Dear younger people.

ASAP get to Anchorage / St. Johns / Inverness / Trondheim / Archangelsk / Comodoro Rivadavia / Hobart / Christchurch.

Build a life. Embed in the community. Live 25m+ above sea level. Invest in pastures and flattish land if possible.

On behalf of Gen X & those before us: I am so, so, *SO* sorry.

Good luck.

Dear older people,

We're going to have a bumpy send-off. Then again, the planet was screwed on our watch.

I'll see you at the last gasp street-parties.

I know it's ridiculous, but the thing I find hardest to cope with on Mastodon is not being able to mark a column as read and empty it, apart from notifications.

I've found my way in to the Cult of Tsathoggua -- through Zardoz. Yay!

My publishing company is minuscule. As small as it gets. Agents of writers who want to work with us have caused me no end of problems. Nightmares, sometimes.

I would never, ever condone a ban on agented manuscripts.

It should be obvious, but RUN SCREAMING from any publishing company that only accepts unagented writers and says you have to drop your agent if you have one and they accept you.


Hell Frequency is consistently disturbing Lynchian horror in bite-size chunks. Ep 3 out now.

"For I am a time-traveller, like my father before him and his father after me."

Evil monster-god cult as peppy multi-level marketing operation.

"Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."

I do wish there was a way to clear the Home and Timeline tabs of everything I've read so far. It makes me twitchy!

Today's writing task is to detail the cult of Gla'aki (an evil deathless monster-god created by Ramsey Campbell). Yay for occasionally working for the RPG 'industry'!

For being a person who hates rain and snow with a passion, there's something really soothing about listening to rain. This reminds me of the last time I was camping, waking up to the sound of rain hitting the tarp.

Belated context: Gla'aki is a slug-like God-monster created by horror author Ramsey Campbell. His minions are basically zombies without the embarrassing fixation on fresh, juicy brains. It's all H. P. Lovecraft's fault in the end, though.
