  1. The Justice League book should be listed as SILVER AGE, not GOLDEN AGE.

    I thought the key message of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was that Pirsig had dissociative identity disorder. [Oops, spoiler!] Or maybe that was just a literary device.

    Mark, I’m your biggestest fan in the world ever just for mentioning Dark is the Sun, let alone enjoying it.

    Any idea why, in iTunes (Canada), this isn’t showing up? Last episode listed is 58.

      I dunno! I’ll check with the powers that be at Apple. Thanks for alerting me this, robdobbs.

    Jeez, after 20+ years I had mercifully forgotten all about The Number Of The Beast.

    Thanks a whole lot, Fraunfelder.

    I remember reading “Number…” in the early 80′s. I didn’t make it past the first 2 or 3 chapters it was so bad.  I just had a positive experience re-reading a book from my childhood, though;  the Merlin trilogy by Mary Stewart (Crystal Cave, Hollow Hills & last Enchantment).  Best take on the whole Arthurian legend ever.
