Give yourself a week to digest the story, look back at things..

Settle your mind...then start on Zombie..

So much stuff happened in Ripper, and so much happens in Zombie that you may start crashing stories together..

Yes they all follow on from each other..
But so much happens, that when you read later books you end up thinking..

That didn't happen ..where did that come from?

Just a thought..


Sound advice i'll agree but a week without Slade, surely you jest :mrgreen:

I understand where you are coming from though, these books have a lot to take in, i find myself going "oh yeh so that's it" and so on...too late though, i am 100 + pages into Zombie already :thnx:

J.B.

Now is the time to re read Ripper, Zombie, and Shrink, because the above question shows your like me and read them too fast because you get caught up in the story and miss the little nuances...

I tend to read the book at least twice..directly after the first time, because once you know what the end game is you can take time to really read it..

Especially with the books coming up..

Just a thought..

And yes i cheered at Napoleon...

Dreab my fine fellow you are right once again ha,ha.

I seem to remember Corkscrew getting knocked out by DeClerq, then in hospital under 'John Doe'...and, and, damn can't remember :oops:

Apologies, see what i mean, inane questions :P

Haven't got time to go through it all but this is the part i mean...

"HUMPTY-DUMPTY..."

Humpty-Dumpty was the name Special X gave the man with the fractured skull. While he lay in a coma in Lions Gate Hospital where surgeons worked frantically to patch his broken head..."[i]


Could suggest a possible return ?

Every now and then I see a character and then we never hear from him/her again. It happens in fiction I guess. Can't tell everyone's story.

That's funny. I'm amazed at how much you do remember. If you forget a character/moment I can understand why. There are so many over the years it'd be difficult to keep track of them all.

He was an interesting character, just wondered if he was going to pay Robert back for breaking his skull... :)

Corkscrew's sudden demise after his elaborate backstory and build-up is one of my favorite moments in the Slade canon. Napolean rules!

It kind of sounds like it might be time to compile a Slade Compendium of Characters and Other Odds and Sods for publishing, a la Diana Gabaldon's Outlandish Companion.
