<HTML>presumably if the prose portal allows people to go into books and get people out, famous people who have had their life story told in paperback can be brought back into the real world. Scary thought. I just had this vision of Jack Schitt ad Hitler sharing the cheescake in Thursdays memory banks with Acheron Hades. then again Thursday would probably never have met Hitler. On the subject, what side do you think he would have taken in the Crimean?
Just off to try and read myself into Jon Lee Andersons "Che Guevara -- a revolutionary life"
<HTML>ok, ok, this is really just a new slant on 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' isn't it?
Now you understand why Mycroft had to keep his strictly to himself - a plasma cannon would have been the least of his worries if it got into the wrong hands - think '1984', anything by HP Lovecraft, etc etc...
<HTML>Oh yeah, not entirely sure why I have a copy of the Bunty Album. I figure there must be a reason, but its lost in the mists of time. I was a very strange kid.
(First person to point out that I'm a very strange adult wins the prize for 'obvious comment of the week')
I briefly thought that Thursday could get Landon back by writing his biography, and the fact that he was planning on writing one should mean that his autobiography would be in the Well of Lost plots. But then again, Thursday says to him (in her memory/dreams) in LIAGB that she wants to remember all the crap stuff he did as well, the human points. As this stuff rarely gets into books then the 'book' Landon might not be the same as the one she loves, and certainly not if she actually writes the book. plus there's the problem of meeting herself in the book, and not liking Landon's own version of herself. It'd be worth a few trips to therapy, that's for sure. Does this rule out nabbing him from his biography?
I really hope I haven't pre-empted a plot strand for 'Well of Lost Plots' here.</HTML>
