When you revise "The Man Who Rowed Christopher Columbus Asho

Name: Hathor Source: unca20030523.htm Don't forget how the Anachronist left that bag of money on the piano bench so Jay Leno wouldn't get arrested. Along with Brian's question, I wondered if looking back on your body of work (Here comes that schoolgirl syntax)you had a "favorite" period, or if you ...

King Errors

Name: Hathor Source: unca20030523.htm They are interesting to find just for the simple reason that it is NOT in the short-story format, so errors are easier to miss. This is the text equivalent of watching a prop disappear and reappear in a big-budget movie. It just means someone not doing their jo...

Stephen King

Name: Hathor Source: unca20030523.htm Uh-Oh! You said "the secret word" :) (I was about THISCLOSE to saying i was from the "way" station, or Perpignan, but i digress) As fun as it is to watch him evolve, there are also sites out there that find the editing mistakes.

I must also apologize for mentioning Eminem

Name: Hathor Source: unca20030523.htm Just on general principle. It IS a holiday weekend... Poppy Z Brite comes to mind for someone with a more contemporary style as far as short stories go, not so much in the action unfolding, but for the characters involved. I don't recall being that bombastic an...

Name: Hathor
Source: unca20030523.htm
Good Point. I always wondered about the wearing of the Crucifix with Christ ON it. I thought the whole idea was he got AWAY. And the idea of "What Would Jesus Drive?" Well, I believe he walked...

Short Stories

Name: Hathor Source: unca20030523.htm I almost missed the speculative caveat, also. In that case, I'd suggest either Clive Barker's Books of Blood, or the "Alternative Generals" series. Historical speculative fiction to get the toe wet before jumping right into something completely abstract and dis...
