    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.

      It's been twenty years since I read ROI and I didn't like it then - I might have to go back and read it TF! Until then it's the black bird.

        Yeah understandable Groakes,it wasnt until i re-read it that i appreciated it.
        Although i think it was the first book of Mikes to give me an insight to the whole Multiverse theme.

          Rituals for me. Reminds me to give it an outing again some time soon.

            Very simply, based on my reviews on this site: TWoT = 6.5/10, PiO 7/10. So probably the closest call yet, neither novel a great work but the Erekosë just edges it.
            _"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."

              I can recall very little of either of these, but because I can remember Faustaff from the first I voted for that.
              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.
