NOTHING’S MORE BASTARDISED THAN HISTORY.-Pomegranates
History’s just a story that loses nothing in the telling.
There’s no point explaining my story to the majority of
the dead. People are as self-obsessed in death as they are in life. More
so. They shuffle around in a vague approximation of what they
were. I tried to talk to them, but all a dead baker wants to discuss is
the price of flour. They’ve learnt nothing from dying.
I want to talk to you though, Bear. I want to tell you everything.
I’m am so excited to meet M.R. Carey and Louise Carey next week at the launch of Absinthe’s next novellas. Also the other Absinthe authors who will be in attendance – Cavan Scott, George Mann, Jen Williams and Laura Mauro.
