Shannan Paul is a Minneapolis comic that has come up since I left. She is also a “classic dork.” Sci Fi, Video Games, movies and TV. We are still at Acme Comedy Company’s 20th Anniversary in Minneapolis. It’s another installment of talk to as many of the 20 comics celebrating that weekend to find out what they all dork out about. Enjoy.

    I'd say try THE STAINLESS STEEL RAT first, but there's only so much difference between them (the "Rat" is more of a con-artist/rascal)...and would point you toward his serious work...and maybe to such parodic pastiches as A TRANSATLANTIC TUNNEL, HURRAH! (His first profession was as a comic-book artist, btw...till he sold his first short story, "Rock Diver," to Damon Knight...)

    In the sad news of the day department, Pratchett has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's some months back, and is making preparations accordingly (including opening up options for assisted suicide in Switzerland)...Anne McCaffrey died yesterday, at home of a massive stroke.

    Hey...Harry Harrison knows exactly what he's doing with the likes of BILL, THE GALACTIC HERO...that's why they have such titles, much as with his STAINLESS STEEL RAT and grimmer DEATHWORLD adventure series...then there's Harrison's other work, such as "The Streets of Ashkelon" and MAKE ROOM! MAKE ROOM!, which was almost completely dumbed down in Hollywood to make SOYLENT GREEN.

    Pratchett is a HUGE bestseller in England...I don't think Rowling has quite caught up with him (their Stephen King with a different focus)...so not quite a niche figure, except over here.

    The Disneyfication of all the elements (and mixing all the Disney versions of these folktale and individual-creator fantasy figures, the latter represented by Collodi's PINOCCHIO characters, is a bit too...Disney...for my taste with ONCE UPON A TIME, along with the dancing around between the Evil Queen/grumpy Mayor and the bail agent/lost daughter/savior character. But GRIMM, I agree, is also flawed beyond my desire to stick with it, but watchable. Both better than such overpraised tripe as PAN AM.
