Hmm, maybe. There's a new issue of "Fables" out now, where Bigby stays in town, and Snow goes out to the farm, so I guess nothing will happen in the short term...

Incidentally, there's a discussion forum I've found, which might interest you (the writer posts a lot of comments there).

> Glad you're finding the course easy (toldyaso;) ).

*grin* I shall make a note never to doubt you in the future :)

> Whats the social life like at Kings? Nearly ended up there to do Pharmacy once.

Well, I haven't got involved in the freshers' week parties etc., but I've been up to the bar a few times - cheap food/drink, which is good. There's about 100 MSc students in my department, spread across the different courses, where some of our modules overlap, so I doubt I'll get to know everyone. However, I am starting to recognise a few people now, so I'm making new acquaintances. Looking around the student union, they don't have many societies that I'm interested in. In particular, there's no sci-fi society there, so I'll stay with ICSF. But I may go along to some events there at some point.

Bigby reminds me of someone but I cant work out who. Had a peek at that forum, is interesting. Did you ever read Midnight Nation?

No, I heard about it, but never got round to picking it up - I assume there will be a paperback collection at some point, so I'll wait for that. Mind you, Rising Stars is taking a *long* time between issues, so I'm not sure whether Midnight Nation has even finished yet. (Rising Stars has taken 3 years to get to issue 20...)

I think I have the first two issues rattling around somewhere.

Story was ok, the artwork I liked.
