A copy of neuromancer has now been ordered. I expect to spend a couple of days or so reading and then re-reading it.

Must he really?

He, the actor portraying him, the author, the books, the fans, the merchendise, the culture, the people.

All.

Must.

Burn.

Yes, Watchman is a bit expensive. The trade paperback is at almost 300kr, I believe, which equals about £20. But I already have it. And I have an electronic copy.

In fairness, Harry Potter is pretty crappy, but fun.

Either way, I am of the firm belief that someone should assassinate JK Rowling before the 7th book is released.

Nah.

What would be really funny, though, was if she did an Anne Rice and started to believe in the bullshit anti-Potter christians believe.

Of course, the effects of her doing this, beside millions of rabid fans never getting to know the end of the Potter books, could well be more negative than funny.

I could finish Harry Potter 7 in about 6 pages.

Harry finds Voldemort.

Voldemort kills Harry.

Voldemort establishes a reign of terror over the world.

END.

Seriously, if it ended like that, I would offer sexual favours to Rowling.
