    1. Whew. Okay. It's good, obviously. It's also like wading through treacle. The entire plot is fragmented throughout the book, so you get the feeling that you're stuck inside all of it at once, without knowing what's what. It's about Cousin Eliza back when she was called Christine, and about Chris Cwej after the Gallifreyan military scrambled him. It's about Fitz Kreiner after "Interference," retroactively, and about I. M. Foreman's bottle. Or other bottles. Bottles are definitely involved. It's ab [...]

    2. The only book I've ever read which establishes canonically that Kenickie songs (and album tracks at that) are still sung in the 26th century. Not that I knew this going in. I read this because of the Time War behind the Time War (and I use the word 'behind' advisedly, given Miles' response to 'The Name of the Doctor' - like the Doctor, many of us have now seen terrible things in the course of the war, things we cannot unsee), because after the last Doctor Who season finale, I wanted to read the [...]

    3. As the forward by author Lawrence Miles says this Mad Norwegian Press reprint of his 1999 novel Dead Romance is really for two groups of people those who are Virgin New Adventures fans who missed it the first time round and those who've been reading the Faction paradox books. Well I fall into the first category having come into the Virgin New Adventures very late. I came to Dead Romance aware of its reputation as one of (or even the) best of that book range. So in short: Dead Romance is what Doc [...]

    4. I've been going on a bit of a journey through the works of Lawrence Miles after reading Alien Bodies and really enjoying it. My favourite author is Douglas Adams, and Miles really did feel like he had something distinctly adamsian about his writing. Since then, I've read Interference, and found it to be a pretty good romp with great ideas and abysmal pacing, and I've just finished reading Dead Romance, which I found to be a pretty good romp with great ideas and abysmal pacing. I wonder if this i [...]

    5. nwhytevejournal/2694932mlI don't quite get the immense reverence shown to Lawrence Miles and the Faction Paradox concept by the more literary end of Whovian fandom; on the other hand I thoroughly enjoyed this, even though it is a book in the series of Bernice Summerfield novels where she doesn't appear at all except as a personality of the far future, the Doctor appears only in distorted form, and the one continuity character is Chris Cwej. Paradoxically, this makes it a rare case of a Who book [...]

    6. So here I am at the prehistoric roots of Faction Paradox. This book is from 1999. It comes from the Virgin New Adventures line, at a point where they had lost the license to write "Doctor Who" books, but before Lawrence Miles leaped off into his own idiosyncratic "Faction Paradox" line. So it's quasi-almost-canonical but not semi-heterocanonical?But still idiosyncratic, of course.London, 1970 -- the Autumn of Love, as it were, with Charles Manson ranting in prison about the End of Days. Druggie- [...]

    7. i've read this book twice (perhaps three times) before - and i've now started again. three points:1) *fantastic* book. wonderfully written, incredibly creative.2) i am unaware of any of the related books. it has always been a stand-alone for me.3) previous readings have been prior to my introduction to lovecraft(ian) items. we'll see if anything that i didn't notice from previous readings creeps out from the shadows and surprises-- update 4/22/13: pausing the reread as bought 2 new books.

    8. WOW. This book was great. I really loved how the author made us think the book itself was going to be based on the boy built from dead parts, but it had so many twists and turns that we dont know what is happening or going to happen to the guy. Cant wait to read the next book!!

    9. Good stuff - astoundingly weird horror/sci-fi. Seems to be the basis for a scad of other novels, some of which I'm after reading.
