  2. Re: What Non-Fiction Book have you just finished? 'Age of Reason' and 'Common Sense' by Thomas Paine. What has happened to our government?
  3. Re: Setting, really: Corporate Champions? I am trying to imagine Ghost Archer with a Dr. Pepper logo on his chest having to stop in the middle of combat to hold up a can, pop the top and take a long drink to satisfy his corporate sponsor. I guess the dazzling white smile would be brought to you by Crest. After a while all the heroes would begin to look like NASCAR cars.

  6. Re: What Are You Listening To Right Now? Just finished Terminal Freeze by Lincoln Child. Debating over Fever Dream by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, 61 Hours by Lee Child, Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison, or Kitty Goes to War by Carrie Vaughn. Optionally I could go back and finish High Profile by Robert B. Parker.
  7. Re: Quote of the Week From My Life. I love crappy sci-fi movies, you know that junk that comes on the SCIFI channel? Well, when Ghost Fletcher was eight, he and I were watching a movie called Gargoyles, a 2004 epic starring Michael Pare. Somewhere near the end, the star is talking about a 'murder' by the gargoyle and my eight year old son says, "That's not murder, it's the food chain." Makes a father proud
  8. Re: Quote of the Week From My Life. One Mrs. Archer remined me of . . . Archerette, age five, is playing with a baby carrage. Not statisfied with a babydoll, she decides to try a real 'baby', one of our three Boston Terriers. Now Bostons aren't that big, normally. maybe 12 to 15 pounds. Well, we had the Hulk of Bostons, DJ, weighting in at 25 pounds. This is who five year old Archerette figured would make the best baby. So, scooping up a complacent DJ, she drops him in the carrage and covers him with a blanket. That lasted just long enough for Archerette to start pushing the poor dog around before he sought escape. Bounding out he upset the carrage, toppling it over onto it's side and sending everything Archerette had pack inside all over the floor. "OH! SHITAKE mushrooms!" screeches my little darling. Wish she'd use language like that NOW!
  9. Re: Quote of the Week From My Life. Archerette walks into the kitchen as I am making breakfast. Her: What are you cooking. *Note obvious pan full of bacon and the distinctive aroma* Me: Bacon Her: Oh Two minutes later the Boy Archer wanders in. Him: Whatcha cookin'? Me: Go ask your sister.

  12. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Just finished the seventh book of the Nightside series by Simon R Green. I think the only reason I have gotten this far with then is I was given the first eight and I was bored. I think I read a review that went something along the lines of 'Raymond Chandler meets HP Lovecraft'. Yeah, right. Green tries too hard to give his main character, John Taylor, a hardboiled Chandler spin but I think it fails. He manages to fill the books with his 'neat little' tropes that get dull after the third repeatition. I mean, here is the guy that can find 'anything' with his special gift and doesn't work over half the time so he has to rely on 'old-fashion detective work'. Also by his descriptions every thing in the Nightside is mad of MEAT and I think he's in love with the word. Like most 'Urban Fantasy' books I have read, the big bad in each book is more terrible that anything the hero has ever seen, until the next book. That gets old too. Mr Green needs to read the Dresden series. At least Harry doesn't go around killing gods like they are goons. I do admit some of his supporting cast is amusing, Shotgun Suzy, Razor Eddie, Dead Boy but they are pretty one dimensional but that is a Chandler character trait, right? If you have nothing else to read and someone gives them to you as a gift, waste a little time, other else...If I read "I opened my inner eye, my third eye, my rpivate eye..." one more time, I'll hire Suzy Shooter to take me out. Two out of five stars.
