toilet wisdom

While cleaning out the notebook I keep in my bag in case inspiration strikes (actually, the last one I finished, which has been sitting on my desk for months waiting to be transferred into the equivalent file on my computer), I found the following quote. It was originally graffitied on the toilet wall in Borders Adelaide, 16 April 2005:

“I stand not by my country but by the people of the entire world.”

Has anyone ever heard that before? When I put it into Google, the first link proposed is to a book called George Bush by George Bush. The irony damn near killed me.

Very generous plug (and an interesting discussion of tie-ins) at Lou Ander’s blog.

Tasty new tome certain to work up an appetite for good food and good music (two of my favourite things) from my writing alter-ego, Sean Williams: The Ethnomusicologist’s Cookbook.

Harriet Klausner reviews Geodesica at ParanormalRomance Reviews (hurrah!): “The authors are great world builders, their prose lush, visual and so descriptive that the audience can actually picture it, especially Geodesica. There are many surprise twists so that the audience never becomes bored as they peruse this enthralling space opera.”
