    having a kid certainly helps with the age thing. I find myself a bit more youthful, acting at least, now that I have to enterain a 10 mos old. I'm just a big ole clown to him, or a big toy, or a waiter, or a remote control. At least I get to watch cartoons again, even if they are all weird, strange, and devoid of violence...
    It ain't braggin' if you can do it. . .

    Yeah, the youngun makes you feel younger, until you have to start chasing him around. Then it evens out again. And as far as the cartoons goes, buy some DVD sets of the good stuff. I've got my 4 year old in love with Droopy and Bullwinkle, and the great old Warner Bros. cartoons. Right now it's Tweety, but I'll get him switched over to Bugs and the Roadrunner/Coyote in time.

    I voted mainly on story. I'm not impressed by flourishy prose; in fact, I find it obnoxious. I like a good story and even in horror fiction, I get irritated when the story doesn't make sense. Anyway, I didn't originally vote for many of the final 10 so I wonder what I'm missing... help me out!

    thanks

    Well, I don't like flowery writing, because I think it sounds like you're just trying too hard to be a good writer, but I do want it to flow nicely so it's pleasing to read. Story is another main component to my selections, and I also want a believable dialogue. Something that doesn't sound like it came from a cheesy soap opera.

    Mine saw the first one... I think she forgot there was more. Lets just say that I won't be the one to remind her. Especially since I got her to start reading The Dark Tower and Song of Ice and Fire.
