That's a tough tossup. CLOCKWORK ANGELS is the one I feel closest to--I love the music, the story, the themes...and of course I spent so much time with Neil Peart writing the novel and now the comic series. GRACE UNDER PRESSURE, though, was one of the most influential. It inspired my first novel RESURRECTION, INC. (just reissued this month by ECW) and launched my career.
