Tales of the Dying Earth
Posted by iggir in literature 9 years ago
another great series...some sci-fi, some fantasy, some Zork.  
 
From one classic of the genre to another. Jack Vance's Dying Earth series is set in the distant, remote future when technology and magic have become entwined. His stories are tales of humour, tragedy and whimsy set at the end of human history, and are among the most distinctive tales in fantasy fiction.
The unique and highly accomplished erotic art of Anthony & Fanny Christian.

Never have I seen as many people walk out of a movie as I saw during a Saturday showing of “Watchmen.”  
 
It’s hard to say exactly when the trickle became an exodus – but maybe a quarter of the theater walked.  
 
Indeed, it appears this phenomenon is not unique ... An extensive report on Popten.net described “mass walkouts” of a New York screening; and corey3rd on hollywood-elsewhere.com claims one-third of his audience bolted, too.
What follows will be a practical guide to urban homesteading. In our troubled times, it would seem prudent to have a "plan B" in the event our modern conveniences should temporarily cease. Besides, by learning to "DIY", you'll cease to be part of the fat, pathetic, SUV driving, "American Idol" obsessed zombie hordes that plague our once independent nation. Now, We're not some gun-toting libertarian nut-jobs and the tips we suggest will always be in the spirit of neighborly cooperation. They'll be no holing up in bunkers here waiting for some imagined Armageddon. Rather, we'll be casting aside the dependence we all seem to have developed in our fragile (hello Katrina), modern world. Now let's get started.
