Hi Rhys,


This shouldn't be too long a thread, I'm trying to get in touch with you and haven't got your email address.

Asked Keith Brooke and Paul Lewis and drew a blank but Keith said you had this board, so here I am.

Rather than disclose you email addy here, can you send it to Keith or Paul for forwarding? Or if you haven't got their addresses, can we establish a mutual contact who won't mind passing the details through?

Hope you're keeping well dear, it's been a long time and no hear!

Sandy

I've just been translated into Serbian! The first time I have ever been translated.

That was one of my many writing ambitions and thanks to the excellent Zoran Zivkovic it has come true!

The story in question is a novellete called 'The Old House Under the Snow Where Nobody Goes Except You and Me Tonight' and it hasn't been published in English yet, so its first appearance is in Serbian. Excellent!

It can be found in the latest edition of the literary journal POLARIS published by Zoran in Belgrade.

Rhys (or should I say Ris?): congratulations on everything, novel and story! I still haven't lost hope, given time and sufficient insanity, that your stories will one day be translated (that is, properly) into Portuguese.

Cheers,
Luís

Down with the French! Set Bush on 'em! They won't allow schoolgirls to show that delightful inch of tummy anymore. No more jeans that look as if they're just about to slip down.

¡Gracias a Dios I'm in Spain!!

What's this to do with writing? ask outsiders. Everything. Writers need inspiration, do they not?

Incidentally, has anyone else noticed that Agilulf (the non-existent knight himself) has a cameo role in Clark Ashton Smith's 'The Abominations of Yondo'?

Hi Rhys,

There's a new evolving novel thing being run by Pageplay/Flame books. Thought you might be interested in it:

http://www.pageplay.com/evolvingstory.pdf

PS

Fragment 2 (along with Cornerpolis) should be up within the week (I've said this before, but this time I've seen the pages)

Hey, Rhys! Been to Luís Rodrigues' blog lately? There's a raetorical question there for you, in a comment box. ;)

Posted on Thursday, January 15, 2004 - 04:41 am:   

Bom dia, Jorge!

I looked and looked for that 'raetorical' question, but I couldn't find it. I couldn't even find any rhetorical questions!

However if you are Jorge Candeias, then maybe the following passage will answer that hidden question (this is just a guess). The passage is taken from the 'Quest of the Mouther' thread elsewhere on this board:

****************************

I was so impressed with the Nemonymous story ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ (which I now know to have been written by Jorge Candeias) that I decided to make a fairly blatant reference to it in one of the sections of my forthcoming A NEW UNIVERSAL HISTORY OF INFAMY. Candeias’ story is absolutely my favourite piece in Nemo#3.

Yeah, I'm that guy allright. And I want a copy of that bok, you hear? Indeed that was the question in question. ;)

quoting: "(PS - Will Rhys send me a copy of his book now? I wander…) ;)"

;)

(PS: And thanks, Rhys. I'm flattered)

Now then Steve: aren't you the fellow with a Turkish ladyfriend who hoped that your (very fine) first novel would be present at last year's Munich Book Fire...? And was this not the same lady who recently went to a German weeding...

A couple of weeks ago I was soberly informed by a (very pretty) work colleague that I should stop putting her on a pedal stool.

Posted on Friday, January 16, 2004 - 02:26 pm:   

Hannes Bok? Rings a bell. Tell me.

Yes, she hoped to see my wotsit at the Munich Bookfire!! (Actually, that might have saved me a lot of embarrassment.)

One has to wonder: is the lady rather short? And if so, and you were pedalling her stool, where would you take her?

and here's the thing - you brilliantly deduced (correctly) that 'bok' does in fact mean 'stool' of that variety that you sit for, but not on...

Jorge, only joking. Though in fact there's a word in English for 'typoing', but I can't remember it. A word that means the word itself contains and illustrates its own meaning. Please help out, someone.

Posted on Friday, January 16, 2004 - 05:11 pm:   

I know you're joking, Steve, no worries. It's just that I don't like my own typos and since I make them often, they end up pissing me seriously off.

Let's face it: I'm in disadvantage around here for not having english as first language. My english may not be bad, but it's far inferior to that of practically everybody on these boards. And I most definitely do not need my dyslexic fingers worsening it even further by putting errors in sentences and words I am totally familiar with.

I could go along with the phlegmatic phylosophy that stems from the motto "In typo veritas", but phlegm, helas, is not one of my qualities...

Thackery Lambshead has been directly responsible for introducing me (last night) to one of the most interesting and erudite people I have ever met -- Sara Gwenllian Jones -- a fellow contributor to the Disease Guide.

Imagine a female version of Gabriel Mesa. No praise can be higher...

Sorry, old chap , but compared to us Spaniards you Welsh are a cold-blooded lot. Today, an 85-year-old man (ex-butcher) hacked to death (with old butcher's knife), in an old folks home, the 81-year-old woman he married FIVE DAYS AGO - through jealousy! He figured, it seems, someone was getting at night into the room he shared in the Residencia with the woman...
Can we have a photo of Gabriel Mesa, please?

A photo of Gabe Mesa...? Not necessarily one of your better ideas that, Steve! I meant the comparison purely in terms of erudition...

I am currently working with a Madrilena(?) so I understand what high temperature blood means...

I'm enjoying the manuscript of your new novel, Steve. I've become a slow reader, unfortunately, so it may take me another couple of weeks to read all of it.

Rhys, take a couple of months! No urgency, the publishers aren't exactly tripping over each other in their eagerness to get hold of it!

Now, did you get round to sending those Stars or not? If you didn't, no prob, I'm going to order a pile of books from England anyway (I promised Pete Tennant I'd read some (selected) horror, and Nightshade itself has got 4 books I want, among other things)so I'll be getting a friend to get quite a few books from Amazon or Smiths, depending. Why, now I know who's in it, I've even got to order Nemonymous 3! (Des, I know you're everywhere - how much for a copy to Spain? Btw, happy birthday, young feller!)And my copy of the original History of Infamy, left in UK.
Trouble is, if you read slowly, I read backwards.... I STILL haven't finished the wondrous third volume of Pullman.

Hi, Steve, sure signifies something that people won't order Nemo until they know who's in it! :-(

Anyway thanks for the query :-)

I need to get my act together -- I owe a lot of people e-mails, to say nothing of other things (such as books I've promised them)...

I will try to be more efficient. I've been a bit of a flake since I got back from Madrid...
