What I bought – 14 November 2012

“You can’t be a pure nation anymore, like the French and Germans used to be. At the stage of technology we have reached, nations work only if they float in the larger world. And what you have in this part of the world are fossilized nations, dead societies that have yet to revive. There are a group of young reformers in our parliament, educated in the West. But Georgians only want heroes. These reformers have never killed, they don’t drink two liters of wine every evening, they don’t fight, they have no mustaches or daggers, so they can’t be heroes!” (Robert Kaplan, from Eastward to Tartary)

Something bad is a-coming! Is this a Spider-Man homage? Reed is going in for a surreptitious booty grab! Probably not smart to swim so close to the propeller like that Split screen!!! Run, Lola, runnnnnn!!!! Um, what? Stanley Kubrick saw this cover and said, 'Pffft.  It's been done.' Thor is heading off to the gun show! Brood, damn you! Really? It's glammatronic! MONSTERS!!!! Yay!  Over a year late! Old-school stuff! Pulpy! The final chapter!

What I bought – 11 January 2012

‘Once giants walked the earth,’ she repeated, emphatically. ‘Yes, titans absolutely, it’s a fact.’

Three mothers creaked and swung with expressions of fascinated absorption upon their smiling faces; but Raza Hyder took no notice, closed his eyes, grunted from time to time. ‘Now the pygmies have taken over, however,’ Bilquis confided. ‘Tiny personages. Ants. Once he was a giant,’ she jerked a thumb in the direction of her somnolent husband, ‘you would not believe to look, but he was. Streets where he walked shook with fear and respect, even here, in this very town. But, you see, even a giant can be pygmified, and he has shrunk now, he is smaller than a bug. Pygmies pygmies everywhere, also insects and ants – shame on the giants, isn’t it? Shame on them for shrinking. That’s my opinion.’ (Salman Rushdie, from Shame)

It's certainly an interesting trade dress Holy crapola He's totally going to pass out This looks like half of a complete picture, doesn't it? It's a not-cover cover! The tone of this cover is odd, given the subject matter MAKE OUTTTTT! Oh dear Would you like to see my ... helmet???? Oh, yes - the torn cover thing again Look at those thighs! Yay!  Serial killers!
