入手《宇宙尽头的餐馆》

终于等到天气不错的周末,抓紧时间去了一趟书店。

买了 Richard Dawkins 的《盲眼钟表匠/盲人钟表匠/The Blind Watchmaker》,不算是新书了。他的《解析彩虹——科学、虚妄和玄妙的诱惑》怎么也找不到了,是不是借出去了?

在图书城的科幻书柜找到了几本经典科幻作品,但是统统不全!
《基地》三部曲缺少第二部;
《沙丘》三部曲缺少第一部;
《光晕》三部曲缺少第一部;
《银河系漫游指南》也缺第一部…
还好《科幻世界》在正刊和译文版上有刊出过《银河系漫游指南》、《光晕》的第一部,所以我就买下了《宇宙尽头的餐馆》、《光晕:洪魔》和《光晕:初次反击》。

《银河系漫游指南》系列不用多说了,虽然不属于硬度十足的科幻,但绝对是可读性最强的经典科幻小说之一,冷笑话层出不穷的同时也回味无穷。今天吃晚饭的时候险些被它杀死…
另外提一点,Douglas Adams 曾经应邀创作了电视连续剧《Monty Python’s Flying Circus》第45集的剧本,而 Python 语言的命名正是取自 Monty Python,Spam 一词也来源于 Monty Python 的短剧。

《光晕》嘛,虽然我没有XBOX,也没有玩过 Halo,但其第一部《光晕:致远星的沦陷》让我沉浸其中饥渴地阅读了两天。那种实力悬殊,以至于让人深深地绝望的感觉刻画得非常好,即使主角的设定属于我不喜欢的超人精英。
《光晕》第一、三部的作者、翻译与第二部的都不相同,但愿水准也保持一致。

最后是附送一首讽刺天主教反对采取避孕措施的歌词,来自 Monty PythonEvery Sperm Is Sacred

There are Jews in the world, there are Buddhists,
There are Hindus and Mormons and then,
There are those that follow Mohammed,
But I’ve never been one of them…

I’m a Roman Catholic, and have been since the day I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics,
Is they’ll take you as soon as you’re warm…

You don’t have to be a six-footer,
You don’t have to have a great brain,
You don’t have to have any clothes on –
You’re a Catholic the moment dad came…

because…

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.

Let the heathen spill theirs, on the dusty ground,
God shall make them pay for each sperm that can’t be found

Every sperm is wanted, every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed in your neighbourhood.

Hindu, Taoist, Mormon, Spill theirs just anywhere,
But God loves those who treat their semen with more care.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed, in your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is useful, every sperm is fine,
God needs everybody’s,
Mine
And mine
And mine

Let the Pagan spill theirs,
O’er mountain, hill and plain,
God shall strike them down for
Each sperm that’s spilt in vain.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed in your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.

上面这一段不是最后啦,因为我忘了提到,今天有幸看到了田中芳树《创龙传》的中文版--那个封面让人吐血三升的版本。

虽然其他的《创龙传》配图也不是我喜欢的风格,但是这个封面…我只想说三个字母:OMG/Orz

《银河英雄传说》也据说要和郭敬明扯上关系,还让不让人活了?
