The WINDs Will Blow

Readers, faithful fans, accept no substitutes!

That guy in SHOE is probably doing the same thing. Not to mention Snoopy. If WINDS OF WINTER begins, "It was a dark and stormy night," you'll know it's not me.

Although... hmmm... that's not a bad first line...

(Snoopy stole it from Bulwer-Lytton, actually)

I was shown around Knebworth - the family home - by Bulwer-Lytton's great(I think)-grandson. It's fabulous: the bones of a sensible Tudor manor house, remade by Bulwer-Lytton in the grand Gothic style, with gargoyles and turrets all over. All nights shall be both dark and stormy ever after...

At least you're being read by Jason...even if he does try to cash in.

I think you should steal "Whoosh... Whoosh... Flurry flurry whoosh..."

That's good writing right there.

He was a dark and stormy knight, but Gregor Clegane really wanted to cuddle puppies and pick wildflowers...

I dunno, I once started a short story with "It was a dark and stormy night" and ended it with "and then he woke up" under threat of failure from my English teacher; not only did she give it a perfect score, but she told me to look into getting it published.

I'm an engineer, by the way, and haven't taken an English class since.

I have a vague recollection of you holding forth in a convention bar sometime back describing the last book in the series which, you claimed, would be a novel-length description of the snow blowing over a landscape of frozen corpses. Looks like Jason was listening...

I wondered..
...if you had read that strip, but it looks like you saved me the trouble of asking. The fact that your work was even mentioned at all shows how popular your series has gotten. (The fact that's it's been adapted into a series probably helped, too.)

I think the strip is funny. Whooosh, and all that flurry.
