Case in point: publishing your blog entries, especially those where you lose it with colleague, is a thing.

Re: Mark Samuels closes blog

I agree with Joshi about Hill, and the dearth of sound weird fiction critics.

Re: Mark Samuels closes blog

It's a shame, I liked checking out his blog every now and then.
Also I wish he came back to TLO

Yeah, his presence is certainly missed here by quite a few people, I would think.

Re: Mark Samuels closes blog

If I remember correctly, he was going to come back then had a login error.
I get this error too but if you just go to any TLO page, you'll see you have actually logged in successfully. Login error is usually a false alarm here.

Any Admin or MOD would help him resolve that.

Re: Mark Samuels closes blog

It is also worth noting that the person in question has an established history, both on this site and at his various blogs, of repeatedly taking his metaphorical ball and going home; if and when he wants to, he will return once more.

Re: Mark Samuels closes blog

I think it's best if he focuses on Patreon. The site allows monthly donation and once he accumulates a large following it will be a good source of income.

"Tell me how you want to die, and I'll tell you who you are. In other words, how do you fill out an empty life? With women, books, or worldly ambitions? No matter what you do, the starting point is boredom, and the end self-destruction. The emblem of our fate: the sky teeming with worms. Baudelaire taught me that life is the ecstasy of worms in the sun, and happiness the dance of worms."
---Tears and Saints, E. M. Cioran

Poor Leon Bloy; he died a century too soon.
