    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    Kyrinn won't be happy, but I never much cared for the barge.

      One day the rest of you lot will realise just how good a novel The LSD Dossier is and vote properly for a change. Until that day however the best I can keep doing is pointing you to the online PDF.

      I mean, look at that quote at the bottom of this post. What more proof do you need?
      _"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."

        By far the most difficult match up of the round for me but after warehouseloads of deliberation i've plumped for Nick.
        I do love The Golden Barge though!

          I'm going away to read the LSD Dossier and then I'll come back and vote. I do really like The Golden Barge though, it's gentle but quite deep, the search for self and all that. Any hoo I'll get back to you on this one

          Artists, fortunately, rarely gain political power, though I have sometimes seen WWII as a squabble between two mediocre painters, extended to terrifying proportions.

            Yeah, while GB is K's favorite novel, LSD was a good, solid read. Barge was just too trippy for me in places. Kind of a humanist version of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, while LSD was just an old-fashioned detective's tale. LSD for me (and there' something I don`t say every day.)

              Had to be TGB. I still haven't read TLSDD. Sorry David.
              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.

                Isn`t that Mike's character in Time of the Hawklord?
