Simon’s Recent Updates

“We wouldn’t let our dogs and cats suffer like this but we’ll happily put our own parents away to wither and waste into ignominy and despair. They deteriorate to frightened babes again as everything they’ve ever been deserts them, and we think it’s the humane, moral thing to do, to let that happen.”
Simon Dewar, Suspended In Dusk

“They’d tried automatically generating the stories in response to the figures but had ended up with nonsense—one scenario suggested by the computer was that a gang of toddlers had terrorised a war veteran with a syringe full of HIV positive blood.”
Simon Dewar, Suspended In Dusk

“I lived hand to mouth then—tirer le diable par la queue, as my grandmother used to say. Pulling the devil by the tail.”
Simon Dewar, Suspended In Dusk
