Novel Composites


Twitter’s wonderful.  Of course for the ability for everyone around the world to disseminate information without filtering it through faceless agencies, and lolcats, but also I wouldn’t have found out about The Composites.  People with way too much time on their hands who use it wisely by putting the description of literary characters through police composite software.

And you know what, most of them are scarily accurate.  Just check out the Cathy Wilkes compo from Stephen King’s Misery.  Anyone else see Cathy Bates?

And my personal favourite…. I could see Kate Bush singing at him on a blasted heath.
