CNN (cnn.com) is reporting that one of my all time favorite writers, Stanislaw Lem, has passed away. I was probably 10 or 11 when I found a copy of Solaris in my dad's library and was absolutely blown away by it. Being fortunate enough to live in a town with a really good public library and the libraries of a Research I school, I sought out his other work and was just amazed at the depth and vision of his work. He was truly one of the originals and will be sadly missed by fans of thoughtful, thought=provoking, and creative literature.
RIP Mr. Lem

Spiderman in FF has intrigued me, but if it ends like Spiderman in New Avengers then it will be Peter in the background cracking the occasional joke when really if they put their minds to it anyone of the roster could do that job.
