But tonite was especially notable because Martin Roberts read a story which I thought was truly outstanding. It was untitled and I'm still not sure what it was about but some of the ideas and imagery was terrific. Dig this:
- 'He liked standing barefoot in his fishtank getting a blow-job': as fine a piece of of neo-Vonnogutian whimsy as I've ever heard.
- When one of the protagonists charges a door to take out a bad guy (don't ask) the scene is described as being a mix of 'door and gore'. Wonderful.
- And the piece-de-resistance? Having one of his characters talk in...well I won't say in what because it's so good some bastard would nick it.
A good evening!
