Prisoner novel by Thomas M Disch, one of three original ones published around the time of the first series. The other two were A day in the life by hank stine and who is number two by david mcdaniel, Man from Uncle author. Since then there has been another trilogy of Prisoner novels by Roger Langley, and two more official ones - The Prisoners dilemma and Miss freedom. All worth a read, Day in the Life bit existentialist! Like a Michael moorcock...
Love those books paula, Four in three and the Visitor also good TP ones

Was it a Man from Uncle novel that had a negative comment from the writer hidden in the contents page? About his editor, from memory.


I have all, if not most, of the Uncle books in my cupboard, as no doubt Paula has. Once I can fight my way into it I shall have a look.


I found my copy - Man from Uncle no.12 - "The Monster Wheel Affair". The first letter of each chapter title reveals the authors hidden message: "A. A. Wyn is a tightwad"!


Edited to add: It's no. 12 in the UK line but no. 8 in the US line. A. A. Wyn was the publisher behind Ace Books.

I loved Watchmen - even though the Millenium has come and gone, it still stands up as a superb graphic novel.

Just reading an old classic by Henry Rider Haggard, "Heu-Heu". Heu-Heu is a hairy monster, but unfortunately he bares no further resemblance to Og.

But then a guy appears with a "headdress shaped like the lower half of a soda-water bottle reversed". Well, I don't know much about 19th century soda-water bottles, but immediately a familiar image sprang to mind ... Smile

Then a shocking relationship is revealed: "She, the great Lady of my land and my cousin, is my betrothed ..." Shades of Inga? As a matter of fact, she is not the daughter of his father's brother, but the granddaughter of his grandfather's brother, but nonetheless "the race was dwindling, partly from intermarriage".

Why can't I read a 19th century adventure novel set in Africa any more without thinking of a bunch of other adventurers???

The funny thing is that until about three years ago, I never was into comic books or graphic novels. First one I read as a complete series was Preacher and it was only thanks to a colleague at work who had it Smile An interesting way how to start Smile But than The Crow got to me and it left me totally stunned so I moved to Watchmen now Smile I am only in the beginning. I saw the movie but I am definitely enjoying it more in the printed, graphic way Smile

Preacher is by my favourite writer Garth Ennis and he's done some other amazing works too.

But for someone starting out I'd suggest books like Transmetropolitan, 100 Bullets, Locke and Key, Batman: Arkham Asylum, All Star Superman, Punisher: In The Beginning, Criminal, Incognito, V For Vendetta, Astonishing X-Men (by Joss Whedon).

Those are all sorts of different genres and if you can handle Preacher you can handle almost anything Oops

Yes, I think that when I started with Preacher, I can easily read other stuff - by Ennis or by Moore Smile I am actually trying to get Hitman now.
I borrowed some older Avengers stories (omnibus collected from the old stuff) and it was incredibly silly Grin I just couldn´t get into it. But the latest Avengers (from Civil War higher) is much more interesting. But it is still a little dull when I compare it to Preacher or Watchmen which I am reading now.

Superhero comics didn't really "Grow up" until the mid 80's. But i do like all those older crazy/silly books because the just burst with ideas. My soft spot though is old X-Men and Amazing Spider-Man

The War of the Worlds Murder, by Max Allan Collins. Amazing blend of fact and fiction and an era recreated convincingly.

Klenotka, if you haven't already, I heartily recommend Alan Moore's "V for Vendetta", much better than the film.

Also, if you can find them any more, get your hands on "Warrior" magazine published by Quality Communications. It ran for 26 monthly issues before being stamped on by Marvel for running a strip called "Marvelman" (But they were not done for copyright infringement!) and was out in the early 80s. The quality was outstanding, not just of the artwork - which was better than anything Marvel were producing at the time, but the writing as well. Stories such as "Father Shandor, Demon Stalker", "Marvelman", and "Laser Eraser and Pressbutton" were the highlight of the month for me in those days.

Meanwhile, I have just started reading the latest Clive cussler paperback, and as soon as I have finished that, I have all 7 of the books that inspired Game of Thrones to go through, so that ought to keep me busy for a while.
"Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics, and you'll get ten different answers, but there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on. Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes…then all of this…all of this…was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars." Commander sinclair, Babylon 5.

Afterlife with Archie. I bought volume one and it was a lot of fun and very surprising. Its a Zombie outbreak in Riverdale.

And on the book front I have decided to give Fantasy another chance and also start a series thats finished! Its Dragons Wing, the first book in the Death Gate cycle.
