Addendum: digest update

Spooky just finished sending out Sirenia Digest #2. And I just wanted to say, again, that I'm really, really, really sorry this one's coming in so late. Thanks for your patience and for waiting. I'm going to do my damnedest to keep that from happening again. Anyway, I do hope you guys enjoy it.

Don't be sorry. With all due respect to "Orpheus at Mount Pangaeum," "Pony" was worth waiting for.

I second this.

I agree wholeheartedly.

I'm very glad you liked it. I'm quite pleased with the piece.

I love the use of mythology in the vignettes so far; not that myth isn't strongly in play in your non-erotic fiction, but it seems particularly heightened here. (On that topic, satyrs are sometimes depicted as half-horse rather than half-goat -- you can see the horsetails on some of the Attic vase paintings -- but they are exclusively male, I'm afraid. So I have no idea about the proper mythological equivalent of the ponygirl.) Even when it's little more than a title and an allusion, the resonances are great.

I can't wait to read it (I'll be printing it out on the special colour printer at work... as I did with the first one!)

Hmmm...

On the one hand, I could be mad over a document that's a few days late (something easily forgivable since, in my day job, I run late over documents).

On the other hand, it looks rather awesome. Plus, y'know, boobs.

Yeah, I think we'll let you off the hook this time.

(Seriously, it's quite beautiful.)

I had the stupidest thought the other day- I just wondered what sort of vignette you'd write about chocolate. I think the idea came out of the notion that the next digest comes out around Valentine's Day. If you ever were to recreate Harlan Ellison's experiment of sitting in a bookstore window and writing a story based on an idea shouted at you, I think I'd yell chocolate.

Actually, I've done that already. At Fiddler's Green in Nov. '04, Neil and I had to write a two-page Sandman comic under those very conditions.

I forgor about the two-pager. Was that ever online or printed anywhere, or will it never see the light of day outside the convention?

And now I'm in the mood for chocolate...and the Godiva store's on the way home...

Someone posted on LJ somewhere, against our wishes. I don't know if it was ever taken down or not, nor can I recall where it was posted. I don't think there are any plans to print it, not that I've heard. Everyone at the con got a copy, tho'.

Well, given that DC's going to go back into print on the Sandman series with the "Absolute" edition- oversized hardcovers, slipcases, recoloring for the first 20 issues- maybe it'll work its way into one of those volumes. Or not. :)

Then again, maybe it will be just a temporary piece of art, coming into being and then dying off quickly, slipping into dream. Fitting for the work, really.

No worries! I think most of us would rather have great reading that's a little slow in coming then work that you aren't happy with.
