    LOL, certainly make for a better story than mine.

    Some day I plan to write about my baseball career. I was never a pro or even a minor, but I played in a lot of equivalent leagues with some pros and minors. I was raised an athlete, who wanted to write stories. Funny how things changed only because of a delusional coach or two. Someday, but this year is already shaping up to be a busy one. It's good to have the plate filling up nicely.

    Well, Futureworld isn't as good as Westworld, but it's still pretty entertaining. And I can boo hoo over the oddest scenes sometimes. The interesting thing, 50 people can be slaughtered in living color in front of my eyes and I might flinch, or say "oooo" or think it was overkill -- but one animal walks on that screen and stubs their toe and I am a bucket of sobbing goo. I'm not sure what this says about me. I know it's a movie, and I do care about people getting hurt, just not as much as an animal.

    I get the same feeling/reaction with the last 10 minutes of Close Encounters of the Third Kind (from the first time I watched it in 1978 at the theatre through to the last time I watched it in September last year) ... Strange

    I am the same way. I got so angry and offended watching Supernatural last night when the guy killed the dog....but not when he killed all the "chubby" girls before that.

    Don't watch this film!

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068772/

    I've seen it under the English title "The Hunchback of the Mogue." In the climatic scene, paul Naschy is carrying a torch to light his way through the tunnels under the city when a cage ro rats gets loose and startle him. they catch on fire and go scurrying everywhere! It wasn't supposed to happen, so the scene show the rats actually on fire! It was banned in the US for a long time because of that scene.

    Actually, it's a pretty awesome scene; but with today's regulations, that wouldn't happen.

    In the author section down there, how were these authors chosen to be so prominently displayed?

    Pretty much the authors that people were talking about when the forum started; Dan separated out some threads from the general discussion section and formed the authors section. PM Dan if you think another should be added.

    If Cemetery Dance were to do another Bentley Little limited edition, to follow The Mailman, which one would you like to see?

    Good question. We used odd names for the editions of Book of Horrors, as it was a weird combined deal with PS Publishing and the number of sheets that all the authors agreed to sign was an odd number. So somewhere along the lines someone decided to call the Limited Edition a "Bookshop" edition. Then the addition signed by more than just the editor and artist a "Deluxe Edition". At least that's how I understood it.

    So its there's nothing different about it? It's just the book signed by the editor and the artist? Bookshop made it sound like it was different in a bad way to me. I don't know why but it did.
