Inestimable Foot Eater
Well, I was going to muddle together a post of some sort today, but thought I’d catch up on my favourite blogs first and maybe sprinkle some comments around to get back into the posting way. Now, after reading the fabulous “The Fishwhacker Swindle?” I realised there is nothing better I can do than direct any passers-by to go right there post-haste.
Mr Foot Eater has written a brilliant short story in 3 parts (scroll down for part 1). The Best way I can describe it is John Le Carre meets Stephen King at a conference on European medieval fairy tales somewhere in the Czech Republic and they have a chat about The Green Knight , with Messrs. Dire Warning and Nabokov glowering in the corner. It is illuminating and sinister but care must be taken: it should be read in a bright room with cheerful wallpaper and no gloomy corners or potted plants (see story) to prevent you from brooding too much on its darkness. Of the two mistics, I can’t decide whether the conclusion is opti or pessi. Anyway – it’s good.
Now, though, I have no time to think up a post of my own and I haven’t had a chance to check out my other favourite sites either. Damn you Foot Eater!
Shoosh! Wheecht! Away with you now to Footie’s. He’s some darn good readin’.
Later: Forgot to include a link to Mr. Eater’s. Here he is: http://fishwhackerswindle.blogspot.com/
