    If you liked The Time Machine, see if you can't track down a copy of Before the Golden Age. It's a collection of 1930s-and-earlier Sci-Fi collected by Isaac Asimov, specifically stories which...

    France in the quarters is a must, I think. That'll have restored some national pride. With the way they've been playing I'd expect them to do well against this Germany side, even maybe be them and...
