What's more powerful - the imprint on your mind from a book or a movie? Reading Black Juice, short stories by Margo Lanagan, (note her blog to the side, Among Amid While), the kind of characters and stories you think about after the book is closed. And just saw I am Legend which probably had more visual impact for me just because I know the (NY) city - if it was in Los Angeles like the original novel, would it have had the same impact? It reminds me of Jurassic Park, we came out of the movies in Wilton, Ct (very quiet) and could almost hear raptors rustling in the leaves as we walked to our car. Of course, the main question is how am I going to go to sleep now that I've scared myself to pieces?
