Book of the Week: Silverlock.

I’m surprised that John Myers Myers’ Silverlock hasn’t been done before. Maybe I assumed that all of you already have it. If you don’t, well… be warned. You will be seduced into reacquainting yourself with Western literature. And it’ll be very sneaky about it, too.

To give you an idea of precisely how neat this book is: when it came time to do the introduction for the 1979 edition, Poul Anderson, Larry Niven, and Jerry Pournelle were apparently so adamant about doing one that the book actually has introductions from all three.  I’ve had three copies and worn out two; and I think that I still have some Amazon gift certificate credit left, so if you’ll excuse me…

…and AoSHQ reports that they’re apparently setting it up so that he’ll never hold office in Illinois again.

In light of that: Blagojevich likes literary references. I’m making one under the fold. (more…)
