You knew the show would be bad when it was announced on that network and had a bunch of the Hercules/Xena guys working in it.....such a goddamn shame.

My hand loses grip of the sword I hold, And I turn to become a true shadow.

I've got a friend that's been pushing that series for awhile now... Forgot about it. I think that may be the next reading project I dig into when I'm ready for a series. Looking into Needles' suggestion currently.

Which one? The Sirens of Titan?

Because, yes, do it!

Dug into Joe Kane's "Night Of the Living Dead - behind the scenes" book the other day. Interesting read to see how this black-and-white horror classic came to be.

Finally got round to starting Game of Thrones and I'm really impressed. Despite being a really long book I'm racing through it, which is especially surprising for me as I've seen the TV series and already know a lot of what is going to happen. Talking of the series, it's really nice to see how much good material made it to the screen, not just the scenes but the particularly good bits of writing.

It's pretty good. I kind of liked it. Sure, it's way more of a gorefest than the movie. Lot of name and branddropping, obviously.

You should just start reading, and if you don't like it after a chapter or two, three, put it down, because it maintains that same flow throughout the entire book.

Really enjoying this series too. I like how each chapter is structured from different characters perspectives is great (even if you do develop a favourite and feel let down when the next chapter isn't one of theirs ;d)

its interesting how each characters knowledge differs when it comes to whats going on and how they learnt of it and what they want to do about it, and how all of them interact

That's definitely one of the really compelling things about it. I keep reading way past when I intend to because I hope that the next chapter will be from the perspective of my favourite charcters, which I would say at this point are Tyrion (obviously) Ned and Dany.

Tyrion yes =), Jon Snow and Arya are the other two for me. I did find myself sighing if the page turned and there was the heading of Caitlyn or Bran at the top of the page, quick, read through it fast and see who is next

though some of the characters are sleepers, I could indifferent to them for ages and then they might come into their own

2019. Humanity has witnessed its greatest scientific breakthrough yet: the cure for ageing. Three injections and you’re immortal – not bulletproof or disease-proof but you’ll never have to fear death by old age.

For John Farrell, documenting the cataclysmic shifts to life after the cure becomes an obsession. Cure parties, cycle marriages, immortal livestock: the world is revelling in the miracles of eternal youth. But immortality has a sinister side, and when a pro-death terrorist explosion kills his newly-cured best friend, John soon realizes that even in a world without natural death, there is always something to fear.
