This one is a bit speculative: Imager’s Challenge is the sequel to L. E. Modesitt’s Imager:, which is a fantasy novel that seems to be drawing its inspiration from gaslight-era French society. Sort of. Anyway, the first one was good, and it’s Sunday, so we replace And Another Thing… with it.
Well, you knew this was coming. I almost picked it up yesterday, but I can get it for roughly a quarter off if I’m willing to wait a few days for it. I did look through enough of it to assuage my main fears; the author took his assignment seriously.
So we say good-bye to Faithful: Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season, and hello to And Another Thing…. Please, God: don’t let it suck.
Didn’t this happen during the Great Depression?
Or am I thinking chupacabras? No, wait, that’s goats….

Hold on: there’s a new Hitchhiker’s book out? And Another Thing…, written by Eoin Colfer? How did I miss this?
Oh, right, because I never forgave Douglas Adams for what he did to his characters with Mostly Harmless. It was nasty, petty, and even cruel – and it was final, because Adams passed away so suddenly. It’d be nice to be able to get past that.
