Mike and 1 other person liked Leiera Monae's review of Saga #22:
Saga #22 by Brian K. Vaughan
" WARNING! Major ranting, raving, and plot spoilery ahead!

So, yeah. I got my copy of Saga today, and the tagline simply states: "The family will be tested."

Really?? Tested?? THAT'S what we're calling the shit these days?... " Read more of this review »

Georgette Heyer
“Lord Worth: 'I think you may be quite useful to me. The heiress has a brother.'
Captain Audley: 'I am not the least interested in her brother,' objected the Captain.”
Georgette Heyer, Regency Buck
tags: humor

Washington Irving
“He was tall, but exceedingly lank, with narrow shoulders, long arms and legs, hands that dangled a mile out of his sleeves, feet that might have served for shovels, and his whole frame most loosely hung together. His head was small, and flat at top, with huge ears, large green glassy eyes, and a long snipe nose, so that it looked like a weather-cock perched upon his spindle neck to tell which way the wind blew. To see him striding along the profile of a hill on a windy day, with his clothes bagging and fluttering about him, one might have mistaken him for the genius of famine descending upon the earth, or some scarecrow eloped from a cornfield.”
Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

“All four of them looked at Diane as if she had said Kendel had just returned from her trip and had brought them a unicorn skeleton.”
Beverly Connor, Dust to Dust

Georgette Heyer
“I wish to God I might induce her to mind me!' he ejaculated.”
Georgette Heyer, Bath Tangle
