Three short films in one. The segment entitled "The Drop of Water" creeped me out in my younger days. The sight of the dead woman, damn! I could imagine her knocking on my door and me answering it.

Have to say that this is only my second read of The City and the Stars. I first read it decades ago before I ever read Against the Fall of Night.
While I’m on a Clarke kick for reading, The Sands of Mars is up next. I don’t know why but I’ve never gotten around to reading this one at all. One of the very few Clarke novels that have slipped through my reading list unread.

A couple years ago I stumbled across this third novel on the net. About a year ago I picked it up through ebay. But it sat a while. Other reading matters pressed. Then finally, just recently, I read it. The third in the trilogy, all these years later after having read the first two. It didn’t disappoint me at all. Yes, the New World trilogy is one of the best fantasy trilogies written.
Yeah, soon to be over. I’m working on an episodic novel, and even with that, I’ve got a bad case of writer’s block. I’ve got a few things pending, ideas, outlines, partially written stories, but I really don’t care. I’m disillusioned with writing and the industry in general.
So, after I finally get around to completing the episodic novel, that’s it. My experiment with writing my own material is over. I suppose this blog will be relegated to films and novels I like.
