Between You, Me, and the Lamb Post

Spanish Inquisitor has just posted a reminder that the Nonbelieving Literati will begin commenting on our current book, Lamb, starting on November 1. Since I believe that you can never repeat yourself too much when dealing with a herd of cats, I'm restating the info here.

If you care to know a little more about the novel, you can click on the link at left or the one at SI’s blog. (He includes a picture of the cover, in case you don’t want to get this particular Lamb confused with any other books of the same name.) Either link will take you to Amazon’s Web site, where you can read a short description and some unreliable reviews by customers.

SI has gone out of his way to make it clear that you don’t necessarily have to be a nonbeliever to join our group, and I'd like to reiterate that. In fact, if we have enough believers that want to take part, we might even be enticed (you know how we atheists love to succumb to temptation) to form a theistic sub-chapter. As a special added incentive to all those anatheists (yeah, we need that word) who might be thinking about becoming members: you’ll get a link right here at an honest-to-no-goodness, genuine heathen’s blog. What could be better than that, eh?

The list of members, which you can find in the left column, includes the names of blogs the proprietors of which responded to my initial post. I’ve deleted a few names because the blogs seemed to have gone dormant. If I mistakenly dropped you from the roll, or if the son of somebody miraculously brought your site back to life, do ask to be listed again. On the other hand, if you think I’m taking your blog’s name in vain, let me know that you want to be removed. When I say “your wish is my command,” I really mean it – unlike some deities I could name.

So, Lamb it is. I’ve found that smearing the book with some mint jelly makes it much easier to digest.

I have about 50 pages to go, so I should be done with plenty of time to think through what I'm going to write. Of course, I probably won't. But you know, I could.

Ordinary:
You mean we're supposed to think through what we write? Thanks for cluing me in. I was just gonna use one of those refrigerator magneto kits and pick random phrases.

You're way too self-effacing. I read your post on Julian, remember? That seemed pretty damned thought-through to me. Unless you've got a magneto kit I've never seen.

What I want to know is where my friend Asshatter - er, Aesahaettr - is.

The Exterminator said...

Yeah, slut, I've been wondering about that myself. It seems that his domain has been "temporarily parked" for a long time. I hope he's not paying by the hour.

I read Lamb over a year ago, but now you've gone and gotten me interested in re-reading it. Good timing, too. I'm just about finished with the latest Thomas Holt novel I've been enjoying in my spare time.

Anyone have a formula for jelly stain removal?

I do like a blog post title with a pun in it.

Brendan:
You've come to the right place. Welcome to Groaners 'R' Me.

Just to let you know, I probably won't post as timely as I did last time. The book was on hold and overdue, and I'll be gone from home all next week. From what I've read, though (through the first chapter), I think I'll like it.

I have a pretty damn good magneto kit if I do say so myself. And my cat is really good at putting together phrases for me to blog on. :)

And, yes, I'd be happy to pick the next selection. I'll post something about it on Monday.
