What I like about "Head Games": Steve Lyons' excellent prose, the awesome cover, the twisted use of the Land of Fiction, and the amazing use of Mel...proving that she had far more potential than what was seen on screen in 1986 and 1987.

What bothers me: everything that I love and loathe about the attitude of "The New Adventures" at this time. On one hand, it takes the mickey out of the novel range's cliches, and examines its flaws in much depth. On the other hand, it revels and celebrates those same characteristics...and gives the middle finger to anyone who disagrees.

End result: a completely mental roller-coaster ride -- a novel that is VERY easy to like & appreciate, but VERY hard to love unconditionally.
