    That is a tasty sig, FS.
    _"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."

        You’ve gained the victory, Rome, it will not hold:
        Britain when hist’ry shall her page unfold,
        In future times, where’re her flag’s unfurl’d
        Shall prove the queen and terror to the world.
        Forward at least two thousand years we’ll go,
        And shew what London will be: and then shew
        A pastime Britons then will pleasure in,
        A checquer’d droll, its hero HARLEQUIN.

        London: or, Harlequin and time, 1813
        (p 159)

        A tough choice but it has to be The Condition of Muzak, for me.
        It has been a pleasure .

              It does make you wonder where all these additional voters were first time around, doesn't it?

                  We need something more sinister, what with Blood and Souls in the lead. Electronic Doppelgangers?

                    Erm, PM you say? My basic clock reading skills not up to much it seems.
                    OK then: Another 10 hours to go! Well, 9 now.

                      I'm compromising: voted for Elric this time to get his name back into the Hollywood decision makers' minds ... and I've decided to read Condition of Muzak again, after soooo many years.
