That puzzled me for a moment also, but I've adjusted the filters to allow it.

That reminds me of the time I was posting a note on another board about a recent book by Michael Moorcock, and had it appear as "Michael Moorthingy". Very baffling for a few seconds.

Hmm...  Son of a pregnant dog isn't exactly what he said.  I forgot for a moment that this is a rated G forum with filters.  Smiley

A bit off the subject, but speaking of the Princess Bride...  Mandy Patinkin's portrayal of Inigo Montoya was absolutely superb!

Inigo Montoya:  Hello!  My name is Inigo Montoya!
                         You killed my father!  Prepare to die!

Count Rugen:    Stop saying that!

Inigo Montoya:  Hello!  My name is Inigo Montoya!
                         You killed my father!  Prepare to die!

Count Rugen:    No!

Inigo Montoya:  Offer me money.

Count Rugen:    Yes.

Inigo Montoya:  Power too.  Promise me that.

Count Rugen:    All that I have, and more!  Please!

Inigo Montoya:  Offer me everything I ask for.

Count Rugen:    Anything you want!

Inigo Montoya:  I want my father back, you son of a
                         bitch!

That's great! Although I've seen him in stuff lately, and he looks quite different than he did in Princess Bride--not nearly as svelte and raffish.

Jennifer Connely is a great idea for casting Sylvia.  Any ideas for Howard?  I'd always pictured Stoat as looking like the actor Cary Elwes.

I recently ran across some paintings by an artist named Dante Gabriel Rossetti.  The name caught my eye because, coincidentally, I had been re-reading some passages from THE PAPER GRAIL, and I remembered that Howard, upon his reuinon with Sylvia, is reminded "of a woman out of a Rossetti painting".

Well, here's a nice little collection of Rossetti works to give you the idea if, like me, you were unfamiliar with the reference: http://www.artunframed.com/rossetti.htm

Actually, the reason I was perusing that particular book  in the first place, was specifically to find descriptions of Sylvia.  I had just seen a movie starring Jennifer Connelly, and thought she would be wonderful if cast in a film adaptation of 'Grail.  Not really a Rossetti type, but I'd still love to see it.
