Welcome to Marwencol by Mark E. Hogancamp

Clear rating
A fascinating window into a fascinating, unsettling world. Hogencamp's art is both meticulously prepared and intensely, disquietingly personal, and I was glad to experience at least some of it.

I wish the book had more detail about the Marwencol stori

I appreciated the introduction, which explained the genesis of Huang's unique visual style -- a unique mixture of Blade Runner-esque, rain-slicked noir, Anime grit, and hip-hop videos. One can like Huang's style or not, but he's definitely got a visi ...more

All the way through A Rambler Steals Home, I found myself asking questions that probably weren't entirely relevant to the story, but that nonetheless kept me from fully engaging with the plot and characters.

Dream Girls by Tim Ewbank

To be perfectly clear, I don't have any problem with erotic photography, or indeed, erotica in general. But the text of this book, a combination of lad-mag misogyny and unpleasant exoticism, made me feel like I needed a chemical shower.

Stuffy the Hedgehog by Calvin Seymour

Clear rating
This was a hard one for me to evaluate. On the one hand, it's basically the plot of Watership Down, but with less detail, less world-building, thinner characters, and strange lacunae. (The fact that there's no scene detailing the end of the hedgehogs ...more

Philip Larkin
“The first day after a death, the new absence
Is always the same; we should be careful

Of each other, we should be kind
While there is still time.

From The Mower”
Philip Larkin

T.S. Eliot
“The essential advantage for a poet is not to have a beautiful world with which to deal; it is to be able to see beneath both beauty and ugliness; to see the boredom, and the horror, and the glory.”
T.S. Eliot

Italo Calvino
“A conversation with Miss Zwida would lead me inevitably to talk about seashells, and I cannot decide what attitude to take, whether to pretend absolute ignorance or to call on a remote experience now vague; it is my relationship with my life, consisting of things never concluded and half erased, that the subject of seashells forces me to contemplate; hence the uneasiness that finally puts me to flight.”
Italo Calvino, If on a Winter's Night a Traveler

Franz Kafka
“Everything you say is boring and incomprehensible, but that alone doesn't make it true.”
Franz Kafka

Italo Calvino
“This is what I mean when I say I would like to swim against the stream of time: I would like to erase the consequences of certain events and restore an initial condition. But every moment of my life brings with it an accumulation of new facts, and each of these new facts bring with it consequences; so the more I seek to return to the zero moment from which I set out, the further I move away from it. . . .”
Italo Calvino, If on a Winter's Night a Traveler
