would it matter how they dressed? You can polish a turd all ya want, in the end, its still a turd.

The thing in that interview that was really just jaw dropping is how they are saying "we were thinking about this" then "we check the notes and bam, there it is", unbelievable.

*You guys hear a loud thumping noise, followed by a girlish scream*

Sorry about that; was a little tied up there.

I publicly swore revenge on Nicole Richie. I'm not entirely sure why, but...

Anyway, I'm not trying to be offensive here, but CL isw giving life to all the streoe type of Ga- I mean homosexual people. I'm not even sure if he cares, but this is what norm- I mean straight people have against them. Food for thought.

Now food for Sadistic girlfreind's belly...

You're right, I don't give a fuck what you think. Bigots can shove their "tolerance" up their fat arses.

Grrrrr.

I have yet to listen to this thing all the way through in one sitting. I guess it's time we have a transcription as well, no? No doubt there are untold gems still waiting to be discovered. :twisted:

Hey, I didn't notice this addition to your signature Chig!

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings.
—Kevin J. Anderson


He said WHAT? How can someone not get through Banks' style? WTF????? Banks writes pretty readable (not in a bad or simplistic way) stuff, full of action(s) and dialogue. How in the hell is that hard to get through? Even LeGuin doesn't write very "dense" or difficult to read stuff IMO - what a total child this hack is. :roll:

I think the most relevant part is the "critical darlings" bit. ;)

You can always tell a shitty writer or one that has let him/herself get lazy: they bitch and moan about "so-called 'professional' critics". I notice the two hacks do exactly that towards the end of their talk.

Definitely. The Chief Hack showing how sensitive he is about being a hack.

Memo for you, Kevin: real writers don't go around hiking for three weeks and think they've produced a book. Only hacks do that, you fucking hack.

very articulate and well put :)


Speaking of hiking, shouldn't Kevin be in better shape since he dictates so many books each year?

You'd think, huh?

Evidently he's now been hiking in the mountains ("volcanos") of Costa Rica. (Another of his "outings" without the ole ball-n-chain. He did one of those on their Alaska cruise last year, too. ;) )

Ends his latest blawg with a bitch-n-moan as well. :roll:

If he can't get through Ursula K Le Guin, how did he ever get through Frank Herbert? I've never read Banks, but I can understand not getting China Mieville's. Probably hard to read books that dense while hiking and hacking.

the more I read the blogs and start to understand how he works, the more I'm convinced he has some kind of ADD, an extremely short attention span, a lack of concentration, and, most likely, a problem with retention and comprehension. I think he has in fact read Frank's Dune books, but I don't think he retained the information correctly or comprehended what he read. He has talked about how fast he reads. With his little fevered brain jumping from one universe to another, it's a wonder we haven't yet seen a passage about Paul being laid low by Kryponite. And reading Frank's work with an eye as to how to twist it into his own universe, he's probably misunderstood alot of basic concepts. And, again, he's just not that smart of a person. I don't think he could understand the politics even if he read slowly and had somebody explaining it to him.

See if a library near you has copies of any of his "Saggy Sons" books. Don't actually check them out; you can probably get a good enough idea of how good they aren't just leafing through them. His ideas of politics, economics, science...they're all fucked.

(As a bonus, look for one of the volumes of Brians "Timeweb" series, too!)

Hideously good fun! :lol:

I have never picked up a Seven Suns book, but I have looked through the first two Timeweb books. I read about one hundred pages of the first. It was terrible. I cannot believe he found someone to publish that dog.

It's strictly from his last name. A guy who was not Frank Herbert's son who produced the exact same manuscript would have been laughed out of the publisher's office.

That's one reason I cringe whenever Byron or Hacky praise Bri-Bri's work or call him an "author." He's anything but that. He's living proof that it's not a hereditary trait.
