I think it was Books: SciFi. But I'm not sure exactly. It wasn't used much of late..

Hm, my reply to Natalie's post of 4/20 never netted -- and now is lost in pixel limbo. Natalie, want to give me the address of that discussion group?

Which one, l'etranger?

I assume you mean LordPeter, which you can subscribe to by sending mail to either LordPeter-subscribe@egroups.com or at the egroups webstie (egroups.com).
I also happen to be the Keeper of the FAQ for the list (and a thankless job it is, I must say), and the url for it is http://www.crosswinds.net/~nluhrs/LordPeter :) We're starting discussion of the entire Corpus by internal chronology on June 4.
I'm known as Miss de Vine on the list, btw. :)

The list of book stores in the Yellow Pages seems to be the same. Even with thei-net, libraries and book stors have a sense of community. You simply can't get the smell of books from the net. Tho, gross sales have increased in the industry, the margins have dropped. Just like everything else.

Just finished HANNIBAL today. A good read -- perhaps not as good as RED DRAGON but nonetheless I enjoyed it. The movie is slated to be released 2/14/01, which is Valentine's Day, 10 years exactly from the date that SILENCE OF THE LAMBS was released. Thankfully, Anthony Hopkins will be returning to play Hannibal Lecter again. Clarice Starling will _not_ be played by Jodie Foster, but instead by Julianne Moore (you may remember her as the artsy daughter in THE BIG LEBOWSKI). I think she's capable of kicking ass in the role, though frankly I was counting on J.F. to reprise. Apparently Foster is in the middle of directing another movie and couldn't do it. They are currently filming in Florence, Italy (I know this because a friend of mine just got back from there).

The book takes some good turns and has an unexpected ending. Oh, forgot to mention, Gary Oldman will be playing Mason Verger. Ha.

I hated Hannibal. I found it to be poorly written and the ending was completely telegraphed, as was every single other gross thing that happened in the book.
That and I didn't like the gross-out fa ctor--way too high for my tastes. I won't be going to see the film.

Out of all her movies, you chose The Big Lebowski as the one to mention her for? :)

Haha, well, I thought it was an interesting role for her... with her flying through the air naked, throwing paint.

I bought a book by one of my favorite current writers, Joanna Trollope. This one, just released in the US (she's English) is "Marrying The Mistress." Seems fine after one chapter. I particularly like her "The Men And The Girls" and "Other People's Children." She's a fine writer in a different style, a wholly modernized version of a 19th century style.

Well for starters Amazon is almost as evil as Bill Gates.

I dunno. I think Wal-Mart is a greater evil than Amazon.

Just wondering if they're rare books aquisitions are worth the trouble or if it would be better to find a respectable rare books dealer to hunt down what I'm looking for.

Oh, if it's rare books I've had better look with www.bibliofind.com.

*smiles* Thanks, I'll check it out. :) I'm currently researching Egyptian religion, specifically Isis and her temple at Philae, and I'm finding that most of the in-depth books that appear most promising are out of print.
