The Big Idea: Arianne 'Tex' Thompson

When you introduce magic into a real-world setting, you don’t only have to deal with the problems that magic introduces — you have to deal with the problems that already existed in that real world setting. 855 more words

Big Idea

Michael Patrick Hicks reblogged this on Michael Patrick Hicks and commented:

I've been thinking a bit about the genre sometimes known as "weird western" of late. The concept is one that really strikes a chord with me and I love the idea of a low-tech frontier dealing with supernatural forces. I'd hope for more out of the movie Cowboys & Aliens; after all, six-shooters and horses vs. aliens and UFOs seemed ripe for a truly awesome story. Joe R. Lansdale's Deadman's Road is in my TBR pile, and Hunter Shea's Hell Hole has certainly caught my eye. Thanks to John Scalzi's blog, I can now add One Night in Sixes to my list. It sounds dynamite! Author Arianne 'Tex' Thompson writes, "But as nervous as I am about this Big Idea and how it will be received, the even-bigger one behind it – that is, the push for a more inclusive bookshelf, and the importance of being able to re-imagine our own history without sweeping the uncomfortable bits under the rug – is one that I am really excited about. I hope you will be too." I certainly am. And the quote drawing a quick comparison to Stephen King's The Dark Tower doesn't hurt any, either! Be sure to check out the original post at Whatever.

VVG Table: Very Very Good Table

Zhongxiao Dunhua is packed with all the fancy places young people in Taipei go to.

It’s not only about the shopping; it’s also heavily about the eating, the (serious) hanging out (as in hours and hours of card games over ONE cup of tea in a cafe), …and the showcasing of your new fashion items(?) 1,024 more words
