  1. Ward, the sequel to the web serial Worm, has started at the website Website also includes a link to Worm. Anyway, figured there should be a discussion thread, since I'm excited as hell about it and I wondered what people here think. I'm personally excited about the return of Victoria, not as a squid thingy. And I really like the idea of super strength protagonists, even when their power is "Jack Braun but better". Anybody got any theories? Thoughts? Hatred of Worm?
  2. I wrote that post ages ago. I have no idea what I was thinking. I've read Good Omens and loved it. It's what made me start reading Neil Gaiman. ... I honestly have no idea what I was thinking when I wrote that line.
  3. I bought Snuff, kind of hesitating. The truth is that I've disliked every Pratchett book since Nation, and I kind of figured he'd lost his touch due to obvious reasons. I was wrong. Snuff is excellent. The drop in quality is something that occasionally happens to Pratchett (See: Equal Rites, Monstrous Regiment. God did he drop the ball with those), and Snuff is up there with almost all of the other Watch books. Not as good as Night Watch, but definitely better than The Fifth Elephant (Is that the one with the werewolves?). Very glad that Pratchett hasn't lost his touch. I'll pick up a copy of Dodger when I see it in softcover. Should I bother with any of his collaborations?
  4. is absolutely awesomer than you.

  5. היי, רוב האנשים לא יכולים לקרוא את זה, אבל אני כן!

    עזובאותך מגסות, תביא משהו שנון!

  6. I got a hardcover second hand Thud! in excellent condition today :).
  7. I think it is. All i know is what's on Wikipedia.
  8. They already have a Nobby. And the next movie is Going Postal, which includes Vimes, I believe.
  9. To be honest, I wasn't as impressed with Lords & Ladies as it was hyped. I'm not a Witches fan, I admit. Give me another Watch book any day. Or a Rincewind. Or a non-Susan Death.
  10. Best first post ever, Peaches. Welcome to the board.
  11. I can bitch about any casting I want. "Horseman #5 looked like crap on that horse! What the fuck sort of casting allowed such an incompetent rider act in this series! And he looks wrong! Horseman #5 was 6 feet tall in the book, that guy's clearly 5'9" Good luck D&D. You're gonna need it.
  12. GRRM never fit my view of Jon Arryn. I imagined a tall, thin, Jeremy Irons-like figure.
  13. I like the suggestion there was for having him a head on a pike, and having Joffrey (or Tywin) explaining different people he put on the pikes, with it ending on GRRM and saying "And this one wrote lies about me!" You should use that. Also, it's not a Stan Lee moment. A Stan Lee moment would be if Ned was having a hard time, and GRRM appeared next to him and offered him some help as a kindly old man. I'd think it would be more of a Terry Pratchett moment, where he acts as someone either self centered or idiotic.
  14. Thank you for your comments on AFFC, as well as the Watchmen movie. I was convinced I was the only one who thought like that until you arrived. I hereby bestow upon thee a title.

  15. ... But Sandor is huge and brutal looking. You're not supposed to feel much sympathy for him. And GRRM has admitted that his fantasy-inducing-ness was a mistake, or at least unintended, from what I've heard. Parris or Ran may correct me on this. Willig, however, is my favorite choice for the role. If he doesn't have a British accent, I think they should work with him to get one, because you're not going to get closer to the description than him. I remember hearing a while ago about the idea of him as Sandor, and Dalip Singh as Gregor, which would be excellent. If not for my complete inability to understand a word Singh says. Willig was excellent in Dexter, and I think he'll be good in this. As I've said before, he's an actor with his eye on awards. Those actors generally tend to be serious about trying their hardest with a role. I say generally because Lindsay Lohan also said those things.
