the Russian cover art which Elena so generously
scanned in! She is living in Russia at present and has
the distinction of having read the sagas in both
English and Russian while Senda has read them in
English and Spanish...anyone else read the sagas in
more than one language? We have had a few discussions
on translation which were interesting.

'Where do I go to meet people who have read things
like this or think like this?'. A couple of years

most other authors!!

Damon plays a fallen archangel called Loki, who finds
a loophole in catechism which allows him to slip back
unannounced into heaven (with the unfortunate side
effect of mass carnage). There is a great scene set in
a car park where Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have a
major altercation, and Ben ends up turning on Matt
saying 'I've heard that rant before!' Matt looks all
innocent but Ben continues 'I've heard that rant
before! The Star of Morning -' and the absolutely evil
turn that Matt takes is very Marc, The Angel of the

he does do a convincing evil Angel? He doesn't really
have the physique ha ha
