This is a return to form for The Prisoner fans, those who loved the s show starring Patrick McGoohan. A secret agent resigns, goes home and is gassed, only to wake up later in a place called The Village where everyone is assigned a number. It is a faux model community where everyone dresses alike, and it is impossible for a prisoner to tell who the warders are. There, the newly dubbed Number 6 is subject to multiple tortures to get to him to state why he resigned, with the ultimate goal of converting him to their cause.

However only fans of the show would enjoy this book, or fully appreciate it, as there are multiple references to episodes of the show none overt and several characters besides the Butler make brief appearances. The prisoner's dilemma is a standard example of game theory that shows why two completely rational individuals might not cooperate, even if it appears that it is in their best interests to do so. It is presented as follows:. Two members of a criminal gang are arrested and imprisoned.

Each prisoner is in solitary confinement with no means of communicating with the other. The prosecutors lack sufficient evidence to convict the pair on the principal charge, but they have enough to convict both on a lesser charge. Simultaneously, the prosecutors offer each prisoner a bargain.

Each prisoner is given the opportunity either to betray the other by testifying that the other committed the crime, or to cooperate with the other by remaining silent. The offer is:. It is implied that the prisoners will have no opportunity to reward or punish their partner other than the prison sentences they get and that their decision will not affect their reputation in the future.

Because betraying a partner offers a greater reward than cooperating with them, all purely rational self-interested prisoners will betray the other, meaning the only possible outcome for two purely rational prisoners is for them to betray each other. The interesting part of this result is that pursuing individual reward logically leads both of the prisoners to betray when they would get a better individual reward if they both kept silent.

And essentially this is the plot of the novel in a nutshell. Game theory seems to fit the series of The Prisoner like a glove. There have been three Prisoner novels in the past, but these were written in the s, and were cheaply rushed out. None had the proper feel to them. This was obviously written by authors who grew up on the show, was an absolute fan, and worked hard to make sure to do a proper appendage to the show.

Complete Omaha the Cat Dancer, The Vol.8

A horror series which goes hand in hand with the films. You decide. It is not a pleasant comic, nor one that fills a person with hope. It is essentially a story of the body horror genre, and as much as I doubted they could, the comic created just as much nausea and disgust as the films. The art, while not the most detailed, is still a grotesque ride. In this story, classic Pinhead, Elliot Spencer, and the new female Pinhead, Kirsty Cotton, finally get to see which is supreme when the pair must battle and team up in Hell.

As the former detective tries to adjust to his new life, he is besieged by constant assassination attempts by other Cenobites while his former human allies fight amongst themselves. Meanwhile, as soldiers from other dimensions encroach upon the Labyrinth, D'Amour is going to have to raise an army, whether he likes it or not, as the Lords of the other pits strike to invade the Labyrinth.

Labels: Graphic Novels , Horror. The orb of the sun was as close as the moon. An endless winter caused the soil to crack. The lands were riveted by parallel or starry trenches; tremendous crevasses, suddenly yawning, engulfed the things above as they collapsed, and one could see, moving toward them in heavy sideslips, long queues of glacial erratics. Marcel Schwob is not a name well known in modern literary terms- I have no idea why- yet he is one of the most vivid writers of the later half of nineteenth century French writers.

He has been called a "precursor of Surrealism", which I cannot disagree with. In addition to over a hundred short stories, he wrote articles, essays, biographies, literary analysis, and plays. He was extremely well known and respected during his life and notably befriended a great number of intellectuals and artists of the time.

Yet, he is all but forgotten….

Series by cover

But not completely. The 21 stories in this collection are primarily dark, grim tales, with mostly unpleasant endings. They range from slight fantasy, to grim modern, to slightly sci-fi. The stories are a cruel, almost sadistic, telling of characters trapped in an unforgiving world. The narration is cold, matter-of-fact, or lusty in thick details as we see above.

What will happen to his characters is up in the air, with a fifty-fifty shot that the protagonists will survive. Each paragraph is charged with poetic energy, placing him on par with Ambrose Bierce or H. The style of the stories are a little odd. Most of the material in it build-up to an event which then happens quickly, leading to a hasty end.

In fact, several of them almost seem to be completely background material for a larger story, which the author never wrote, or should have written. Like Shakespeare, by not having to focus on plot, the author is free to focus all his creative energies on his style. And it works out for the best.
