Re: Eibonvale Press

Loved your Talkative Star stories in Swimmer, Rhys. But I want my money back: I was in an aeroplane when that shadow was supposed to fly out of your story onto the walls, but the architecture around me permitted no such effect! Any favourite moments from the other stories?;)

Re: Eibonvale Press

Whoops! I didn't forsee the aeroplane scenario!

That's the problem with trying to pre-empt situations. If I was really good at pre-empting them I'd have worked out long ago that pre-empting situations doesn't work... but if I was good enough to pre-empt that fact, then pre-empting would work, for me at least... There's some sort of loop here and I don't want to get stuck in it!

Favourite moments from Blind Swimmer, you ask? Many. All of them, in fact. Right now I'm thoroughly enjoying Alexander Zelenyj's eccentric novelette, which is bonkers, in a good way...

Re: Eibonvale Press

Would that be a recursive loop by any chance, starting to shrink are we? Want me to call out Rediffusion? So... this is the best anthology of the year and you've not even finished it yet, let alone finished the year? How good can one anthology be!!!? Or has Herr Weirdmonger loaned you his retrocausal equipment....?

Re: Eibonvale Press

Well, I'm quite rash and hasty in my judgments -- at least that's my own judgment of myself. (But if that is a rash and hasty judgment too, then it means I'm not rash and hasty in my judgments, which means...)
Etc.

To be fair to myself, I rarely read anthologies in order, and I'm 98% of my way through this one. Certainly it's possible that the final 2% will cause me to reevaluate my judgment. I hope it doesn't!

Re: Eibonvale Press

Yesterday 3 Eibonvale books arrived at my doorstep. A large white bird was flying away in the distance. The books (Blind Swimmer, What the Giants Were Saying by David Rix, and Sylvow by Douglas Thompson). I delved into the Rix and Thompson and both are very good. I'll start sampling Blind Swimmer tonight.

By this logic, your judgement of yourself can only be rash and hasty if you have years and years left to live.... If we pronounce you wise we therefore doom you to a remaining 2% of your life, a few hours at best. By calling you a fool on the other hand, we therefore save your life and gurantee you a long remaining one. Insults have rarely been so life-giving until now. Thankyou for letting me see folly in a whole new light.

Meanwhile, as Brendan reads he will race towards the discovery on p.187 that I am a fictional character and I will cease to exist... Better pray he's a slow reader.

Re: Eibonvale Press

An update on the "Where Are We Going?" anthology: Allen Ashley informs me that the the deadline for submissions has now been extended to "10pm British Summer Time on Tuesday 31st May 2011...." Come on, big bad world out there, inundate Allen's head with your brilliance until steam comes out his ears! Grab yourself a juicy slice of the Eibonvale apple pie, and astound your peers! Win friends and influence people, two for the price of three, ten out of nine cat owners prefer Where Are We Going Anthology over any other toothpaste!

Email submissions in rtf or doc format will be acceptable, as well as by post.
