Yay! Amanda finished her book! God, what a feeling, eh?
I know absolutely nothing about this author... Amanda...
Is it a Jodie Foster or Lindsey Lohan kinda Freaky Friday?

Hmmm... There wasn't much in the way of intense drug and alcohol abuse by a minor, so, NOT a Lindsey Lohan kind of Freaky. Ooooh, maybe it's more like a Kirk Cameron/Dudley Moore kind of Freaky (Like Father Like Son). Or maybe a Judge Reinhold/Fred Savage kind of Freaky--I dont remember the name of that movie.
I love this author. I think he can get a bit full of himself, but basically his stories are quite good. Urban Fantasy--you know, the weird and mysterious happening right under our noses. Anyway, he's no literary genius or anything, but his characters are almost always passionate artists and misfits. Gotta love that! :)
I'll stop now. I could go on for hours!

is Charles de Lint...

David, pretend you didn't see this. This is the kind of thing I suspect will cause you to friendship break up with me. I swear, Salinger is next on my to-read list, followed by Proust. ;)

Amanda, although the cover of this book, yes, disturbs me to some extent, you've already won me over with
Wet: More Aqua Erotica
. Now return to the teat of my friendship. No teeth please.

God, you're so easy. I didn't even have to show you that I added
Tickle His Pickle
in the spirit of all the textbook oral sex that was going around a couple weeks ago.
Back to Charles de Lint, my favorites are
The Onion Girl
Memory and Dream
but I have several as second-place favorites. I won't read his horror, though. Scary stuff's scary...
