A Combination resource-dump, workshop, and virtual commonplace book all rolled into one.
whoa! A Grimjack reference. Excellent post, by the way. :)
Thank you. It's always nice to find out that someone is actually reading this stuff.I'm still holding out hope for a Grimjack movie...but it'll probably never get off the ground.
A varied and as always interesting group of prisons. To your overview of literary prisons, I'd add the prison you don't know is a prison (like the Matrix), or puzzle prison (like Cube).
Hi Trey: Thanks. You raise a couple of very good points. The puzzle-prison tends to pop up with some of the less reputable synthecosms like Pel Nog. Puzzle-prisons are sort of like obstacle courses in a way, so I've been thinking of them more in terms of athletic fields, places used for competitions amongst professional and amateur escape artists, code/safe-crackers, and assorted other rogue-types.The Matrix, or something diabolically similar is out there in Riskail, though the machines aren't really using people for batteries on an energetic basis as much as they use them for establishing a dreamscape...the custodians not ahving the capability themselves...then there are the mememazes and the en-crypts of the Gnostechs...Hmmmm...better get that next post written...
