Plot synopsis:
In the 1950s, a group of young science fiction writers, dreaming of literary immortality and calling themselves the Lanthanides, buried a time capsule with their stories and relics from the time. Now, in the 1990s, when several of them have become famous, the surviving Lanthanides are getting together at a special convention to dig up the capsule and open it. But the convention is startled by the appearance of a writer who was supposed to have died thirty years ago. Then murder materializes to throw the agenda further into chaos. Now, Jay Omega, author of Bimbos of the Death Sun, and his significant other, Dr. Marion Farley, must separate science fact from fiction -- and unearth a killer with a story of his own to tell.

Book details:
Not the edition shown. Mine has that <-- wacky cover art.

What I thought:
While not quite as good as Bimbos of the Death Sun, this is quite fun. Recommended.

I found this one slow going like the Bimbos of the Death Sun. I did enjoy it - if only because I like mysteries and had a penchant for comix a while back.
Thanks for sharing Jaguar.
Happy New Year
posting book to Katayoun now.

Arrived yesterday - pretty fast, Katayoun! I'll probably get to it quite quickly - absolutely MISERABLE week at work so a nice escape from reality is perfectly in order.

30 March '05 - Well, I agree with the previous journalers: this one wasn't as much fun as "Bimbos", but it was a good read. I had some trouble keeping all of the Lanthanides straight...too many characters to keep track of makes my head spin!

tomsmama asked to be skipped (she already found a copy of her very own)

2 April '05 - mailed to Alysoun64
