I have to admit that I’m looking forward to the new Thomas Harris. The Silence of the Lambs, to be conventional, is a much better book than Hannibal, but I think the early Lecter promises to be good material.
I’d recommend to all students of The Day the Earth Stood Still Paul Laffoley’s essay on the subject, “Disco Volante,” available in The UFO Show (University Galleries, 2000): 24-37. Yes, there is some business about an alien nanotechnological implant being discovered near his pineal gland. Treat that as you must.
