The Sandman Vol. 7: Brief Lives continues. What could possibly go wrong?

Come Wednesday night, Schilling and Glyph will continue their recappery of the next two chapters. Oh, and if you thought it was good so far? You ain’t seen *NOTHIN* yet.

(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. The current plan is to finish off Brief Lives (chapters 7, 8, and 9) on Thursday.

    • All three?

      If you guys are sure.

      I trust that when our next change comes, it proves easy on us.

      • Glyph volunteered to do two of them, but I expect that means “time permitting”. Anyway, we’ll do either two or three on this Thursday, and in the former case finish the next Thursday.

        • Yeah, very much “if time permits”. But I suspected that if I was rolling I’d want to just finish the story.
