Have you had one of these days?

I’ve had too many of them.

While it’s true that it’s been some months since I last received an installment of Gimli/Bill slash with a hopeful “Can you give me your thoughts on this?” cover note, it was part four of six, and I employ the use of a mail drop for screening purposes for damn good reason. An angry Bill/Gimli slash writer is not someone I particularly want to face at the best of times, and when I haven’t responded to the last three installments OR when I have, saying exactly what’s on my mind; well, these are not exactly the best of times.

Imagine my surprise when I found a comic which perfectly illustrated my feelings. No need to reply personally to those invariably hand-scrawled tomes; simply return to sender, with this attached.

  1. A fine cartoon.

    It reminds me a bit of Glen Baxter. (eg. this one.) I’m quite fond of him. Do you know his stuff? (I’m afraid the website is a bit clumsy. I know him from his books.)

    I’m sorry to hear of your impending editorial perils.

  2. I had a Glen Baxter book, but loaned it to someone and that was the last I saw of it. Not doing that again.

    I have no real editorial perils. I’ve gotten into the habit of charging $10 a page, and that generally backs them off right smartly.
