Every day I’m titlin’

I was really excited to see that new movie Annihilation, starring Natalie Portman — except apparently not that excited, because the interwebs inform me that it came out a month ago, and I didn’t even know.

Anyway, yesterday I picked up the novel Annihilation that the movie was based on. It’s good so far. It’s also part of a trilogy, which surprised me for some reason. I was thinking that a title like Annihilation is hard to top. Where do you go from there? What do you call books 2 and 3? You’re bound to disappoint. (Indeed, the actual titles — Authority and Acceptance respectively — are a bit of a letdown.)

I was talking to Betsy about all this yesterday, and she quite disagreed with my assessment on sequel titles. In fact, she thought of a perfect title for book 2 in a matter of seconds.

I present it now in its full glory. Are you ready? Prepare yourself, if you dare, for…

You might see something cooler than that today.

But I doubt it.
