Books I Have Read 1992

Read in October 1992:
The Terrible Tiger by Jack Prelutsky (aloud to Tony) [This was one of my favorite picture books as a kid and when my school closed and had a booksale, I made sure to buy it. Alas, someone else had already acquired the one about avocados and how they should be referred to as alligator pears]
Elektra: Assassin (graphic novel)
Cages #2-6 by Dave McKean (comics)
Beanworld (graphic novel)
Bill & Ted #12 (comics)
Dreamworld (again) [I have no recollection of this book or comic or whatever it was]
The Barsoom Project by Larry Niven
Swamp Thing (graphic novel)
Man-Eating Cow #2 (comics)
Fail-Safe by Eugene Burdick and Harvey Wheeler
Doom Patrol #39, 41-61 (comics)

[Interesting writing exercise. I think perhaps the first round was in class and the second at home with the music of my choice, but I'm just guessing. I wouldn't have had the Cosmos soundtrack cassette tape on my person, I doubt.]

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
