Weber, I have Mark Richard's Fishboy though I admit I never got round to reading it. Is it good?

I feel sure Ramsey has The Thickening hence that enigmatic smile.

I've never got round to reading it either. It does sound intriguing though.

Nice idea, Weber. I'll get back to you.

I've just started dating a High Priestess of Thelema so my hands are a bit full at the minute.

I'll switch Fishboy for Team Rodent by Carl Hiaasen - a rather good polemic on the subject of the Disney corporation.

What's "The Thickening"? I can't find anywhere. Some old chapbook, I surmise...
