Love it! I also was first struck with memories of the Tripods series when I saw the cover. Good nostalgia hit there with the 50s/60s sci-fi book covers which were still rattling around the school libraries in their tattered forms when we were growing up. Can't wait to order one of these!

Darn it Wil, you made me tear up and sniffle at work - and I've read these before! Good job as always!

Excellent job Wil, I hadn't realized it was 20 years already. In my opinion it seems the fight for basic human rights and freedoms has really taken quite a few blows lately, even in our own country. It's good to pause and remember.

Oh yes, this was me when I took the opportunity of a short line to get my copy of Sunken Treasure signed on Sunday. I was fan-girl witless! Poor Wil asked me who to sign the book to and for a moment I couldn't remember my name. I *should* have had him sign it to superpuppy, but I think I stammered something about Kristina-with-a-K. Cuz that's the me he signed it for. :)

I'm blaming you and the Penny Arcade D&D podcasts for my recent resurgence of role playing interest! I had the Basic set oh so many eons ago too, and spent a summer figuring out the rules, creating and running dungeons with my cousin (and doing things like forgetting in the excitement of the battle that one of our characters had fallen into a pit...). Some days I think I've sort of forgotten how to imagine new worlds like that and really bring them to life, and that makes me sad. I picked up the 4th Ed. Player's Guide last night and rolled up a couple characters. There's a group that runs a weekly game at the office, I think I'll start exercising my imagination again...

I just hope they don't overdose thousands of geeks on retcon, can you imagine the mayhem when anyone said "Torchwood"?
