But thanks for the reminders!


This was in regards to Nuala, and I have to agree with what was said about it not being comparable to slavery. It actually never even crossed my mind when Hob/slave trade came up and Morpheus stated his opinion.

Ahhh.. I see why you desired muchly for me
to read this thread. I think that concept was put together through discussions in my FR. It sort of added up that way after putting together pieces said here and there... over there.

There is certainly some truth in Gaiman exploring his.. eh.. "lack of understanding" of some aspects of the feminine, lolol

Re: Gaiman's Sandman GD *spoilers after page 1*

Glad to have you joining us, WartyOne! Spoiler tags are utterly unnecessary after the first ten posts, which are al ancient history now.

Congrats on the greatest First-Read thread i've ever read! You raised the bar and altered my perceptions on what was possible from a FR thread. Extremely impressive!

I'm wary of going any further down the rabbit hole. I don't want to diminish or dilute the greatness of the series.
As far as i know, what you have, plus the Death books and the original run, is everything NG wrote in the Sand-i-'verse. The stuff that other people wrote is generally little better than fan fic. Some of it was okay, and i'm sure that there are people who eat up every little crumb they can find, but in my opinion, you have more than enough; you could skip Dream Hunters and never notice it, but since you have it, i think you'll enjoy it, especially the meal cooked by the Japanese master chef.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.
