"He extended the tube and, as he pressed the button, described a semi-circle with the instrument. Immediately the tall guardsmen toppled over like so many tenpins, and Rob stepped across their bodies and penetrated to thereception room, where a brilliant assemblage awaited, in hushed and anxious groups, for opportunity to obtain audience with the king. I hope his Majesty isn't busy, said Rob to a solemn-visaged official who confronted him"

Good Heavens! I had no idea actual people were reading my blog so I'd just been posting to it whenever I needed to vent from a fit of depression or try to impersonate Holden Caulfield. I'm even more amazed that a stranger actually read my blog entries and still wanted to read my novels.

This is a 42 chapter satire I've been posting in on a forum for some friends to see. It's not edited or polished or anything but that will be done when I decide to publish it. Do have a look while I peruse your blog here.

I have to say, I enjoy your work, and you're a lot braver than I am. I've posted maybe one poem in my blog in the year that I've had it. I did post two of my novels somewhere, but that's only because I was sure they'd be well received.

Ah it's really interesting to read the blog of someone in England. I set three of my novels there and I have to say that what comes naturally to you was a pain for me. I had to smack my hand every time I tried to write customary measurements and then convert them to metric. Why the US wants to lag behind the rest of the world I have no idea...

But your poetry is certainly remarkable. It sounds very original, which is something that I always worry about in my own writing. I hope to see more of it sometime and will try to post a poem in my own little place and get away from all this doom and gloom I've been under. It shouldn't be hard due to spring and all.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
