What up everyone! Just finished reading Leviathan's series (a 3 day binge).
This community seems really cool!

So, I just finished reading the series, but I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. And truthfully obsessing over it quite a bit. For instance dying to be in the world, that is Leviathan, and I was wondering if that happened to anyone else.

Thanks! ;D

The books will do that to you :D they never really get out of your head. We don't talk about them much here anymore [just because we talked about them so much back in the day] but we're all still fans ;D

Hi nice to meet you. I'd suggest going through old topics  in the levithain and the meet-ups sections before you make any new  discussion threads because there's been a lot of questions asked and answered multiple times about the books.

Elmo, and welcome! Ahh, the old book hangover, such a great feeling ;D You should read the Manual of Aeronautics and Scott's other books if you want more Leviathan-ness. And of course there's always the fanfics, and this forum :P

Also there's a bonus chapter to Goliath on Westerfeld's blog.
Just search, " Goliath bonus chapter" and it should show up in the archives.
