“Eliza and Ezra rolled together into the one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of sexually violent rotation with Eliza’s breasts barrel-rolled across Ezra’s howling mouth and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza’s body except for the otherwise central zone.”

 

Excerpt from Morrissey's debut novel ^

Almost done with Radio Free Albemuth

 

more coherant than Valis which I need to reread since I only made it half way through last time round. PKD pumping on all the good pistons for sure. Will be watching the film afterward.

What's the general consensus on Edgar Allan Poe? Just finished the first volume of a complete short stories compendium and don't feel like reading the second one tbh, feel like I've already read all the good ones

 

really? i read the penguin popular classics compilation and i really loved it. some of the tales were a bit odd, such as the duc de l'omelette or monos and una, but the rest was classic.

 

which ones have you read?

I think I posted a number of weeks ago, I'm reading Cortazar's translation/edition. He arranged the tales thematically so all the horror/paranormal ones are at the beginning, a whole lot of them, which I really enjoyed, highlights being the Eleonora/Morella/Berenice trilogy, the Usher house one, Metzengerstein... All of them were pretty good really

 

But then came the metaphysical tales/dialogues, which read like a load of crap imo, not really interested in pseudo-philosophy (talking about Monos and Una, Eiros and Charmion, etc). Now I'm making my way through the "analytical" ones: the golden bug & the morgue house ones, which are pretty formulaic and kind of... I dunno, it's like reading a puzzle from a math games magazine instead of an actual piece of literature, so I'm struggling to continue. I guess it's understandable considering the period this was written in, it's like proto-Dan Brown or something

 

Then volume 2's themes are 'explorations about the past and the future', 'contemplative tales', 'grotesque' and finally his attempts at satire, none of which I'm really interested in tbh

Finished a book by Thomas Ligotti, it was awesome but fucking hell it was nihilistic, on to The Book of English Magic next, might become a druid and move to the woods.

Teatro Grottesco, I'd recommend it if you haven't read it already, his Songs of a Dead Dreamer has just been released in the Penguin Classics range which is quite an honour.

Finished The Pale King, pretty good for a book that is basically a 500 page introduction to a novel that will never be written. Shame.

 

Onto the Corrections, which had me laughing within five pages. I have high hopes.

I'm re-reading the Fellowship of the Ring and enjoying it thoroughly. That's the advantages of having an absolutely awful memory, I can re-read a book and still be surprised by the contents.

I've been reading A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce, and this is completely different from that I was expecting. Of all of the things I was prepared for, this just came out of nowhere, and it's incredible. So far, I'm enjoying this vastly more than Dubliners. For something that started out so innocent, it's getting dark as hell (literally).

 

Also I got a big stack of really nice philosophical books at a book sale for dirt cheap, so I've been reading a bit of The Critique of Pure Reason, which is also getting very interesting in a different way.

Yeah, that's something I've wanted to do for a while, since it's been a long time and I wasn't aware of all the theological themes the book had the first time I read it. Joyce is keeping me really interested at the moment, though.

Going through the Council of Elrond again keeps me from ever re-reading that one.
