The Haunted Vagina is a great example of what Carlton Mellick III does so well. Take an eerie adjective, combine it with an incongruous noun, which equals a funny, intriguing title. Then explore the idea in that title, give them some of what they cam ...more

A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin

Clear rating
As many good things as I've heard about Le Guin's writing, I was a bit disappointed that the first book I read by her would give me such a 'meh' feeling.

I think the scope of this story was too much for the way it was written. Many events happen so f

Thor by Jason Aaron

Great story that expertly weaves in and out of three different time settings. Also, it was refreshing to see Thor in "god" mode, dealing with a problem bigger than his brawn and hammer and outside the reaches of Earthlings and their mortality. Intere ...more

“I’ll keep this part short, because no one truly gives a shit about this kind of stuff, and I’m sure you don’t, either. They want to read about someone with more tragic failings than themselves surviving hell to get the girl in the very end. Anything to make their dull existences tolerable, their literary doses coming four minutes at a time on the crapper one-point-seven times per day. By my calculations, that puts you about one week into this story, far too removed emotionally to possibly understand my actions.”
Gordon Highland, Major Inversions

“You remind Cruise that I was the one who begged him to run screaming from that script,” Graham shouts into a speakerphone on his desk in an office just like every office in movies with studio executive scenes. Where a window fills the entire rear wall on a floor so high you could see your house from it if it weren’t obscured by its own weather system. The kind that silhouettes the man in power with a Christ-like halo of sunlight meant to intimidate guests into squinting in what could be mistaken for awe. He waves me inside to sit in a chair that’s at least one strategic foot lower than his own.”
Gordon Highland, Major Inversions

Gordon Highland
“These things matter. It’s tedious, I know. Any writer worth his weight in pulp would by now have set the hero along a definable journey, or at least created some kind of goal against which to measure his progress as we move forward. I assure you, the foundation has been laid. Characters have been established and the scene is set. Dim the lights and let’s dance. Who says I’m even the hero? Get off my fucking back. I’m no journalist, I’m a musician, for Christ’s sake! Still, the ultimate truth, for our purposes anyway, whether these events are factual or not, is better revealed through the words I choose to describe them. I’d never cheat you of that. I only wish I could see through the back of the page as you make the connections.”
Gordon Highland, Major Inversions

Gordon Highland
“Strapped in, this chair conjures sympathetic imagery the eyes could never record. Theater of the mind etched on the skull wall. The collective depression of the universe weighting our thoughts, the search for truths, the need to feel connections with others. Bliss balancing confusion, fear tempered by hope.”

“Hold the mail, I could swear that was funny. He must draw his powers from the others. A malevolent synergy, like when you multiply negative numbers.”
