I'm about to dive into book two of Nowhere Girl, a [positive adjective]webcomic that was plugged by Warren Ellis in his /. interview, itself a fun read for his reactions, and the stuff about Patrick Stewart.
Neal Stephenson's next novel, Quicksilver now has a release date: September, 2003, and a website. It's volume one of a trilogy called the Baroque Cycle, and the website is at http://www.baroquecycle.com/ . The excerpt I mentioned before is up on the site (well, part of it is. I think the version I read was longer.)
I'm on chapter twenty-something of Broken Saints (lost my place). And I need to chase the other webcomic that Ellis plugged down. Oh, and here are two more: Acid Reflux, in which a young female God gets a hand-me-down universe from her spoiled older sister, and he (Irving) has indigestion. Very funny. http://www.acidrefluxcomic.com/ and PvP, a funny strip about gaming and geekiness http://www.pvponline.com/ (which I found through the author's worshipful review of X2, linked by .. er, one of you. Both strips seem to have free archives online, so read from the top, enjoy, and then send money.
Are the elephants under the turtle, or on top of it? Trying to answer that question resulted in me geeking out with some patrons at the restaurant, and finding the location of an embroidery shop (across from Sharian), and the latest stop for the SciFi Mystery Bookstore (Shallowford and 85). Eventually they had to go, and so I went to see if there was anything to deliver. That thread leads directly to the previous post, so I 'll just say I made eleven bucks and got a half-tank of gas for ten of them.
