JULIO ALEXI GENAO writes for money and reviews for pleasure.

he freelances as an editor of fiction and corporate communications when he has opportune breaks in his hectic twitter schedule.

he eschews capital letters unless someone is paying him, because he is lazy and belligerent, and not because he is an artiste.

he is not defensive about that at all.

or about his choice to write this bio in the third person.

he believes in recreational drugs, professional discourtesy, and the right to review books honestly—even if the author is a friend.

he lives in new york city with three cats, barbaric neighbors, and mental illness.

hi. it's been a while.

description
this is julio failing to appear penitent for not blogging for millennia.

so: i'm sick unto death of my own manuscript. i'm taking a mental health day and telling little stories all around the web bcuz sometimes it's fun to be a hipster douchebag.

if you know me already, you know the following piece, the last one of the day, is likely to be a little sad, a little fucked-up... Read more of this blog post »

“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

“I have written it before and am not ashamed to write it again. Without Wodehouse I am not sure that I would be a tenth of what I am today -- whatever that may be. In my teenage years, his writings awoke me to the possibilities of language. His rhythms, tropes, tricks and mannerisms are deep within me.
But more than that, he taught me something about good nature. It is enough to be benign, to be gentle, to be funny, to be kind.”
Stephen Fry

message 1119: by Kalamah

Kalamah So, fun story. One of the authors who recently showed her ass in the past few days is one I had found all on my own, rather than hearing about through your wonderfully informative rants, and I'd decided that her prose was not up to my standards. I can't say I'm surprised to learn she's not just a bad writer, but also a bigot. Had the book I sampled been a physical copy, it might have gotten a flung-at-the-wall treatment for being pretentious infodumpy drivel, all the more disappointing because the premise sounded so promising.

In any case, I am as always very appreciative of your reviews and rants, as they've saved me money and time, and also brightened my days at times with your sense of humor.
