Re: Answer as you please

Okay, correct me if I'm wrong, but you're asking if the described lines of reasoning are all conscious or whether OSC details the subconscious ones as well? I think it rather depends on the character, but (I never thought I'd say this, but) it's been a while since I read ANY of the books. It is stat...

Re: PEOPLE: DROP IT WITH CARD'S VIEWS ON HOMOSEXUALITY PLEAS

Except OSC isn't making any money off of ticket sales from the movie at ALL. While Card won’t profit directly from movie revenues, the author continues to earn money from sales of the original book, which has soared to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List "Ticket sales" being the operative...

Buggers and Zombie Movies

I was wondering about what it is that makes zombie movies so scary (to some).

No movie or TV show seems to freak me out anymore so I thought back to the la...
