We’ve started reading The Sandman Vol. 7: Brief Lives. What could possibly go wrong?

Come Wednesday night, Thursday morning, Reformed Republican will recap #43, Brief Lives – Chapter 3. We need a recapper for Chapter 4.

(If you absolutely positively have to talk about some major spoiler in comments, please rot13.)

It has also come up that some wish to have a place where they can yell “DIBS!” I suppose this is as good a place to yell “dibs!” as any. (One should also keep in mind that just because someone yelled “DIBS!” on your favorite book, the one that you were hoping to recap, know that you can still submit one. We’ll read and argue over that one too.) Dibs, so far, behind the cut:  

Katherine wants #53, Hob’s Leviathan

Reformed Republican wants #54, The Golden Boy

Ken wants #55, Cerements

Ken wants #56, World’s End

Alan Scott wants #75, The Tempest (schedule permitting)

  1. You know what? I’ll do Chapter 4. That one is one of my favorites.

    We need recappers for the rest of the story, though.

    • I’m quite enjoying this volume. Feel free to sign me up to fill any holes in the schedule.

  2. By the way, does Delirium remind anyone else here of anyone else here?

    • Do you mean a certain commenter who cycles through succession of different but similar names, and whose comments often have only a glancing relevance to the topic at hand?
