  I was a little dissapointed by the finale, as it seemed as if Sutter made a last second attempt to create a sympathetic "good guy" out of Jax. Let's face it; he was a criminal and a cold-blooded murderer, and said as much himself. It made sense to spare the club the pain of having kill their prez to appease the Indian Hills charter, but I would rather have had Jax go down in a hail of police gunfire and blood spurting bullet hits; live by the sword, die by the sword. His death seemed a little too Christ-like for my liking, as if he could wash all the blood from is hands with this one selfless act of poetic self-destruction and redemption. I much preferred the end of Tony Montana in Scarface; say goodnight to the bad guy!

I think the selection will be the same as the Warner paperback editions, but I am unsure. The scattered short stories collected in the Nightshade editions that were not featured in the paperbacks don't appeal to me a whole lot, as they seem inferior the rest of the tales. For collectors who must have EVERY tale only. I hope that if the stories and novels are 5 seperate books like it sounds, that it will come as a boxed set at a reasonable price- time will tell...

Looks like the three novels and the two short story collections will be republished by Centipede Press next year in hardcover with all new artwork. However, it also looks like five separate volumes as well, which brings up the issue of price. How much are we willing to part with to have these books? I would love these on my bookshelf, but already have all of the Warner paperbacks. I was really hoping for a two volume set, but we will see how they are priced when they come out. Or, maybe I'm just being cheap...

JMR is right; the first film just rocked our world, while the second film, possibly the best of all six, just could not match that first exposure to Lucas' vision. I love movies today, I really do. But the 70's and early 80's were a magical time for me at the movies. Here's hoping JJ can recapture some of that magic.
