I had planned to write about how revisiting Lovecraft has been for me. I reread the Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft (Commemorative Edition). (Affiliate link and not the edition I read but whatever) BUT um.
Okay so how many times or ways can I say holy fuckballs this is way more racist than I remember?
I mean..y’all. No wonder I think I blocked out a lot of it after reading it all as a teen. Wow.
So the upshot is I still love the mythos but yeah. Not gonna do that shit again.
I’ve been sick since last week. I missed two days of work which if you know me is a big deal. I had no voice for two days, couldn’t even try to fix my Yeah, Write entry. You know what I did? Fuck. All.
I also had a lot of dreams involving stuff I’ve been writing lately. That is maybe because I had a fever or because I was obsessing about not being able to work on them because I could hardly sit up without coughing all over and/or swooning a bit. My fever got to the point I sweated out my onesie jammies and I found that deeply distressing.
My body was like, hey fuck your comfort.
Also my work schedule has changed so things feel weird and unsettled. I don’t like that.
Coming up I’ll do another Stuff/People I love post this time about Jerry Stahl. I also will probably talk about the whole Hugo Mess and why I do not fuck with the industry side of SF/F/H and how fucking difficult that is given that I write some of that sometimes and love it. But yeah.
OH can we talk about how many books I want to read right now? I’m currently reading four not counting my audiobook and it is just not enough. I want more. I want to boss writers I love into writing more things for me to read. Also FYI the chrome thingy to push articles to your kindle is fucking awesome.
I think that’s about all for right now.
Except to say I am SO excited I’ve already saved up 35$ in my wee laptop fund.
OH also I have new stuff coming out soon. Fiction and Non fiction so keep an eye out for those announcements.
