      The two extra colors. There's just no way to show that on screen.

      Abskolutly. In particular, *first person* books are different.

      I once said to another fan that if she and I were each dropped into
      Hollywood with $100 million and godlike authority, we would each
      make the ultimate John Carter movie, but they would be different.

      I STILL think you've got the coolest Greens I've ever seen. I STILL
      don't if they would work as quadrupeds. Why don't you lobby
      Paramount to hire you, and I can find out for the cost fo a ticket.
