Name: Jes Bickham Source: unca20080731.htm Ah, man. Algis Budrys. We shall not see his like again. I read far too little of his work, but Who? and Rogue Moon (or, properly, The Death Machine) blew the back of my brain out when I first read them. What a loss; and his work as editor and teacher passe...

Gotham Knight

Name: Jes Bickham Source: unca20080731.htm JOSH OLSON: We received a review copy of GOTHAM KNIGHT yesterday. Watched it last night; naturally it brings to mind THE ANIMATRIX, in terms of style related to subject matter, but - to quote our gracious host - I only loved it. I thoroughly enjoyed your s...

Name: Jes Source: unca20080731.htm Just piping in 'cos of the brief talk of Dalton Trumbo. I read Johnny Got His Gun in my early teens, when I was still forming myself as a person (hell, does it ever stop? maybe when I'm 80 I'll know who I am), and it's one of several works I discovered at that tim...

Name: Jes Bickham Source: unca20080731.htm HARLAN - Thank you. That means a lot. (And leaves me a little lost for words!) And don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I'll always be here, reading with interest the words of my Webderland chums, and occasionally poking my dome above the parapet. If you e...

Joke

Name: Jes Bickham Source: unca20080511.htm OK, this doesn't help Barney in the jokes stakes, I don't think, but every time I see it it cracks me up. It's from, I think, Revenge of the Pink Panther, and it's something of a holy grail of humour in the family; me, the parents and the siblings all find...

Apologies for being remiss in not sending any for you - ain't nothin' more than me being an unpardonably lazy bum. Hope you and Susan are well. Steve, cheers for ...

De-lurking momentarily

Name: Jes Bickham Source: unca20080219.htm Oh, Shagin - not to detract from any seriousness that has arisen from the situation - that is *magical*. Bravo! But you know what really punched me in the sternum? This: "The kid... that will spend hours researching the anatomy of large land mammals to fig...

Hill, again

Name: Jes Source: unca20071217.htm Faisal - that'll be the story 'Pop Art', which is the finest short story I've read in years (about a boy who is inflatable. Yes, I know how that sounds). Hugely affecting. I'd be very interested to see your friend's film of it; done right, I reckon it'd be a heart...

Hey all, No offence at all intended to Alejandro, but I would take the Daily Star's predictions with a pinch of salt (however, from what I'm hearing, some of it may indeed be true). Only because it's the Daily Star, mind... having said that, what a fantastic finale that would be! I'm very much looki...

Hey Steve You're sooo right. I literally had to pinch myself when I was talking to her (you know, I was in love her when I was little. I'm sure I'm not alone in that). And get this; I spoke to her publicist the next day, and Ms Sladen had said... "He was a very charming young man." I could...

Sarah Jane

Hey Steve I'm currently enjoying The Sarah Jane Adventures more than Torchwood, which I have a lot of problems with. It's definitely for kids, but surprisingly mature and moving in its presentation of relationships. The first couple of episodes feature probably the poorest aliens of the new Who (try...
