I feel dirty and used - what a wonderful way to end the week. Hurrah for Falconer!
You are fucked up in a very interesting and unique manner. Thanks for posting more Falconer.
Cannot *wait* to see that particular encounter.
scrotal treatures - that's a keeper. Thanks as always, you know precisely how to brighten my morning.
So, I've got to ask. Does Falconer have anything to do with your daughter's fondness for birds of prey?
There was a film about Peter Whitehead some years back called THE FALCONER...
I'm surprised Falconer didn't sample the boy's vigorous sperm for "research".
Honestly? Falconer's starting to scare me a little bit.
... at which point someone pulls out a firing squad of slash-fic.
oh i've just come.
I've just read this over breakfast.
The Falconer stories, while I enjoy them, make me glad I don't eat breakfast.
Your writing rivets a person. It's like pulling back a curtain to reveal a world more horrific than they could possibly imagine and yet, which they instantly recognize. I applaud you, as always, for accomplishing what so few can, which is to display what is common in a way that is new.
If you know another contemporary writer who can write like this, who doesn't have a Geocities account into which he keys his spiraled notebook, please, do toss me a name. Otherwise, I'm going to reread your latest mind fruit. Your writing is the healthiest addiction I've ever had.
Well, good for the body, candy for the mind, poison for the soul as it may be. : )
You want my friend Richard Kadrey. Start here,
click "next" at the end, repeat 63 times.
If anyone wants me, I'll be in the shower.
Ew. Ew. Ew.
Good, but... ew.
You are creating quite a fucked up CSI. When do you introduce your token characters?
Ah, the return of Falconer - not that he ever really left. Or did he?
In any event, I enjoyed reading this - thanks!
I read these and look for the truth, the hook -it's more something that I feel, a gut thing. Theres something here, but I'm not quite sure what you'd call it, beyond truth. Truth of what? Life? Human nature? Maybe.
I always liked naturalistic fiction. Don't know if this is strictly speaking naturalistic, but it's got that grit and unflinching eye, toward the characters as well as the situation in which they find themselves.
excellent way to begin my morning. (EST)
not all i require is nicotine and tar in my lungs.
exeunt, as Falconer would say.
No more long walks in the country for you. All that fresh air did ... something.
Wrote this before I left...!
Aw, big deal. This sort of thing goes on in Kentucky all the time.
Oops, I've perpetuated a stereotype, haven't I?
Falconer would say, "Exeunt, stage left, even...!"
Sad thing is that if this happened in reality, I woudn't be suprised.
Truth telling bastard, mr. Ellis?
I doubt very much that the truth is in Falconer.
A large part of me wonders about Falconers upbringing.
I find backstories to be excuses for bad behavior. I don't want an excuse.
Personally, I'd be happy if I died never knowing.
"my precious scrotal treasures"
You have cursed my circle of friends, for this phrase will be peppering my speech from now until doomsday (which by my calculations will be in about three weeks...if I did the math correctly).
God, will I miss you when I'm in China.
another victory for deductive reasoning. If only sherlock holmes could have lived in such a brave new world with such crime in it!
