B. Kliban

     Paul's previous post put me in mind of cartooning genius B. Kliban, who achieved fame and fortune via his Cats, but whose work is so, so much more.  

     I discovered Kliban in college, where copious amounts of drugs were invaluable in my comprehension of his weirder pieces.  Kliban was a huge influence on cartoonists like Gary Larson and Roz Chast, among others -- and his best cartoons, in all their bizarre profundity, are like visual zen koans.



If Paul W, Edomor, Colleen, amd Sunpony will send me their addresses at:


I'll send you books.  I'm using elements of your ideas for my paragraph.  I may not get them out immediately, but they will get out.

Blog of the Rudester

Do you visit Rudy Rucker's blog?


If not, you're missing out on a treat. Just let me mention two recent bits.

Rudy's musings on William Craddock and his Sixties Novel BE NOT CONTENT, (Remember, we'll be covering Craddock's TWILIGHT CANDELABRA here soon.)

And a link to the latest issue of FLURB, a digital SF zine full of new fiction, from Rudy, me, and many others.

Seek ye the gnarl, and live!
