  • Just bought an old Everyman's paperback of Smollett's Roderick Random.

    Still got a copy of Roderick and Roderick at Random so I'm wondering what Sladek borrowed from Smollett besides the book title.
    sigpic Myself as Mephistopheles (Karen Koed's painting of me, 9 Nov 2008, U of Canterbury, CHCH, NZ)

    Gold is the power of a man with a man
    And incense the power of man with God
    But myrrh is the bitter taste of death
    And the sour-sweet smell of the upturned sod,

    Nativity,
    by Peter Cape

                        • Just blew an enormous wodge on a bunch of Alasdair Gray books - the old mistake of wandering into the Edinburgh Book Festival with a credit card on one's person. Even worse: there were a good few more books I noticed in passing that will likely tempt me in tomorrow. Darn.

                          • A card properly used Rothgo!
                            The Fall of Kelvin Walker is still one of my favourite books.
