The Gone-Away World

A blending of Catch-22 with The Wolves of Calla, The Gone-Away World started fast, drug a bit in the middle, but once the twist was revealed (granted 400 pages in), I couldn't read fast enough. Harkaway combines humor with the very real feeling possibility of what we might be doing with our world. While a fantasy, this gone-away world could and might easily exist.

I hope the writers of LOST will ignore this one because if the Island could do what Stuff does we might never sort things out. Still it's fun to speculate on what Stuff might to do oneself. In the meantime I hope Gonzo and crew will continue to hold the pencilnecks of the world at Bey. Ninjas beware!
