My old one was from a library critic, who wrote that my books "read like Gene Wolfe that makes sense." Head sweller, that one.

But my new favourite is from Jon Courtenay's Guardian review of TWP. You might have to read it closely, but I think you'll quickly see why...

"The Warrior-Prophet is a good book; with more stringent editing it could have brilliant."

I'm going to be chuckling until Christmas about this one. view post

ROFL! I love that! Always great one someone picks on editing and in turn an editor lets something slip and drops the ball. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

In the philosophy biz, we call them 'performative contradictions.' The nontechnical term is 'Bush administration.' view post

Trust me, as soon as I can, I will. Lived near Miami for two years before being forced by money/job issues to move back to my native Middle Tennessee. Once I finish this coursework on social work and complete (hopefully, if I get accepted into the program) a two-year work-study agreement, plans are for me to either move back to South Florida or (preferably) to Latin America to do a combination of international child welfare and teach English.

Which of course might make it more difficult for Scott to send me ARCs <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post

I have a great Bush joke:

Rumsfeld and the other staffers are giving Bush his morning briefing.

Rumsfeld concludes his brief with "...and, oh yeah, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed in a skirmish last night..."

Bush becomes really distressed at this news and begins crying and wailing.

"Oh ma god! That's horrible news. The humaninity"...

Rumsfeld and the other staffers are shocked at Bush's outcry and distress.

Bush puts his head on his desk for a moment. Finally, he lifts it and looks at Rumsfeld.

"Remind me again, Don. How many is a Brazilian?"
