    I can say that, thankfully, I have no idea what that is.

    Yeah man. Have a seat on the sunken in couch. Or if you want, pull up a folding chair. You got any cold pizza, or anything to eat? Maybe a stale bag of Doritos?

    Interesting...

    Back in high school i was working for the maintenance department at school and was painting houses. I came across a bunch of old junk the previous tenants had left behind and found a beat up book from the Shannara series (The Elf Queen of Shannara i believe). It was one of the original hardcover copies i think but the cover was trashed and the edges had scribbles all over it. Fortunately later that school year i worked at a book bindery and had it rebound with a new cover and cleaned up for $7.

    I read the original series in high school. I think you mean The Elf Stones of Shannara.

    Nope, it was the Elf Queen (my memory was refreshed after checking wikipedia):

    Must go to public library. Even better idea. Why do I always think of buying instead of borrowing?

    Honestly.. I must admit to owning a rather massive collection of fantasy.

    I am a huge fan of Donaldson.
