Reading: Kraken – China Miéville

Posted on | January 7, 2015 | Comments Off on Reading: Kraken – China Miéville

So, I’m reading, I’m reading. Some peculiar bits and pieces but nothing too weird. Nice little story progressing. Get to around page sixty and

WHAM! What the crap? Clive Barker bursts out of the cupboard (watch it) carrying a tin washtub filled with the entrails of grotesque and alien monsters who have no right to exist in the universe of someone sane. He flings it everywhere. Argh, Jesus, it’s in my eyes. What’s wrong with the world? A phone rings. I answer and Neil Gaiman starts rabbiting on about theologies and theophanies and other theostuffies but I can’t concentrate on what he’s saying because Barker’s throwing giblets at me. What’s happening? What’s happening? Nothing is right anymore. Why is these brain broken? Why?

So, erm, yeah. Kraken. It’s good. I think.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
