I don't know WHAT you're talking about. Re-read my message. There's nothing in there at all calling Stephen Baxter a lesser light. :D :D :D

The Last Wrestlers by Marcus Trower. A fantastic read, an eye opener and not what you expect :dance:

Reading nothing at the moment. I finished the book I was reading this morning as I was expecting the postman to bring me the new Bernard Cornwell. :evil: He'd better bring it tomorrow or there'll be trouble!
