Somewhat confused

I picked up a copy of the SF Masterworks edition of Greg Bear's Eon today from Galloway and Porter in Cambridge. All good so far, but I had a strange reaction to reading one of the paragraphs in the first quarter of the book which finished

Wallace was attractive enough, but about twenty pounds overweight. She seemed perturbed about something.

I then had the overwhelming desire to type

> ASK WALLACE WHY SHE IS PERTURBED

before I realised I was reading a book.

Are there any differences between the SF Masterworks edition, and the old paperback? Eon's one of my all-time favourite books, and if there's been anything added to it, I'd like to pick up a copy.

Also: Good call on Equilibrium. I think it's a fantastic underappreciated little film.

I'm not aware of any differences between SF Masterworks reprints and the original imprints; I don't imagine there would be any.

In fact I don't think the SF Masterworks are even re-typeset, just lithographed of the old edition. The only change with some of them is that they are compendiums, M John Harrison and Gene Wolfe for example.

Dan, You've played one too many immersives i think ;)

Eon's a great read. The sequel Eternity is pretty good as well. However, the third in the series, Legacy - a reworking of Heart of Darkness - was pretty poor I thought.
