In the mail today:
Gene Wolfe's "An Evil Guest."
I debated: do I wait? Do I savor it slowly? Do I save it for my trip to NYC with Krista coming up in a few weeks?
I decided: I will just read the first page, just to savor it, just to get a taste.
That was about eighty pages ago.
WOW, 1930's all over again! Beautiful damsal, strange alien; what's their relationship gona be like? Damsal looks kind of like a really hard hearted person. Is that why the alien, devil looking person is growling? Screaming? Did she stomp on his foot or tenacle or whatever it uses to locomote around? Is he really the hero and she the evil guest?ReplyDelete
I suppose we'll all just have to run out and buy the book to find out (or maybe I can just borrow it for a couple of days)?
