John Donne's SONG is also in the front of Gaiman's STARDUST. These YA fantasy authors write great stuff, but they need to get a new poem. How 'bout a nice, dirty limerick?


Dude, was this book written for me or what?


I know. You'll have to let me know what you think. I had an issue with the ending, too, but I didn't want to go into it because hey, huge spoiler, and also because I feel like I might just be being too nitpicky.

As if that whole freakout about the floating-holding-hands-backpack-map scene wasn't nitpicky enough.


Well, nitpicky, maybe, but you do have to wonder, when you read things like that: where's the editor? If the unpublished masses like myself struggle to get every sentence perfect and every logical flaw resolved before we even submit, why does a published book that's been looked over by several pairs of eyes still have one-handed-backpack moments that bring the reader up short?

Does Dylan Thomas "rage, rage?" I will have to read it. Kind of like The Lightning Thief, kinda like The Chaos King, kinda like its own self. But the floating/one-hand thing is the sort of thing that I notice, too, and dislike.

For the Maya their underworld was the Xibalba, and at one point the Xibalbans enjoyed the worship of the people on the surface of the Earth, who offered human sacrifice to the gods of death. Over the span of time covered in the Popol Vuh, the Xibalbans are tricked into accepting counterfeit sacrifices, and then finally humiliated into accepting lesser offerings from above.
