thought Princess Bride had a sequel

No, there's a chapter from the 'upcoming' sequel, but that's essentially all it is: yet another teaser for something that doesn't exist. It's a bit cruel that way. So good.

War of the Worlds.

What happened in the other parts of the world? America? Europe? Mars is dry, how did they do in the tropics? Or in the Arctic?

I honestly didn't think of that, but it would certainly be interesting. Although I did like how the invasion was stopped in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comic books (biological warfare, courtesy one Dr. Moreau.)

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP asks:

I was thinking about sequels after the news of a new Harper Lee book. Which stand-alone novel would you like to see a sequel for? I know sequels can suck, but some great books end too soon. Can I nominate Kipling's Kim, one of my favorite novels? Does he follow the lama to a life of quiet contemplation or join the Great Game with a vengeance? Your picks?

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
