Fuck, are you mooks pulling my chain? I confess to writing that poem in about five seconds, no joke. Sometimes the muse does a hit and run. With me that is saying something. Thanks, anyways. Frank, no chain pulling here, that was an amazing 5 seconds worth of work! You are righteous with your words...

I once saw Sam running down a railroad track ahead of an oncoming freight train, barking his ass off. Just as he was about to get creamed, he lept aside and strutted off without a backwards look as if to say, Don't worry I chased off that big fucker for you! Go SAM!!!! LOL THAT's some kinda dog for...

The Jake has dutifully slain every ladder, lawn mower, pogo stick, vacuum cleaner, shovel and dining room chair that dared invade our homes. We got him a muzzle the other day. He thinks it's a chew toy. WOW! Your Jack Russell is one righteous little attack-mack-daddy-dog. I say HOT DOGS! Get a clic...

Yeah, I *heard* that! My dog trainer (in CGC class) says that the hardest part is training the *owners*, not the dogs. (Course, as a bitch, I'm hard to train anyway LOL! :) (Please refer to avatar)) My dog is amazing. He spontaneously offered the behaviour for "shake". All I had to do was ...

Re: #30 - You Don't Know Me, I Don't Know You

As an example, Harlan notes that Fritz Leiber's first novel in 8 years: "...isn't as worthy of attention as the first novel of an actor, no matter how well it's written. It isn't as important as Sybil Leek's astrological bullshit...it isn't as important as a pair of westerns...it isn't as impo...

I would argue that the only obligation a writer has is to his or her muse, as an artist; a genre writer or technical writer is obliged to write to deadlines and to fill a certain number of expectations. Jon's points about Shakespeare and Byron are well-put and well-taken: both are undeniably artists...

This is just a "me too" post about the poem, Frank. It is beautiful, moving: words better than I could ever write, and I second markabbadon's sentiments. I'm sure that Susan appreciated it.

Hi, Jan, As usual, you are right on the money:) In order to sell books and experience validation, he does have to prove his talent to those who have none, which he indicated is his struggle. There is no doubt, I think, especially not to us here at S.P.I.D.E.R, that he's basically correct in his assu...

Good points about the fannish types, and also about the need to keep fans to keep readership going. But what happens when the pressure from fans stops the work in its tracks? Don't we as fans, as mere consumers owe more to Harlan than to constantly nudge him? Another quote from Harlan, this time fro...

Anyway, what stuck in my mind about this essay was the fact he complained about the lack of respect and recognition Leiber was receiving, which was also really a result of people's stupidity and inability to appreciate what he considers good genre writing - to the detriment of those who spend their...
