Dead Men's Trousers = DMTSomeone who knows him told me IW had got bang into DMT recently. Seems to have left quite an impression. I'd sort of given up on his stuff, but I got both Blade Artist and DMT over the weekend. Blade Artist is not the worst book I've ever read but it's certainly in the top 10. This new one is an enjoyable romp though, although as DP points out, some parts are taking the piss somewhat. Amazing how these old pals/enemies who haven't seen each other for years all seem to be in the same countries at the same time, often within a 20 minute car ride of each other at crucial moments. Anyway, I am being churlish. These are great characters and they leap off the page and dance.
