Re: Final Round 12

This is sucking the joy out of this for me. I’m out. Have fun nitpicking this nonsense.

Re: Final Round 12

I think part of the problem is you can say you’re voting to get rid of SFF - AS I’VE SAID, A GOOD SONG - without acknowledging that it’s a status quo favorite choice whether it’s your favorite or not. It doesn’t mean giving a finger to the system so much as not agreeing with consensus.

Re: Final Round 12

As a joke! I mean, if these results actually caused a RS editor to have heart palpitations, sure, that'd be cool. But it's just us here, so giving the finger to those phantoms seems as lame as people who say they hate the Beatles because they're revered. Relying on those external cues are weird giv...

Re: Final Round 12

I trust the board to pull this back in the remaining time we have left. I threw in my vote (however reluctantly) to Revolution. One more gets a tie and re-run. Surely Crissdong can log in to help … I have no alternative accounts despite what Gutterpoet, sorry, Wolter says. If you look at that accou...

I don't care for most of them, but I don't hate them.

Re: Final Round 12

Maybe, just maybe, while SFF is great, not everyone thinks it's the best, and that's not so much an edgelord opinion as a regular opinion?

How has Revolution hung around this long!

I voted for DITL because I am determined we are not going to MOJO/Uncut/etc this poll.
I voted Strawberry Fields because it should’ve been eliminated last round.

Re: Star Wars Books for Free

Knew a guy in grad school who said that he put himself thru his BA writing porn fiction for Penthouse Forum and the like. He was a skilled writer (and a published novelist now) and he said once you understand the formula (like Silverberg's modules) he could bang them out in an evening. Conservative...

Re: Star Wars Books for Free

So bad the ghostwriter didn't want his name on it. “Nah George, you go ahead and take all the credit. I’m good. Just give me my $500.” The ghostwriter was Alan Dean Foster and has bad as it is, I’ve reread them within the last few years and Empire is worse. It’s bloodless and dull, without even a s...

Re: Star Wars Books for Free

I don't recall the other OT books, but I remember reading A New Hope and I found it dreadful. Like someone had obviously just given a copy of the movie to a ghostwriter and said, here, turn this into a book. It just seemed like a half-assed play-by-play of the movie, an excuse to get something onto...

Your sincere replies to that obvious joke prove that SFF fans are the fucking dorks of Beatle fandom.

Re: Star Wars Books for Free

While Empire is generally considered the best Star Wars movie, the novelization is by far the worst of the OT ones. I don't recall the other OT books, but I remember reading A New Hope and I found it dreadful. Like someone had obviously just given a copy of the movie to a ghostwriter and said, here...
