Light Reading (Not!)

I know it looks like I read a fair amount this week. I really didn't, seeing as the last bunch of stories were flash. So, here's the roundup.

The first two are from the collection Report to the Men's Club (from the local library, but I just ordered my own copy).

"Grandma" by Carol Emshwiller. A nice tale that took its time getting to the SF/F element, but was well worth the wait. Not your standard plotted story; it seemed more like a series of vignettes and flashbacks skillfully arranged into a narrative. 5 out of 5.

"The Paganini of Jacob's Gully" by Carol Emshwiller. You just need to read this! Just do it! It is without a doubt the absolute fucking best lit/genre-blended love story I have ever read! 5 out of 5!

"The Rookers" by Bobbie Ann Mason. Another piece from Shiloh and Other Stories. I've took my time reading this one, remembering how well-crafted I remembered the story "Shiloh" was. "The Rookers" didn't disappoint. Her character and setting descriptions are proof positive that "minimalism" doesn't mean "2,000 words or less." While the ending wasn't as shocking as the one in "Shiloh," it made me think just as hard. 5 out of 5!

I don't know why I waited so long to get a copy of The Girl on the Fridge. That was just dumb. Before I knew it, I read these stories in one sitting during my lunch break one day...

"Asthma Attack" by Etgar Keret. Not a story, but it's the piece that sets a metaphorical rationale for the economic for the economy of word use in rest of the book. Very, very nice. 5 out of 5.

"Crazy Glue" by Etgar Keret. Another valuable lesson for me that fantasy doesn't have to mean magic and such. 5 out of 5.

"Loquat" by Etgar Keret. Another story involving a grandmother, this is simultaneously a piece on the socio-political complexities of Israeli daily life and on the lengths anyone, anywhere might go to for family. 5 out of 5.

"Hat Trick" by Etgar Keret. Definitely loved the "gonzo magical realism" thing this story had going. Wasn't too big on the non-ending ending, well-written as it was. 4 out of 5.

Some Light Reading

Through the hustle and bustle of school, trying to fire off stories to markets, and eeking out some new stuff, I've been reading like I haven't been in awhile. I've actually read quite a bit since my last set of reviews, but I haven't had the brainspace to sit and give more than a passing thought to them before now. So, here's the latest batch.

This first four pieces are from the Trampoline anthology...

"The Force Acting on the Displaced Body" by Christopher Rowe. A journey always makes a great metaphor, especially when a piece is as well-written as this. It's a good example of something that skirts around the stricter genre definitions of fantasy. No magic as such--that is to say, no wizardry or the like. I guess it's more on the lines of myth-making. 5 out of 5.

"Well-Moistened with Cheap Wine, the Sailor and the Wayfarer Sing of Their Absent Sweethearts" by Ed Park. Slightly long and slightly too descriptive for this Carver-lover but that's my issue, not the story's. The premise of the story more than makes up for it. You could almost call this piece Soft-Science-Fiction. 5 out of 5!

"Angel" by Shelley Jackson. This is the second or third Jackson story I've attempted. I really can't put my finger on why I've been less than enthusiastic, thus far. Any idiot can see how good the writing is. I really don't know what I'm not getting. As far as this piece though, it read like something calculated to be a bizarro, if well-written, version of Raymond Carver's "So Much Water, So Close to Home." Still, the writing rules, so 4 out of 5!

"Impala" by John Gonzalez. Straight-up sci-fi joint--almost! Loved it! Gonzalez took a risk with the choice of POV character, but I still found it compelling. 5 out of 5.

"Shiloh" by Bobbie Ann Mason. I searched high and low for a copy of Mason's collection Shiloh and Other Stories, and finally found one (actually, three) in a second-hand bookstore around me that I didn't know about until about a month ago. I see why this story's a classic. Believable characters in a well-structured piece with the least amount of "writing" necessary. What more could a reader want? 5 out of 5.

"The Garden of Time" by J.G. Ballard. Another classic, this from his Best Short Stories. The line between sci-fi and fantasy blurs with this one because of Ballard's skillful writing. A little light on characterization for me, though. 4 out of 5.

"All afternoon, those birds twitter twit"

...except for yesterday, when LoudTwitter didn't ship my "Tweets for Today" here, probably because of Twitter's update. Here's the recap.
  • Firefox/Twitter login troubles fixed. It was a goshdern add-on that's updated its update. I can sleep the sleep of angels, now.
  • It's been two days--I miss writing.
  • Fell off the red-eye wagon! I couldn't help it!! :(
  • Sitting in a computer lab in front of a 19" monitor. I could get used to a 19" monitor.
  • Trying to force myself to take a BREAK during lunch, and not force any writing or schoolwork. But, I'm tempted...
  • Would really rather use a legit version of some stats software. But there are ways... >:)
  • Tonite's writing agenda: checking to see if my latest project really can go without 1,250 words, or if I need to leave it.
  • Feeling cranky after one red-eye. Well...one red-eye and two additional cups of coffee.
  • Attempt to get legit stats software: Denied. Fine. ;)

Couldn't Have Said It Better, Myself

The writer me is mono-syllabic, doesn’t care if his beard grows down to his ankles, scribbles notes on little bits of paper, takes long walks in the woods mumbling to himself, maps out character positions in rooms and notes where the light is coming from, doesn’t answer the phone, and isn’t fond of talking to people.
Comments off for this one, I think.

Don's Big Score

Got back from Ithacon, the local comic show. Once again, I failed to connect with local great Roger Stern because of my perpetual shyness, but I just had to go and shake the hand of guest Bob "The Answer Man" Rozakis! I used to live for his "Ask the Answer Man" columns in the back of DC's comics when I was a kid. Thanks to him, I learned the secret identities of most of the Legion of Super Heroes and in what issue the Batman of Earth-2 died.

I would've loved to have had an "Ask the Answer Man" column for him to sign, but I didn't. Felt bad. He was a swell guy, too. I bought a boatload of 2/$1 books from him and accidentally left one, which he walked over to me. I ran into him again at another dealer's table as I was flipping through old issues of Detective Comics. I pulled out one with an interesting cover (Issue 467, from Feb. 1977) when I heard someone next to me saying, "I wrote that." What happened next was a no-brainer...

Other things I picked up...
  • The six-issue run of DC: The New Frontier
  • Jonathan Lethem's Omega the Unknown, #1
  • Four issues of Steve Edmond's Emo Boy
  • The first 8 (of 9) issues of Captain Atom: Armageddon (a DC/Wildstorm crossover)
  • A metric crapload of Bendis' & Oeming's Powers from Image Comics
  • A discounted copy of Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics
Oddly enough, none of these items were on my list!

I should also mention a pleasant conversation I had with artist Jime Alena Grabowski! The Wife bought a print from her a couple of years ago of "a chick" as Grabowski put it. Her drawings nowadays are completely different. There's a print I'm interested in, so I gotta get to emailing if I want it.

Track This

I've taken one step backward from my trend toward low-tech/no-tech writing solutions. Although, I guess running portableapps off a USB stick, or storing stuff on Google Docs isn't exactly low-tech. But I've been trying to decrease my computer dependance as much as is feasible. Because I just can't carry around a laptop anymore, nor do I particularly have to.

I used to track my submissions in a small Moleskine cahir notebook. But, I've upgraded to Sonar now.

So far, so good!

This WILL Be Mine!

I so fucking want this...

Can you blame me...?
The TARDIS has two doors, which open inward as they do in the series. Inside, we see a printed backdrop to indicate the interior and the central control console. When it's opened, an interior light shines down on the floor.

The doors snap firmly into place when opened. To close them, you pull the left door closed first, then push a button inset into the floor (nicely disguised on the brick-tile floor), which snaps the other door shut. The phone panel on the left door snaps open to reveal the old-time telephone.

When you lift the TARDIS, a button on the bottom triggers the dematerialization/takeoff sound, which is accompanied by flashing police light. The interior lights remain on (and can be seen through the frosted windows and the police box panels at the top) during motion. There are three dematerialization sounds, slow, fast and emergency takeoff.

Two materialization sounds can play when the TARDIS lands, triggered by the same button being pressed.

Shaking the TARDIS side to side triggers two "turbulent flight" sounds.

An interesting feature caught my eye on the bottom of the TARDIS: a small, rotating plastic divot. I wondered what it could be for (before reading the instructions). It fits a finger, which allows you to support the TARDIS with one finger while spinning the TARDIS by its top-mounted police light. You can rotate this thing pretty fast, and while you do so, it plays the spinning vortex sound effect.

"Feels like the first time"

Despite the Tweet, I made the Sign of the Cross and sent out my first story in months. The summer was just so crazy, what with cramming for the GRE and having to quickly formulate and reformulate my grad school aspirations about twelve or so times. I had to cram in the editing time I could. I think I've lost count of just how many stories I have in the trunk to revise--three or four. Well, at least I got one down.

I seriously forgot how hard it is to just let a piece go. I had to make myself do it! Just like that first swim in the summertime when you're a kid, and you're dreading how cold that water is, no matter how many times you've already jumped into the damn pool. Finally, your only options are to walk away or just say "Fuck it..."

Unvarnished Reviews

I haven't done one of these in awhile even though I've been poring through short story collections, as any survey of my goodreads account will show. But I just had to say something about...

M. Rickert, "Evidence of Love in a Case of Abandonment: One Daughter's Personal Account" -- The Oct/Nov issue of F&SF couldn't come fast enough because I'll buy anything with M. Rickert's name on it. Such is my cultish devotion to her writing. This one didn't disappoint. I've enjoyed some of her other stories more, but this one has some jaw-dropping craftsmanship. I can't think, off the top of my head, of a story she's written that this blatantly political. It's got the tropes of the sort of story I usually can't stand--a near-future world where certain partisan values have run amok and the citizenry has become generally inured. Even the protagonist. But even though the protag doesn't rail against the system, she's not blind. She's fully aware of the effect the system is having on her and hers. Until she decides that she's finally going to cope with it all in a way--and this is the best part--that most of us would probably cope. 5 out of 5!
