I don't think Grendel Rex is involved in this, if only because that plotline would probably have been leaked into the Nightside and Ghost Finders as well. At least I think it would have.

I wouldn't be surprised if this has something to do with the metaplot being unleashed in Ghost Finders.

I'll do what I always do: hope Lilith doesn't come back and that Hadleigh Oblivion makes an appearance. Although I have to say, I am really hoping that somehow Harry and Roger manage to come back from the dead! I really did like those characters, they added a lot of flavour to the books. And they always made me laugh :)

I was going to make a comment along the line of "Mr Green sticks to his dead characters", but then thought of the Demon Prince. And Owen Deathstalker. And Tommy Oblivion. And even King Harald to an extent. Oh hell, my argument has no legs to stand on. :-P

Simon's afterlife is fitted with a revolving door. . .

Transient beings can't die. It's in the contract. ;)

I have to admit, the revolving door policy some people have on the afterlife gets a touch irritating. Death has much more meaning when it only happens the once.

@ Steve: omg yes it so is!

@ Alyndar: and Larry Oblivion, and Coffin Jobe, and a whole slew of Frankenstein's creations, and Kim :)
(I'm sure I'm forgetting "people" here)

Heh, if you have ever played D&D you should check out the webcomic Order of the Stick. http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0001.html

After all, in D&D death is a pretty temporary setback too. There are a couple of great panels having to do with the revolving door into heaven that player characters get. And of course, there is a period of about 100 or so comics when one of the main characters is dead and they are trying to get the body to the cleric who has been separated from the party.

I had my galley copy last week and have just finished it....

Wow, best SH so far (but I'm hardly impartial).

And I have to say, I think chapter 9 is one of the best pieces of writing that Simon has ever done!

Am I right in thinking that books 4+5 haven't been released in the UK as print copies yet? Are they likely to be? I've read them in electronic format, but would like paper copies for my SRG shelves. I could always buy the US versions, but would quite like the covers to match.
