Re: Worst book ever written..

Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy. Made extra-special-worst by being almost-universally hailed as high literature but lots of people who haven't read it.

Re: Pre-Posthumous Pratchet aPpreciation Page

Does anybody know where Rincewind actually is at the moment (i.e., now being the time of Making Money and the place of A-M)? I would like to see a city book that includes Rincewind, and what I REALLY want is for Rincewind to finally get laid... he deserves it after all this time, and maybe a peacefu...

Re: What are you reading right now?

Bill Bryson rocks... A Walk in the Woods is still one of my all-time favorite books of any genre, language, or format. I'm currently halfway through In the Wake of the Plague by Norman Cantor, which is quite interesting but not terribly well written or edited (poor Norman is getting old, but is too ...

Re: Pre-Posthumous Pratchet aPpreciation Page

Ya know, my favorite 'grouping' of Discworld books keeps changing... I've read through the majority three times (some more, the newer ones less). On the first read-through, I kept thinking "goddamnit Terry, why won't you give us more books about Rincewind!" Second read-through I couldn't g...

Re: Television shows you'd kill to see again

I'm not a fan of Dexter ... I don't really like its moral. I mean, it's fine to kill people, as long as you have the desire to and they are "bad" people? Well, I'm not sure it (or any show for that matter) really has a moral as such. I think it's just a really fascinating what-if kind of ...

Re: Television shows you'd kill to see again

They always cancel the shows I like mid-run hah. I wish someone would pick up and continue: Carnivale -- creepy, weird, but very well written and acted Dead Like Me -- hilarious, and a bit weird, excellent writing and acting Dexter hasn't been cancelled yet, but they need to show it on a channel I d...

Re: Did you know?

Oh, I see. I don't put the comma or period inside the quotation marks unless it belongs there. If I were quotng someone on "Holy Shit!" I would include it, but if I were to type: "He said 'the apple is red'.", I wouldn't, because the period isn't part of the quotation. Notice th...

Re: Pre-Posthumous Pratchet aPpreciation Page

I've got two more to go ( Wintersmith and Maurice... ) and I will have read all of the Discworlds straight through in publication order (cept Maurice cause I didn't have it) since May. But I'm more than a bit nuts when it comes to reading. Ok, Pratchett quote for the day (wish i could find Good Omen...

Re: Did you know?

"Going out with a bang", so to speak. Did you know that saying "as it were", is a linguistically correct waysto illustrate that you are being facetious or using slang, but makes no sense grammatically? It is a shortening of "as if it were so", and, yet, makes no sense ...

Re: What are you reading right now?

Well, I hope not. I should already be showing signs if it's possible... this week's reading list has included: two Pratchett novels, a biography of Magellan by Bergreen (don't bother, it sucked), Joseph Banks by O'Brian (incredible, highly suggested for all lovers of the history of science), Into th...
