Greg in July 2015, I hope long distance calling is included on my plan, because I want to get in touch with Ford Prefect, from Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (he could be anywhere!).

In his new novel, China Mieville brings Moby-Dick to dry land. The world of Railsea consists of continents and islands linked by train tracks (these are the railsea), and populated by frightening creatures (enormous mole rats, "greatstoats," meat-eating earwigs). (From NPR review. Looking forward to this one.)
