Some more

Vandana Singh is a distinct voice in contemporary Speculative Fiction.

If she is good with Ursula K. LeGuin, she is good by my book.

The tome of choice.

The book that I carry with me everywhere these days is “Some of us did not die”- June Jordan. I bought it about 3 months ago and must’ve read it more than 15 times. Despite the cliches and the occasionally blurry perspective, there is something unrelenting and hopeful about the essays. Or maybe I am drunk on Earl Grey.

And now I shall repair to the morgue-esque environs of the most drab training room this world has ever seen and try act clownish,effortlessly so, for a dozen wobbly brained half asleep and completely clueless delegates. At 3:30 am.

Now do you comprehend why am I such misanthropic creature?

  2. i agree@misanthrope..i feel particularly “misanthopish” when i am at work.i am reading something by philip roth and i picked a book on francisco goya.i am a pretentious prick!

  3. Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? Is killing thousands of innocent civilians okay when you are doing a little government makeover?
    Are we safer today than we were before?
    We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
