I'm gonna have to check that out, Matt. I've been wanting to read Lucifer's Hammer, Earth Abides, The Postman, and whatever other apocalyptic/SHTF books I can find. The Road got me into it. World War Z wasn't bad, either.

I'm seeing really, really bad reviews on the OSC novel, but the plot sounds cool. How is it?

Can't wait to get the LOTR set in the mail. I'll start with Hobbit!

Let us know how it turns out... I hope I don't regret canceling!

Now reading Confederates in the Attic...

Question for you guys - should I read Hobbit before or after I read the LOTR trilogy?

Finished James Joyce's Dubliners. Really, really enjoyed it! Took me a while to get through A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, but breezed through the short stories with ease. Great, diverse characters in a very interesting time period (days of Irish Nationalism)...

Now I'm on Palahnuik's Diary. Chuck is really starting to bore me, all of his novels remind me of this little smiley,



I'm intrigued with the story, but all of the characters, all of them, are always woe-is-me, whiney and bitchy, and they all seemingly have the exact same thought process and dialogue. What was wonderful and original in Fight Club was sort of familiar in Choke, but now its just worn out...

I've got a few books headed my way.

Thomas Paine's Common Sense
Washington's Secret War: The Hidden History of Valley Forge
Boone: A Biography
The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Boxed Set


Also on the shelf is Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, Cornelius Ryan's A Bridge Too Far, and the remaining two volumes of Shelby Foote's Civil War Narrative.

Yeah, and Luke's "oh ****" expression looks even worse standing next to Vader. I've got a stormy, but I'm really wishing I had a second to flank him. That, and I don't like the look of Piett, so I'm really regretting SSC didn't do a better job with that.

Maybe Governor Tarkin will make a good companion? Or a pair of Royal Guards?

I hope you're able to convert, too. I knew that Vader, if he was done half-right, would have an enormous presence on the shelf... I had no idea he'd be this good, though. My biggest complaint about him is that he's too tall. SSC Vader is 3 inches taller than SSC Bespin Luke - I don't know if that's because Bespin Luke is too small or Vader is too tall, or both, but they can't stand too close without Luke (and several others) looking ridiculous.

Frank Oz is one of the main ones I'd love to have, but I'd hate to spend money on a photo and a pen, then wait a year to maybe get a returned photo.

There are some minor inaccuracies with this guy, but the piece as a whole is by far the best thing from SSC yet. Right up there with Old Ben.

You know, if I was fishing or swimming and I saw that thing... I'd probably have a heart attack.
