    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.

      TVoR, for the memories of the Vanburgh Theatre.
      _"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."

        Felt it harder to concentrate in Carthage, so ceterum censeo cartaginem delendam est: I vote for Rome for which we had tio wait so long.

              Pyat vs Pyat! VoR - a decade or more in the making.

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'

                Went for the end of the series rather than the middle. It was all building towards the events in TVoR, anyway, especially that bit right at the end. How sad.
                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.

                  It's a tough choice - but like everybody else, the tragic immensity of the finale to the quartet is just overpowering.

                    It was the immense tragedy that did it for me.
