Stuff

Well, it looks like my long posts have now become notorious even in the world of webcomics. Heh. With that in mind, I shall keep this post teeny-tiny, with just a few things to say.

Like:

I missed this when it first came out, but it seems Lisa Tuttle had some nice words to say in the Times (yay!):

... Duncan has real linguistic flair and The Book of All Hours has the aura of a cult classic, to be argued about for years

And:

If you haven't already read Vol. 1 of OCTAVIAN NOTHING by M.T. Anderson, go read it now. Just do it. It's fucking excellent.

And just for a bit of randomness, a cut-up-and-fold-in of a Bjork song:

venus as a boy

he's a venus,
he believes, the
wicked beauty
of her humour.
he's a venus,
he believes. the
boy suggests they
taste her beauty
on his fingers.
he's a venus,
so exciting
in his touches
of her beauty
he sets sense as
accurate in focus as a
boy off in arousal, as a
boy exploring sex. he's venus.

as a boy, he's venus.

***

See? Now, that was dead short.

Yeah, I've bought Vellum & I have to congratulate you, fabulous!

Now I'll have to rearrange the other writers in my Pantheon as to make more room. So there.
