    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.

    Tricky one as i love the Bastable books but for me The Pyat books are Mikes best work by a mile so it has to be Vengeance.

      I concur with everything you have said!

        Bastable has been stiched up: he's had a terrible draw so far. And looses again.

          Read one, haven't read t'other; one's got Una Persson in it, t'other has great personal memories of the Vanburgh Theatre event with Mike and Alan Moore (first time I'd met Mike since the JC signing in '92) so simply for sentimental reasons I think I have to go with Vengeance.
          _"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."

            Exact same sentiments as tf and Groakes.
            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.

              The Land Leviathan was the one Bastable book that didn't really grip me. No chance against Vengeance, sorry.
