Kings of the EarthKings of the Earth by Jon Clinch

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In a book, playing with time is a kind of magic trick.

If it’s done poorly, we don’t believe. We see the dove that’s up the sleeve, the different sizes of playing cards in that deck, the fake feet on the woman who’s cut in half. And we don’t blink or wonder or feel amazed.

But if it’s done well – if it’s done in a way that doesn’t reveal the... Read more of this blog post »

“Our lives are businesses that are sometimes run by idiots.”
Patrick Reinken, Omicron

“My father was a Catholic, a coal miner in the Big Pit. My mother a Jew. A charwoman, when she could find the work. They didn’t fit in Wales. Nor in the U.K., either. They didn’t fit with each other all that well, for that matter. They fought every day for as long as I can remember and loved each other more than anyone I’ve ever known. At least they did right up till a night when he looked right and not left at a train crossing in Chepstow and ended up half a mile from where he’d started, dead as the Ghost. Looking for a job, he was. Turned out he didn’t need one.”
Patrick Reinken, Omicron

“The first draft of anything is shit.”
Ernest Hemingway

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
Stephen King

“Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.”
Margaret Mitchell

“The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.”
Willie Nelson

“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King
