    I am sure Terry Pratchet is well used to his ailment by now... all the same it must be blooming frustrating for someone with such an imagination though
    My respects go out to old Tezza

    For a normal person it is to me the worst condition possible, to be robbed of your memories and who you are, for an author of 37 books based it must be a form of living hell.

    I will listen to these linkys abit later, weird people are normally interesting.

    i wouldnt judge him on V for Vendetta, apparantly the novel is a million times better AND he always insists on dis-associating himself from the movies as he apparantly does not like his name being used.

    Ive not read any of his stuff but have a couple of mates who are huge fans and often waffle down the pub! :devil:

    Didn't it take him like 30 years to write a porno comic?

    Alan Moore is a legend. They're destroying another of his graphic novels to make some cash later this year when they release Watchmen...

    The stuff he writes (From Hell and Watchmen especially - though again, awful on film) is absolutely fantastic and far beyond what most people expect from "comic books". I well recommend giving him a try if you're never read his stuff.

    although i suspect you may end up being right, when did you get chance to watch and then review the movie? :devil:

    Zack Snyder is being very faithful to the comic ! Some scenes are exactly set up like the comic and i'm guessing after seeing the trailers the dialogue is straight out of the comic !

    Apart from the whole thing about changing the ending (i.e. who lives and who dies) and the biggest part of the plot?
