    Oooh! Need any freelance work done?

    May 21, 2006
  • Thanks for the update! I’ve been wondering where you were.

  • Is that a Schwarzenegger model on that cover there? I clicked on the site, but my old eyes can’t tell.

    Normally I would not speak for anyone but me, but this time I can say with certainty that you were missed times a thousand. Exciting news for you, but I wish we could have it both ways. Work 22 hours of the day and blog for two! Sleep is overrated!

  • Congratulations, and good to see you again.

    May 22, 2006
  • Glad you’re back. I figured it was something like that.

    And congrats on the reprint!

    And did you do anything with that story you sent me a little back?

  • What I need is about 36 hours of uninterrupted sleep. And a pony—I need a pony.

  • Hey Luke, sorry I’ve been the Claude Raines of LJ. I’ll check in soon. How’s married life?

  • Thank you dear. The cover image looks more like the love child of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dolph Lundgren, if you ask me (imagine those two making the beast with two…uh, fronts—talk about the thunder of the gods).

    But I don’t read Russian, and I only speak two works: Spasibo (thank you) and Nekulturny (uncultured). I’m only mildly amazed that I know no profanities in Russian.

  • Hi! Thank you. It’s good to be back, if only fleetingly. I promise I’ll make a more substantial appearance soon.

    May 23, 2006
  • Thank you—I know I’ve been observing radio silence too long. Anything happen while I was gone? Coups in the Russian Federation, perhaps? Gordon is using the story to kill rats. That’s why I make all my manuscripts disposable. Cute Vespa—yours?

  • Hey, fuckin’ A! That’s so horrorshow!

    I feel very out of touch. Gotta catch up!

    May 24, 2006
  • That’s so horrorshow!

    Which, the reprint or the all-consuming job? Is that a good thing or bad?

    May 25, 2006
  • The reprint is horrorshow — what they said in A Clockwork Orange to mean “good.” From “horosho” in Russian.

    May 25, 2006
  • Ha! That’s a great joke—too bad I ruined it by forcing you to explain it. Без перевода.

    May 25, 2006
  • Это не проблема. Все ваши основания принадлежат нам!

  • “My goat is a ruddy scupper?” Boy, talk about supple idioms.

    Сопротивление бесполезно.

  • Indeed, Bobya, and I have always feared such is the case. By way of corollary: Вы будете ассимилироваться.

    May 25, 2006
  • Bobya

    Okay, I find that highly amusing. I guess it would be Bobya Williamovich.

    Я не боюсь Вас, Четыре из Шесть!

  • Can you tell I’ve already started browsing Dostoevsky on bookstore shelves?

    Я не боюсь Вас, Четыре из Шесть!

    Разве Вы не знаете мое истинное название? Я – Один из Восемь! Дрожите, мальчик обезьяны!

    It’s amazing who you find on here when you’re other friends post things about their friends. I didn’t know you were still writing. Yay and congrats. Me, I’m now trying to pick myself up out of a two year hiatus, partly cuz I’m unemployed and have time and figuring out how to send out all those things that haven’t ever seen the light of day. Hope all is well with you.

    Hey! I wasn’t hiding—I’ve been right here. Good to “see” you. Send me your current e-mail address.

  • Re: Hide n seek

    Errrr, I’ve lost my address book. I upgraded, which meant my modem (that I bought when the internet was DOS) no longer worked. And other glitches.

    If you have any old email from me the address is sorta still the same. First part hasn’t changed in ten years and the last is now @telus.net

    Kij should have it as I don’t really want to post the whole thing in LJ. : )
