Re: Recent Reading

Why all this concern for Pan Nazism?

Re: Recent Reading

Just curiosity about the man himself, not Pan Nazism.

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Also, I read The Last Deadloss Visions by Christopher Priest, an essay about the unpublished The Last Dangerous Visions anthology, edited by Harlan Ellison: http://web.archive.org/web/200009022...s,Chris_Priest.

The guy is a total nut and I do not agree with him at all, but I consider his imprisonment as an attack on the right of freedom of speech and, worst of all, it gave him the chance to set himself up as a martyr. If they hadn't arrested him, the guy would be on his way to oblivion as we speak.
His little poem did him in in his libel action against Penguin. I've never read any of his books, but I've read about him.

Re: Recent Reading

Christopher Hitchens panned him so I'll assume that should suffice

Well, if I had to choose between Hitchens and Irving I would probably just shoot myself.
