Phoenix, Merlyn, Patriarchs and Colonels

This weekend, I am finishing the fifth Harry Potter novel -- The Order of the Phoenix -- and I think I'll shed a few tears over The Book of Merlyn.

But mostly, I'm going to be leafing through One Hundred Years of Solitude, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Autumn of the Patriarch, No One Writes to the Colonel... 

and other stories.

I've always been more sure of Gabriel García Márquez than of magic realism.


  1. I think you need a better test to keep the robots at bay.

  2. actually, tw, we forgot and left the draw bridge down t'other night. steve finnell apparently snooked in whilst we was unawares.

    he has bot-like tendencies, though, i'll admit. i figure it was "patriarch" that drew him in...

    smooches galore and cat paws your way!
