35) MURGUNSTRUMM AND OTHERS (1977)

by Hugh B. Cave
Is that some sort of carp? ???
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

It does appear as such... Like a toadish, Lovecraftian fishhead...

I "think" it is a whimsical interpretation of a creature that is more dreadful and foreboding in the story. I shall know more soon. I don't want to Google any revelations.

(An aside: Pillars of the Earth bookmark -  that impish Jack just ignited a structure!)

" Hugh B. Cave

Long before he became the author of polished romances for the slick magazines, of best-seller novels and firsthand-researched travel books, Hugh B. Cave wrote some of the most grisly and chilling horror stories ever to appear in the pulps. He also corresponded briefly with H. P. Lovecraft, and made use of Lovecraft's terminology in a small number of stories."

The same friend who thoughtfully snagged a metal concert shirt for me in Daytona, just now sent this pic of a mystery thriller book she picked up for me while at a metaphysical used book store somewhere in Florida.  I've never heard of the title, but am looking forward to reading it as part of my 2021 sprint to the FINISH line.

(Will I be reading on New Year's Eve? Fuck me. I know already I will be.)

Obviously, she knows about my tomato project obsession I've been scribbling on and talking about.

(yawning)

This is just some late night slow motion Book Lodge drama, but I'm really  psyched she's reaching out with a tomato book at the same time she's cheerleading MY tomato tome.

Such female friends are rare.

I'm a lucky bastard.

A gorgeous gaudy heavy metal shirt AND a tomato titled murder mystery book?

Jesus Christ and his disciples on a pizza with Mary Magdalene serving the wine!

(This Frisbee-sized pizza wafer is my body. Eat it.)

The next Full Moon is the 19th. I'm certainly ~feeling it.~

Just a reminder, if New Year's Eve is a weeknight George will be hosting.

Oooohh, I should read that book again. I like to revisit it every few years.
I just finished a Gothic novel that was recommended to me. I was pretty sure I wouldn't like it but devoured it in a few days:

Two goats were behind a Hollywood studio eating an old movie film.

One goat said to the other, "Pretty good, huh?"

The second goat said, "Yeah, but the book was better"
