Another day, another columnist from the days of yore. Today brings us the entire, 14-installment run of The Lion’s Toes, a humorous, post-modernist take on the game of Diablo II and the people who play it. This one ran from late 2003 into mid-2004, and reading over them tonight I had quite a few laughs. Plus, b.netters being b.netters, most of the jokes are as topical now as they were 4 years ago. (And 40 years from now, I fear, when nubs will be teh suxor on our satellite-linked, virtual reality corneal implants.)

    Author Biography

    Leon (AKA Robert McGrath-Kerr) is a university student in Canberra, Oz.  Only 19 years old, he has absolutely no long-term or short-term memory to speak of. Remarkably, he achieved this without the aid of drugs, and would be rather proud of himself if he could only remember where he left his pants.

    He enjoys reading and sleeping, and he thinks kittens are wonderful. His ultimate goal in life is to live in a house made entirely of fudge, while making lots of money from his awful attempts at fantasy literature. His sanity is only occasionally questioned.
