About me

“bibliobibuli” – There are people who read too much, bibliobibuli. I know some who are constantly drunk on books, as other men are drunk on whiskey or religion. They wander through this most diverting and stimulating of worlds in a haze, seeing nothing and hearing nothing. (H.L. Mencken’s “Notebook 71,” 1956) A word after a word after a word is power. (Margaret Atwood) Book lovers are engaged with writers in a private communion that occurs in some vaporous cenacle of the mind. (Joe Queenan) Who what am I? My answer: I am the sum total of everything that went before me, of all I have been seen done, of everything done-to-me. I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I’ve gone which would not have happened if I had not come. Nor am I particularly exceptional in this matter; each ‘I’, every one of the now-six-hundred-million-plus of us, contains a similar multitude. I repeat for the last time: to understand me, you’ll have to swallow a world. (Midnight’s Children, Salman Rushdie)

Yeah, the Ambassador cover is pretty sweet - especially the paperback, which is embossed and has gold lettering! I've just received the Feaster cover from Snowbooks, and it's also totally gorgeous. I'm about halfway through the third novel in the series (entitled "Gods of Atlantis"), which hopefully will be out next year. Take care. Alan (more) and bagged+3
