Book of the Week: Neuromancer.

William Gibson’s first book, Neuromancer was one of those works that spawned an entire literary genre (including a certain video game coming out next year). But hey! No pressure, right?

Pretty much 77% done at this point. …Yeah, about that. I think that this book is going to end up being more than 60K words, although I will actually finish it and have the ending be a little rushed rather than do 60K and just stop. I think that doing it that way will actually make it easier to finish later. Snippet here.

We keep on keeping on. Almost 75% done! Although I may need more wordcount than 60K, at that. Snippet here.

No snippet tonight: I made the mistake of having a couple of ciders with dinner, and I’m suddenly very tired. A lot of those 1500 words may end up being crap, you see. We’ll figure it all out tomorrow.

PS: Nah, I’m just tired. I need to sleep more.

At this point I am 63% done, on target for numbers, and I’m starting to recognize that I need to go back and put more themes of smallness and restriction into the text*. It’s turning out to be important. Snippet here.

‘The Curious Sea Shanty Variants of Innsmouth, Mass.’

Huh. Thought that the image would come through. Anyway: if you haven’t picked this up, it really is one of the best things that the HPL Historical Society has ever done. It’s a monograph AND an album, and it’s really rather good. Check it out.

Turns out being sick as a dog isn’t necessarily bad for the old word-count. Go figure*! Snippet here.

*Regretfully, it wasn’t pneumonia, strep throat, or anything else that I could throw antibiotics at. Just Zantec-D and time.

Patreon Microfiction: “It Could Have Been You, Sure.”

Patreon!

I have long felt that the smart thing to do with a geas like the one in “It Could Have Been You, Sure” was to ignore the blessed thing entirely. The stories are clear: the harder you try to thwart a death-geas, the more bloody-minded the universe gets in warping reality. Just don’t sweat it, man. Everybody’s gotta die of something, and you want the other person to be the overconfident one in a duel.

I dunno whether my cold or whatever this is today helped or hurt that, honestly. I was kind of focused, but I don’t know how much of it is crap. But I’m back on track! 57% done!. Snippet here.
