    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.

        Dragon: while Bastable is a top chap, the (implied) birth of Melnibone (or one of them anyway) is just too much to ignore.

          It's a long time since I read Dragon so this perhaps isn't a fair fight. ISTR liking it a lot, but because War Lord is fresher in my memory I'm going to choose Bastable over Daker.
          _"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."

            Warlord for me, I can still remember how much I enjoyed it the first time I read it. Ended too soon for my liking.
            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.

                Brilliant to see that one of the Bastables will be seeing second-round action after the trouncing the other two are taking.

                  Warlord of the Air. I have fond memories of reading it while recovering from a hernia op at the same time the first Gulf War was playing out on TV. It seemed an appropriate (though accidental) choice of reading.
                  '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'
