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
(from Fantastic Four). I hope that I haven't stretched the threads of this
topic too taut.
