"ODYSSEUS'S SCAR": YOUR OWN PERSONAL JUDAS. (Someone to hear your prayers. Someone who cares.) ...Anyway, here's the final section of the last story I will post until the New Year!And it's totally lame. Lots of stuff happens, the plot gets slightly out of my hands, and our characters descend into soap opera. Um, right, the story is about spies. And stuff. I do think it can be made good--perhaps even very good--but right now... lame. For one thing, it's too short, hence the soapy quality as all … [Read more...]

Oh well I feel so loose tonight I might fall to pieces, So be prepared to sweep me out the door, And I might be horizontal by the time the blogwatch ceases, So I think I'll get acquainted with the floor...Otto-da-Fe goes underground--and finds a hidden movie theater! Too cool."The Myth of the Catholic Voter"--and the revenge of the '70s.

"The inventors of the documentary hypothesis believed that by trying to distinguish the various strands they were getting closer to the truth, which, in good nineteenth-century fashion, they assumed to be connected with origins. But in practice the contrary seems to have taken place. For their methodology was necessarily self-fulfilling: deciding in advance what the Jahwist or the Deuteronomist should have written, they then called whatever did not fit this view an interpolation. But this leads, … [Read more...]

"ODYSSEUS'S SCAR": WHO'S ZOOMIN' WHO? Next section of the science-fiction-twin spy story. In which David Malone gets a very unwelcome head check. Plotness ensues.Sorry for the delay. Should finish story... well... either tomorrow or Thursday. Here for story so far, here for most recent section.Strong language, weak wills, ressentiment, and many other things that would, in a more confident age, have landed this story on the Index. Enter at own risk. If this were on TV, it would have to be on … [Read more...]

"ODYSSEUS'S SCAR": IF I HAD A ROCKET LAUNCHER. Next section of the current short story. Home is anywhere you hang your head, a.k.a. Justin reverts to melodramatic adolescence. The plot moves not at all. (Sorry.)There are two more sections of this, both plottier than your average cemetery. I hope to have it finished by Monday.Danger, Will Robinson!: I am becoming bored with trying to write clever disclaimers about the sketchy content of this story. So all I will say is, Enter at own risk. … [Read more...]

SPENT MY LAST TEN DOLLARS...: So I have a long, rambling, only slightly polemical thing up at MarriageDebate about bisexuality, emotional stress, and... stuff. Readers interested in gender, sexuality, marriage, and related whatnot might visit and let me know what you all think.And I'm almost done with the next scene of "Odysseus's Scar," I promise. Just stalling on some awkward transitions. It's a disappointing scene, I think, because we're in the middle where nothing plotty is happening, but … [Read more...]
