Just a quick note to explain my recent absence. I’ve had a lot of stuff going on in my personal life recently, and it’s created a major distraction for me, resulting in a lapse in blogging. Please bear with me. Besides, Boardwalk Empire has finished its season, so there won’t be any more of those exciting reviews for a while. I’m finishing up a Mickey Spillane novel which I’ll be reviewing, and I’m gathering some thoughts for a new post on the PC Gestapo.
And speaking of the PC Gestapo, don’t you know that they’d just love to send all of us uncooperative authors to a “re-education camp” where we can learn to “write the way we should” while we grow crops for “the people”. What do you think Mickey Spillane’s response would be if they told him to quit writing all those “offending” words?
