Awesome books, and some of my favorites from when I was a kid. I have very vivid memories of what I pictured. This might seem kind of odd, but when Radiohead first came out with Kid A, it reminded me of these books. Maybe it was the artwork or something, I don't know.

I found that! I read it first. It's a good primer to get back into the series.

I started reading Bruce Campbell's "Make Love: The Bruce Campbell Way" a few days ago. It's pretty damn funny, although nowhere near as cool as "If Chins Could Kill".

Douglas Adams was way bizarre.

I finished reading Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys a couple weeks ago and I am now finishing up Clive Barker's Imajica.

I just finished readin State of Fear. It is now out in paperback. He made a couple of factual mistakes, which are glaring to people living in Southern Cal, but it made me rethink some of my positions on government policy. It didn't turn me into a conservative, just means more research on my part.

Interesting... I just picked this up yesterday, and I'm enjoying it so far (chapter 7). I'm actually kind of surprised to find anyone else had heard of it.
