This post a day was my suggestion so I guess I ought to answer it. I asked “which book would you like to spend a day in as an incidental character?”
I would most like to visit the planet of Dune and to watch the type of sandstorm that can strip flesh from bones, to fly over a migrating sandworm and visit a market in one of the cities.
I would also like to go travelling with The Doctor and see the universe, get shot at by daleks and see how long I can go without blinking when confronted with one of the stone angels.
If that sort of fiction appeals to yoiu then cam I recommend The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. The main character gets sucked into Jane Eyre. It is such a weird and wonderful world that it has to be seen to be believed.
At the moment I also wish I could have a walk around my steam city in order to get some inspiration!
