It is one of the few things I've written my wife likes. She would like to see me work it into a screenplay.
Thank you for this splendid edition of the Chronicle. It sparkles with ideas and revelations and that special Hookland sense of recognition and the half-remembered.
The Far Ends is so evocative of a time and a place. It takes me back to my childhood and the demolition site we were forbidden to play in, but did anyway. After half an hour of poking about in the empty, rubble strewn rooms, we were unaccountably filled with panic and a sense that we should not be there. We ran and never went back. Never talked of it afterwards.
I am very moved by Notes from the Wyrd Lab. There really is a need for working class voices to be heard when it comes to the writing of place and you do this with grace and tenderness.
For me Hookland certainly is “a pathway to revelatory joy”.
Thank you again.
Really loved the Far Ends (and the rest, of course!)
A wonderful read. So much to ponder in a delightful way. Thank you as always for your words.
Hope you are feeling better and the despondency has alleviated.
Wait, DragonCon 2015? Damnit, I was at that one too. So irritating!
This was utterly brilliant, it would make a fantastic movie xx
Understood. Just checking if it referenced something I’m not familiar with.
Emily’s Wand vs. The Skull of Alice. What an unusual name. Is there info on how the band came up with it?
I bet there’s a better word for it, I always call what happened to the Nadspek over time plushifition. The tendency to turn the horrific into something more manageable and marketable.
The Far Ends story says so much. I can’t even begin to talk how much I like it.
