> Let's see... what books would you like to see BAMmed?

I'm happy that Illuminatus! got it's treatment (strange as I really like that trilogy, but it really needed a condensation, and it was a fine condensation at that), and on that same note I'd like to see RAW's Masks of the Illuminati.

Actually, I'm REALLY looking forward to BAM Classics. I definitely want to see The Iliad there, simply because I was forced to read it in High School, and it remains the only book that I used Cliff Notes as a substitution for.

I'd also have to nominate Dean Koontz for condensation. He's only got like 3 characters (Wealthy, athletic male lead; wealthy, smart female lead; and crazed villian), and his books are so predictable it's pathetic. I may just try a "Collected Works of Dean Koontz" condensation myself...

You know what else? I enjoy seeing books I like being condensed more than ones I dislike. It's easy to mock crap, but to make fun of Tolkien takes some talent...
