  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    I'll just add this comment to the current discussion, and then I'll back off because I really don't want to get involved: I'd really like to be able (or for people in general to be able) to talk about Israeli...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    So many questions, so little answers......
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    How far are you going to dwelve in the depths of paradoxes? How many time has history been rewritten? By whom? How much can Forecasting Ops understand about this before being forced to self-unestablish? How and how much is actually...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    I found the description of what happened to Imp and Eve's mother GENUINELY DISTURBING, although it was to be expected since we all know what GPM was up to (even before they escalated to TDB levels). It's different when you...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Charlie, just logging in to remind you (amongst all this crazyness) that you still didn't publish a crib sheet for The Labyrinth Index. You asked me to remind you about this on another thread, so I'm just complying, no pressure...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    Never read "Palimpsest" until now. Now I did. I understand (for varying definitions of "understand") you much better....
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    >> OTOH: Charles, what about the crib sheet for The Labyrinth Index? > > I thought I already did one? > > If not, well, remind me next week. (Right now, am writing.) Reminding. But please do it only if...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wigner%27s_friend anyone? Where does exactly a "quantum system" ends? If I observe you observing a cat in a box, who exactly is collapsing the wave function? The concept of "observer" is totally tricky......
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    Charles, > Opticians > Dentistry > England/Wales only > GP appointments, hospital visits, ambulances, surgery, hospital stays ... nope, no co-pays This we take for granted. Here in Italy too. And I think that's good, but who am I to...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    OTOH: Charles, what about the crib sheet for The Labyrinth Index? It has been out for a while now, and the next book in the series (for variable definition of "next book in the series") is out now. Time for...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    Guys (and girls if any), please don't forget about a basic thing that anyone tends to ignore. This planet is several billions years old. Our species is several hundreds millennia old. And yet, we only know anything at all about...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    > Safari under Big Sur still behaves in an interesting fashion with sign ins here Same thing with Edge on Windows, being logged in or not seems to be quite random....
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    > If "Case Nightmare Green" is what happens when "the stars come into alignment", doesn't that suggest that someday > they will again go out of alignment? If so, they must have come into & gone out of alignment previously...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    > "Overtime" Which marks, on a totally unrelated note, the first appearence of Forecasting Ops and their ability to retroactively unestablish themselves if their existence would lead to a terrible outcome. And then somewhat exist again after the terrible outcome...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    > there is some rather fucked-up shit in the background: the universe of the Laundry Files is constantly retconning itself. As the comment immediately before clearly demonstrates ;) See also Forecasting Ops and their not-so-stable existential status. Hope to get...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    > Let me retcon this Never underestimade the Sacred Retcon Power ;) Anyway, that part was deeply scary and unsettling. Much more than some already-infested generic thugs hunting Persephone or Bob. The whole point of my comment was kudos for...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    Quoting: >She blinked at him. “You mean, they literally planted something in her? Like what, one of the lesser daemones?” >“Yes, exactly that. You can see it in her mouth when she eats—she’s avoiding the dentist, did you know that?”...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    > Eve's mother hasn't had communion with the tongue-eating thing, she's very much > a member of the outer congregation. Hence the gradual brain rot. I'm sorry? She actually HAD that thing in her mouth! And quite for a while,...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    And then, of course, there is the giant elephant in the room, the story about magic having actually existed in the past and then having disappeared some centuries ago for unexplained reasons, only to make its comeback now; and the...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    What I found truly horrifying in this book was what happened to their mother; we already know how Schiller's church operated and their way to make converts, but we always seen only the end result (possessed fanatics) until now, not...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    I'm not a native English speaker but I'm generally good at it; however, I really can't really decypher the title of the book: what does it exactly mean? There are at leat two ways to read it: - (someone) dead...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    > As hard as I searched, I haven't been able to find prior mention of bite marks? I noticed that, too....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Not admitting defeat and lots of fanatics followers (with guns). Hope this goes down well, but it really doesn't look good......
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    > One possibility is the Senior Auditor's story Now THAT's something I'd love to read. (Not that I don't love reading everything else, of course. But the SA is some serious s**t.)...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    ...and while we are at it: we have been told for several books that summoning the Black Pharaoh is quite difficult (presumably requiring complex rituals and lots of sacrifices), cultists have been working on it without results for years if...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    Makes sense, and my usual explanation is "the cultists didn't know what they were doing"; also, just re-checking TFM, and the ones actually talking about how awakening the Sleeper is a step in reaching the Black Pharaoh are Panin and...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    (That should have been "six years", obviously)...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    Also, Iris might have been used as an agent provocateur, but by in TDB she is clearly a follower of the Black Pharaoh. She actually WANTS him to rise to power, thus I don't think she was faking it when...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    Yes Charlie, I noticed; and I also assumed that people woshipping Elder Gods might not have a really good grasp of what they are, what they want and their relationships. But I still find it totally contradictory that in TFM...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    A thing that always puzzled me: in TFM the cultists were trying to summon Teapot in order to free the Sleeper, and there was a discussion about how they were NOT goind to summon the Black Pharaoh, but the Sleeper...
