Hi huntress! Hi sparhawk! Merry Xmas! What I think is that the kingdoms and dragon books are his best works, the others less so. I did enjoy Journey Beyond the Beyond and the story collection but nowhere near as much as the others. RS's Stormjammers is heartfelt and highly interesting. Puzzle is good, fast, fun.

I wonder if RS ever thgouht of making these into novels? Maybe fans should start writing to him and asking about it. Didn't Ender's Game start out as a shortstory or such?
Silence reminded me of Philip K. D-ick in the way the theme is so haunting. I could see it in my mind so clearly. The underlying message about the death of language and culture and its effect on our world is an important one. It'd make a spectacular movie.

Stanek's "Silence is Golden" reminded me of Philip K D-ick in a way too. Very well drawn and I keep hoping he'll make it into a full-length work. "August Rains" is kind of haunting in its own way as well. But right now I'd list "Absolutes" as my favorite. Now that would make a great sf movie.
