writing dust rengeek shakespeare

everyone's a liar baby and that's the truth

Gothic novels are fun.

Gothic novels where the crumbling old house is replaced by a derelict generation ship?

Yeah baby.

Also, this book allows me to write lines like: She looked around for an escape, or perhaps a pot of coffee.

On to the forced marriage, and the bitter bitter end! 

Also, Perceval is about to be sore tempted.

If all goes right, I might get out of this book by next weekend!



One, from his high bright window, looking down,
Peers like a dreamer over the rain-bright town,
And thinks its towers are like a dream.
The western windows flame in the sun's last flare,
Pale roofs begin to gleam.

--Conrad Aiken, The House of Dust



Fading, fading; strength beyond hope and despair
Climbing the third stair.

--T.S. Eliot, "Ash Wednesday."

Gothic space opera is where it's at...
So. True.

The bridge is draped in spider webs. *g*
Lovely. Like a wedding cake.
EXACTLY.

Now to set a bride on fire....
It's been so exciting watching this unfold :D
The whole trilogy is called Dust. The first novel is Pinion, which I am finishing now and should be out Spring 2008.
...do you know stillsostrange?

because for some reason, you remind me of her....
All the while I was reading the Gothics for my Victorian book I wondered why none of the Gothic authors ever wrote one set on an abandoned prison hulk.

But I like the idea of a Gothic generation ship *much* better.
