Anything posted in a public forum is a legitimate target for criticism. I don't have to be a reviewer myself in order to point out that you were wrong. Anyway, when did you suddenly become so sensitive? I know you're having a hard time getting your first job, but....


It's not a mistake, I clearly know that the insemination was artificial, I refer to it as such later in the review. I referred to it as 'forced incest' in sentence highlighting the over-the-top crazy elements of the series, and as such referred to it in as snappy and over-the-top crazy way I could think of. It was a bit of creative license.

I'm not sensitive, all you seem to do is nitpick other posters, not just me, you come in and pick up on one little error and criticise them for not being spot on all the time. And now you bring in personal remarks about my job situation? Stop being such a smug pedant.

I've seen you personally attacked over and over on this forum by numerous posters. I've never seen you react like this. I wondered what had changed and assumed it was your current lack of employment. No offence meant.

Hooray for Franken-Castle!


I'm thinking my budget might allow me to get this next week, but I'm not sure that my local comic book shop gets it in. If I can, I'll participate with that review.

Thank you Troy for the sig

Well, I wasn't about to be the first to post about that missing zero or he might attempt to smite me in his righteous wrath!

Really? Are you still trying to claim that "Forced Incest" wasn't one? :?

It wasn't a mistake. I clearly refer to the actual mechanics of what Nemesis did later on. I was painting out the concept in broad strokes at first, phrased in a shocking way as part of a sentence focussed on the shocking elements of the story, and then filling in the full details.

And either way, the result is basically incest, the child that is born will be the result of the exchange of sexual fluids between siblings, the result of incest.

You're just being a pedant, as I said.

As I've already said (and I'm not wrong) incest involves sexual congress between siblings. Since no sexual encounter took place, there was no incest! My original point was that you underlined this error by repeating it in the next sentence. Now I think you are arguing for the sake of it.
As you say, nothing you write will ever appear in the New York Review of books, so I'll just leave it at that.

What happened basically amounted to incest, you can nitpick all you want, but it's true.

And I never said I'd never be in the New York Review Of Books, just that this thread wouldn't! :twisted:

Well if there was no incest, I don't see what the parents are so up set about. Cheer up grandma & grandpa!
