Thomas Pynchon all the way! None of those other authors wrote books with Zeppelins in them!

I eagerly await the forthcoming Against The Day RPG from one of the British IP licensing powerhouses (Mongoose, Pelgrane, or Cubicle 7).

There are really quite a few of those I've never even heard of, including the mysteriously-monickered second favourite.

If I had to put money, I might put it on Roth on the "he's likely to peg out before too long" basis.

I didn't think an American would win after the comment last week that their writers are all too parochial but Kadare is still made of fail, it's gone to the 14/1 shot from France, Jean-Marie Gustav Le Clézio, a cheese-eating surrender-monkey with a girl's name.

TWO girl's names. But he does live in New Mexico, so he at least speaks English.
