    It occurs to me that being Buck Rogers means enduring the night mare of space disco.

  2. Hey, I beat Tam!

    I was tempted to ask to be on this podcast, since I have a few ideas. Let me focus on an epic fantasy (since that would be a bugbear).

    I’d love to be in Kate Elliott’s Spiritwalker universe. Trolls descended from Dinosaurs? Glacial terrain to my heart’s content? Cold Magic (maybe I could *learn* Cold Magic.). Sure, there are revolutions and the Wild Hunt, but I could live there.

    Alternatively, being a Glamourist in Mary Robinette Kowal’s universe wouldn’t be a bad gig, either.

    • Those are great universes. I didn’t think of those. I know Malazan would be a brutal place to live… I just LOVE the history and how vast it is. I always though it would be a great place to experience until I got axed (probably about 5 minutes after I dropped into it).

  3. Not surprisingly one on my list would be Slippery Jim DiGriz, the Stainless Steel Rat. His future sounds fun, a bit dangerous, and with his wit, humor, good luck and beautiful (but deadly) wife, life would be exciting.

    I’ve always admired Richard in Neverwhere even though I cannot help but want him to get with the program much earlier than he does. I applaud Gaiman for writing a would-be hero that is so truly human that he resists it for so long.

  4. Damn. I didn’t hear my name at the end until tonight. I would like to be Captain Stagg from Philip Jose Farmer’s Flesh, which was just reprinted. Pass the fertility horns, please.
