I always rejoice when a fellow blogger actually publishes something somewhere other than on a blog. The latest cause for celebration is our pal Carl Brannen who got one of his manuscripts accepted for publication.
I have read and thoroughly enjoyed Elisson’s book of 100-word stories and Velociman’s book about a boy’s adventure-filled journey through the underbelly of the South, but, as one who views gravity as the magical force that causes apples to fall from a tree onto one’s cruller (as opposed to sailing off into space), I have a bit of difficulty understanding Carl’s published work. Carl thinks in a space that is both foreign and completely amazing to me. It is nice to know that there are people out there who can and do think about these things.
Kudos to the Carlster.
