd pay good money to watch:

    McEwan fights Barnes for Booker.

    Whaddyamean its a 'non-contact' sport?! 8O Where's the fun in that? I wanna see blood and stuff splattered over the dining tables!! :twisted: *That's* the way to decide these literary contests.
    _"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."

    It would certainly liven the whole thing up. :D
    'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

      I think they should decide the winner by having each contendor line up with a hardcover copy of their book and then throw it at someone standing opposite them.

      Most damage wins.
