“Anyway, a bunch of penguins were living in a ceramic bowl of cold spaghetti noodles. There was no tomato sauce because it didn’t exist yet, but that was okay. As the spaghetti was cold, moisture condensed upon it. This kept the spaghetti from sticking, or from sticking to the penguins, or the bowl. It also kept the penguins from sticking to the bowl, and from sticking to each other.
As I mentioned, tomato sauce did not exist yet. You should realize since this was a beginning, the moisture didn’t either. Neither did the bowl. I think you can guess about the penguins. How could there be penguins if nothing existed yet?”
David S. Atkinson, Apocalypse All the Time

“I don’t even like fishing,” I remarked, “with or without scrotums, particularly snagged ones.”

“It was a bowl cut, the hairstyle for someone who doesn’t grasp respectable haircuts but suddenly has to have one.”

“If someone asked me to pick out my own vagina’s mug shot out of a lineup of vaginas, I’d be helpless. And probably concerned about what exactly my vagina had been doing that constituted a need for its own mug shot.”

Joseph Michael Owens Well that too! He wrote his non-sci-fi stuff as ["just"] Iain Banks and his sci-fi stuff as Iain M. Banks, which never made much sense to me as far as real name/pseudonym relationships usually go, but hey, whatevz!!
