Re: FOR THE XKCD-BAND: ch00n ideas

Not in the band, though I figured I'd throw in my 2 cents :D

My personal favourite has always been Jingo, followed closely by Night Watch and Thief of Time. Jingo is the most amazing book, even if it does get a little confusing towards the middle when the timeline splits.

If she feels she must, then she should have the choice. Yes, there are people who abuse this choice, bu...
