@PB

A breathtaking set of photos - the camera eye at its best. I am tempted to comment on each one, but my comments would only ruin their nature/strength.

But what I will say, is that I'm honored you posted them in The Book Lodge.

( Take that, National Geographic Magazine.

Bitches! :)  )


They fit in very well here. Every great library or bookstore has photos/objects displayed.

I would think a virtual "book club/lodge" would as well. Some gravitas amongst the expected  book cover art.

Thank you.  It's fun to go back and look through the photos from that trip once in awhile.

Being a logical, sane, & practical person, I too, would have boarded the plane as you did.

However.

After reaching cruising altitude, I would start thinking:

Why the f$&@ did I get on this go$(+!3$ plane when that f+&#ing passenger was reading that motherfu&#-!g cocksu&${| book?!?  That PARTICULAR !%$@&King book?! Could the Universe be any more clear, Cam?! You deluded idiot!  Holy Freaking Frankenf@#!!! Talk about a literal sky burial!

F@#k!!!
F@#k!!!
F@#k!!!
F@#k!!!
F@#k!!!
F@#k!!!
F@#k!!!

After landing:

I knew it was no big deal. Not at all. People read all kinds of books. Just another plane trip. I like to make up fictional reactions and use them later when developing characters. Helps pass the time. I wouldn't care if a passenger were reading a book on making bombs.

Exactly! Pretty much my reaction. But I was cool

You're welcome.  I just googled the Jokhang temple and the old Lhasa mosque images, I recognize the buildings but everything looks so different from when I was there.

Another place I went on that trip that has changed dramatically was China's far west Xinjiang Province, where all the trouble with the Uighurs and other Moslems is.  There were very few Chinese there at the time, no modern buildings, few paved roads...

32) FIVE DECEMBERS (2021)

by James Kestrel

The release date is Oct 26, 2021. I read the uncorrected proofs that Charles Ardai at Hard Case Crime sent me as a PDF, but changes will be minimal. Your reading experience should be similar to mine.

If you like pulp crime/detective and WWII period events/history, your day has come. The epic story spans all of WWII.

Highly recommended.

Due to a fulfillment problem, it was never received.)

The Wheel of Time Series which I had read about 150 of is being released on Amazon in a day or two. Much like Game of Thrones which I had read about 45 of before they mercifully released that on HBO so it could end

Sorry about the run-on sentences but they do justice to the greediness of Jordan and Martin who certainly knew how to milk the cow until it mooed "STOP!" and then continued on

And still.
Hasn't even shipped.
All because I wanted the hard cover.
Merry Christmas.

Man, Bruce just doesn't stop. I'll bet he wrote it while flying his plane and singing Still Life

HA!  ;D  One Bruce flies the plane, one writes the books, and two take turns interchanging during concerts.  I always wondered why he'd disappear on stage every one and a while, then come back moments later from the other side wearing something else.  You solved it!

By the way @Camazotz Automat I just found out he's starting a podcast in a few days.  It's called Psycho Schizo Espresso.   His cohost is Oxford University psychologist Dr. Kevin Dutton.

@ShayP
Thanks for letting me know.  I was unaware.

I need multiple Camazotzs to keep up with Bruce news!
