Groan :roll:

Miss Galore's "bust" not withstanding, Cathy Gale would have undoubtably blown him away with her leather clad curves.

Re: Drabblecast 150- Morris and the Machine by Tim Pratt

Loved this, proper, PROPER story telling. If this doesn't make top 5 at then end of the year I'll be amazed (there again if it doesn't how awesome are the ones that do going to be). Hats off, low bows and tumultuous applause for Mr Pratt for this one. Time travel, a cautionary tale, a love story and...

But, we certainly agree that it's some pretty darn cool and well-written fantasy that everyone should go check out. Insert plug here >> http://www.cowrycatchers.com << Thanks for the plug, ROU!

Bugger choice Denny exclaimed as he turned his machine gun on the polling station, I wants me an old style dictatorship. Not bad, but it's confusing due to the missing punctuation. Perhaps?...

Re: Coming up short, again.

Now I just need to squeeze Mein Kampf into 100 characters. :P
Hitler nearly managed it

"Four and a Half Years (of Struggle) Against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice" yet he still managed to get it all very wrong

("Four and a Half Years..." was apparently his preferred title for Mein Kampf)

Another piece of artwork with this one, so many richly drawn pictures. Some of the best imagary I've heard in a long time and like "Over the Walls of Eden" it just worked perfectly for me. As above it reminded me of the feel of "The Fiddler of Bayou Teche" from PC but if anything even richer in its ...

I loved this for all its wierdness. The idea that the grown up baby had hired him to find out who he (the baby) was, was good in itself, then the splendidly bizarre circumstances of his birth and subsequent escape from captivity just added to it. A fantastic new twist on the traditional Private Eye ...
