What I'm Reading Now: Timeline of the Planet of the Apes
"Planet of the Apes history could very well be neither a circular loop nor an "A or B" set of divergent highway lanes, but rather a Mobius strip embedded in an Escher landscape twisted up in a pretzel and tied up in a sailor's knot, continuously looping back upon itself and enabling all of the various contradictory incarnations to occur on the same continuous, ever-changing loop."
-Rich Handley, Timeline of the Planet of the Apes: The Definitive Unauthorized Chronology (Hasslein Books; 2008), page xiv: "Changing Lanes and Curving Time."
