Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 258 comments I've read all the fiction and seen the canonical film, War, Inc. The three doctor books sit on my shelf following a failed attempt to make of them an Xmas present for a young relative. But I'm not overeager to get to them, but inevitably I will one day.

Brian | 8 comments Have read everything except "Let's Play Doctor"; TSFN was a let-down. My fave collection is still MC,MG.

Nathan - does any particular story or novel stand out for you?

I think Et Tu, Babe would be my favorite. I like the Nutsack a lot, but I'm prone to digging over-the-top ridiculous stupid things.

MJ Nicholls (mjnicholls) | 211 comments Wow, an extremely slim biblio that is. I should think the humour books would tarnish the completism somewhat.

The Doctor books are just stupid. But, why not stupid? He took a number of years off in order to become a failed screenwriter, and thus my inclusion of War, Inc., the only thing that made it to the screen. (Or, should include War, Inc.)
