    Women in Peril, lol. That is funny. I just wrote a quick piece at my “other” blog, http://doomedtorock.blogspot.com about how the movie King Kong had a lot of racial overtones and an interesting attitude towards women. Women were always treated as fragile and in need of a man to help them out of any situation in old movies and comic.Stuff like this makes me laugh because, somewhere along the line, I decided that the main character of my novel had to be a woman. The character is not perfect but she is in no way fragile nor needs a man to help her with anything.I see that you have surpassed 75000 words! Congrats to you!

    Hehe, of course it’s a bit of an old-fashioned view on women. Still, I find these ilustrations interesting–perhaps because they go back to an ear when I couldn’t read or watch sci-fi, since I wasn’t born, so it holds a little bit of mystery and fascination for me.And thanks! It’s not over yet–will this beast end, I wonder!–but I’m getting there. I’m getting there.
