I must have an icon.

Specifically, an icon that says "Neovictorian Nightmares: I bought tickets before Warren Ellis pushed the show."

(The one saying "I'm too old for any job which requires me to have a positive attitude." is up there, too.)

(1) [livejournal.com profile] commodorified bought me a copy of Eats, Shoots & Leaves. No, I didn't already have one. Yes, I love it. :)

(2) {Local} The public library[1] has a copy of James Lovegrove's Days. This is good, as all my efforts to lay hands upon a copy for lending out to people have failed. I will continue to scour the used bookstores. Meantime, I *really* recommend this one.

(3) Picked up a book at the library called My Work Is Not Yet Done, attracted by the screamy-face on the spine. (SF/F and mystery have their own categories for hardbacks. Horror does not. Horror paperbacks are shelved waaaayyyy over in the corner on a shelf marked "Horror/Western", a label which always makes me smile.) Dustjacket had no information (beyond the author's name, Thomas Ligotti--yes, I have heard of him). Frontispiece, on the other hand, had the subtitle "Three Tales of Corporate Horror".[2]

This will suit my mood, I think. Work has gotten a little odd lately.
[1] Where I have recently renewed my card, see (3).
[2] Also, the information that the book was published by Mythos Books, LLC, which got me to look up the entity in question. Looks potentially interesting, if not as easy to work through as Subterranean Press.
