    Whats your most creative method for Slaying mythical/magical beasts you've ever read in a book?


    Personally I'm very fond of the Vorpal sword Merlin uses to kill the Fire Angel in the Amber novels--Roger Zelazny--very creative use of an LSD hallucination. Its a knock off from Monty Python, I know, but brilliant that Merlin thought to rent it. Considering that the Jabberwock was scared silly of the thing, it was a good idea.

    Well, I liked the part in Glory Road where the monster ate himself.

    I'd forgotten about that one. Classic Heinlein twist, I think they'd really just intended to drown him, right?

    No, drowning wouldn't work, because the creature didn't breath.

    That would be a problem. I wonder if he left a bad taste in his mouth?

    yuk yuk

    Anyhow. I've always like Glory Road for the fact that it was a fantasy story--ith a Heinlein flavor. An unheard of combination, but Oscar was definitely a Heinlein hero and Star was definitely a Heinlein heroine. Good stuff.
