Since my last question turned into open rebellion against George
Hall, I deceided to stir up the masses again. My question this time
concerns the Indy novels "Sky Pirates" and "White Witch". Weren't
they awful? I mean, it was like Franz Kafka had written them. Those
of you too young to have read Kafka are the lucky ones. Like Martin
Caiden (the author of the afore-mentioned Indy novels), Kafka spends
dozens and dozens of pages telling the reader something without
ever actually saying something. Why was Caiden picked to write these
books? No offense to him intended, but it is obvious that he was
unfamiliar with the character of Indiana Jones. Indy was some sort
of agent for the government in both these books, instead of a mild-
mannered archaeologist by day and a thug-whupping adventurer by
night. And what about that Jack Shannon cameo in "Sky Pirates"?
These two books left me feeling confused and cheated. Anyone
agree? I sure would like to get Michaelson's two cents on why I'm
being unfair to Mr. Caiden. Thanks for your time, and sorry that I
sometimes ramble on too long. (But if I don't ramble, who will?)
