“…or is it… THE WICKER DALEK, now?”
I sincerely hope not. I sincerely doubt it. As a title it might be cooler, and the immediate/associative “grab” would be more immediate (as well as definitive), but it would really change everything I’ve built and everything I like about the story I want to tell, it would twist the actual whole historical wicker into total whackiness, and one of the things I like about the story I’ve built is that it really would not get anything grievously wrong or offensive that might upset my genuinely pagan no bullshit friends and—
I really should not drool things like this.
But I never promised you a goddamn box of chocolates.
PS: It will not be THE WICKER DALEK.
PPS: Anybody have the Starlog interview with Lis Sladen from the early 8o’s? 82-83? Thanks.
PPPS: PAGAN DALEK is one week old today. It’s not done yet.
