RE: Readings



Stephen (and all),

Have you also read "The Forge Of God," by Greg Bear?  If not, I could lend
you my copy.  I love it, particularly the ongoing universal fight between
good and evil.  It reminded me a great deal of John Bryne's take on 
Galactus
(from Fantastic Four).  I hope that I haven't stretched the threads of this
topic too taut.

Ciao,
