Metaphorically, you're correct. But, literally, it's about a common old-time carnival-state fair act called, yes, "the wall of death" which was basically a motorcycle velodrome deal where the motorcyclist starts off on the level going around and around a circular track, but as he picks up speed actually rides the wall. The faster he goes, the higher on the wall he rides. Centrifugal force? I don't know. Any physicists out there?

Knowing that bit of info should clear up a couple lines that otherwise seem kind of strange.

Now Reading: After taking out a few minutes to read HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, I'm now back to Susan Cooper's THE DARK IS RISING sequence (Currently on: THE SILVER ON THE TREE)

Now Writing: It's a secret until the official announcement at the end of August.

In the Publisher's Pipeline: A graphic adaptation of George R.R. Martin's "In the House of the Worm" for Avatar Comics. But "Mortality's Strong Hand" is also knocking at the door.
