I hereby kiss rubywisp. You should too. Just because. She is a lovely wench.
I am still staggered by wiseacress's story, Dark Horse. I don't think I've told her though. Because I have been distracted by the monstrousness of computers and other things. Or because I just like to make excuses. It is an amazing story. (I talk in simple sentences. Brain off.) I read it at the same time I was finishing the final book of Denise Mina's Garnethill trilogy, recommended a while back by some smart person whose name I'm suddenly blanking on, and anyway, I noticed a similarity of style between their works, a kind of shadowed starkness of rooms and thoughts.
