This is it. I have eaten corn and found the taste too bitter to live. I have nothing left, my friends. This corn has damned me. Tell my wife I love her. Tell my many girlfriends that I had no wife. And if they seem suspicious, tell them I love them, too.

I think it's time for some Sam Sykes fanfic poetry, maybe in the style of the Niebelungenlied.

I guess I am my own arch-nemesis, being half math and half art nerd, oh and half jock to boot (let's not quibble over how many halfs in a person). I read your screed, now please don't kill me in my sleep.

Good thing you are a writer.
I assume you will create a suitable character who really deserves it.

Woo!
Cat Rambo originally shared:
 
Yay for +Sam Sykes 's BLACK HALO finally being out for the Kindle! (And if you're a long-time fantasy reader with a sense of humor who hasn't tried his books, start off with THE TOME OF THE UNDERGATES (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0063JTJ4A/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=carawr-20)

I was looking at the Goodreads reviews for the first book and was surprised to see they're all over the map. It seemed to me the lower rating ones didn't get some of the humor, the way the book subverts and celebrates standard sword & sorcery tropes (I mean, seriously, look at the take on the Drow, which I think is hysterical and points to all the things I always found a little stupid about that race) while delivering really interesting, likeable characters.

Speaking of which, I'm working on prepping my "this is the best stuff I read/watched/listened to in 2011" post for the Aqueduct Press blog. What's on YOUR best of 2011 list?

I say "guess what I did today" and no one ever acts like it's good news.

Today on "Sam Sykes is an Asshole and Here is His Blog:" Is a novel that frustrates worth more than a novel that appeases or is Sam just DUMB AS HECK?

I dig your point - but somehow the line is artistry. Some authors can make you watch a frustrating character and go 'what a cosmic f*kup - I can't *wait to see what happens next". Where others (present company and all relations of course excluded) just make you toss the book and worry about how much you aged in the time you read.
