    OK then, let me rephrase this.
    I knew that with your finely tuned Wabbit senses (and your obvious expertise at polishing the old giggle stick) you would have little trouble sniffing out and responding about said Dick.
    Feel better now Wabbit?

    Iain Banks has been one of my favourite authors over the years, I especially like his earlier works. Other favorites are Toby Litt, Jeff Noon, Douglas Adams, and Charles Bukowski.

    Who's Phil, and why's everybody so concerned with his arse?

    I hesitate in answering your question mariner as I've vowed not to throw fuel on the fire (is this some kind of a set-up?) but I've got to live up to my signature and after all, you did ask.
    Phil is a legend in these here parts. And no one here gives a spork(still LOVE that word) about his arse....except Phil of course.But his ass, ahhhh.. it IS a thing of beauty to behold. Never before has there been such a magnificent specimen. You could search all the land and still his ass has no rival.
    Every hair in place, that perfect crack of a smile, those little dimples, what can I say? Phil's ass only comes along once in a life time.

    Tres poetic, RaVeN!

    Anyway, Mariner, you're a fan of Toby Litt?! Cool! Me too! I've never met anyone that also knew him. Which Litt-novel do you like best?

    Cheers, Martin :D

    To be honest, it's my least favourite. But still an enjoyable read.

    Cheers, Martin :D

    Corpsing is great! I've written a review here.

    You'll love Exhibitionism, I'm sure. It's my personal favourite, but, then again, I've always been a sucker for short stories.

    Cheers, Martin :D

    No way can I pick just one! I would have to pick a range which cover pretty much all my favourite styles and my favourite individual books. I seem to have quite different taste to the majority of people on here. A lot of people seem to like sci-fi or Spy stuff like Grisham...I've never been anywhere near those genres!

    *feels quite like the odd-one-out* :p

    Anyway my favourites (in no particular order) are:
    Alice Walker
    Maya Angelou
    Zora Neale Hurston
    Ian McEwan
    Armistead Maupin
    Elizabeth Berg
    Alice Hoffman
    Emily Bronte
    Martin Millar
