"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
My brother actually read the manuals. And made his own five-sided dice out of wax. Nerd.
Even if I hadn't started reading the Avery Cates series (and reading his blog), these mini-Q&A would do it.These are the softest-sell I've ever witnessed, but they certainly sell the dry wit and laconic voice of Mr. Somers!
"The books were friggin' huge!" Yes, there are still boxes of them on our basement from my hubby's "satanic" days.Jeff really is a demigod- he has figured out how to give himself a voice beyond the actual work. Well done!xxAM
I can't believe I have had the same experiences. I played "fake" D & D. Some idiot public speaker came to my highschool to warn that D & D caused Satanism, and I think I even saw that movie. (It burned my eyes!) I was never forbidden to play D & D. I tried to move on to World of Warcraft (the physical version) but by that time I had boobs, and all the other players in the group were guys with no social skills. It got too awkward.
I'll bet my collection of polyhedral dice the movie "Mazes and Monsters" was based on the "novel" a concerned neighbor gave my parents to warn them...too late! Bwahahaha!(Nice job, Jeff!)
Jeff has a marvelous voice. This reminds me of the great old time radio shows, where the host would just enthrall the audience with personal little stories for hours each day. Lee Leonard and Brad Crandall and Mike Feder used to have radio shows where they spoke about their experiences in this same quiet and interesting way. I loved this.
Bwa ha ha! Awesome. Loved the punchline at the end.:::Waving fan girl pom pons::::
