Some of those sound interesting (not Dickens ... and probably not Keats). I never knew about them. Thanks. I'm not sure I always count the comic book reboots because the creative talent may have changed and it's more a re-imagination of a archetype. I guess I still struggle with the concept of the better. I am not sure I could read something one author wrote and compare it to a later revised version and really pick out what makes the later one "better" (assuming it is better). I don't know. It's something that fascinates me.

I know that writers often say these things and I know that it is a real feeling but I wish (inwardly) that they would illustrate it. Really, Mr. Tolkien? You would have written that all differently now? Can you show me? That, to me, would be interesting and illustrative.

Dude, people are freaking nuts. I was wondering if there was any weirdness like that when I read your last post about ComiCon and you said you had to walk past all the people camped out or whatever. I think you did the right thing. I don't even think I would have held my tongue. You're a better man than I, Wil Wheaton.

There goes Wesley Crusher again - saving the day with some innovative idea that no one else thought of. Freaking nanites.

So, this will betray my utter ignorance but if I want to buy this for my Kindle, which format should I purchase it in?

Maybe I'm an idiot but I just don't get it. I know that you go to a lot of comic book conventions and events and I know that you like and enjoy gaming and that you are very public about it but I don't know if that is the same as advocating for gamers. I am also not sure that speeches delivered to what I presume is an audience of probable gamers is advocating so much an attempt to guide other gamers..... I tend to think of advocating as someone attempting to change the minds of mainstream culture and/or people on the other side of the debate or even folks that are undecided. Often I would put what you do into the column of preaching to the choir, which is not a bad thing. It's good for people (lots of people) to be told not to be dick. But I just do not see it as advocating. I would not question your loyalty to or love for gaming. I only wonder if what you do is actually advocating or just being a public figure who is actively involved with gaming (which can, in and of itself) help remove the stigma. Just my thoughts.

Ok, so this probably makes me an idiot but how can a game be beguiling and horrible? Wouldn't beguiling mean that the game play was alluring and highly attractive and horrible would mean ... the opposite?
