One thing I did this year

that I hadn't done for a long time (in fact possibly not since 1990 or so, is that even minimally credible?) is write a short story, and here it is. Fun!


  1. Yes to that ending! (And BTW - sorry, too lazy to scroll back to the last poetry post - I read prose the same way as you do poetry - rolling it round my mouth like a full-bodied Sauvignon Cabernet.)

  2. Whoops, Cabernet Sauvignon - one glass too many tonight, I see.

  3. you fiend! marvellous!
    the first book you mentioned had me go 'hey waittaminit!', because i've been waiting and waiting for it, too. got to tell neil g. about this, heh.

  4. So... don't take this the wrong way, but I think the only writer I can I know of that writes better blogs, posts, unedited quickly dasted off comments on here, better than you actually write "prose" for your short stories, articles, and books.

    I often feel this is the same way for myself. The thing you produce is somehow less alive when overworked.
