Born in Alabama in 1968, James Marshall was a highly imaginative and introspective child blessed with a pronounced sense of confusion. Unable to read, he quickly took to television, absorbing endless hours of cartoons and science fiction programming ...
and refusing to play with other children in the neighborhood. By the age of five, he was a TV addict and unhappy with the prospect of attending kindergarten. Afraid of interacting with other children, the name Dalek came to beborrowed from his favorite British science fiction program, "Dr. Who"as a shield to hide behind. Its hard to say how Dalek got to where he is today. He really doesnt like to talk about it. So whats left? What are Space Monkeys? Where are they from? Are they born alive, or are they incubated in egg-like vessels? Why do they smirk at us as if they know something we dont? Why do they always march to the left? Is there a mother ship calling? Are their hearts situated on the left side of their bodies like ours? We can only guess. Even when they are suffering from what would be moments of human weaknesslike a hole in the head or a recently amputated limbthey continue to smile and stare, assuring their control of the moment. They stare at us with one large orb of an eye, unintimidated and steadfast in their mission. The eye of the Space Monkey can threaten like a cocked and steadied gunit can insult you without warning, or invite you into a happy, carefree world. In Sonic Order of Happiness, Daleks second monograph, we are once again whisked far, far away, to a place where Space Monkeys reign.
