Wow, I ghost in and out of the book blog world, don’t I?
Well, here’s a quick post about Angela Carter.
I LOVE HER.
She is so awesome. I love her short stories, have you read them? I recently acquired The Bloody Chamber, and devoured it, slowly. I loved her re-telling of “Puss-in-boots”, and I love her twist on the vampire story in “The Lady of the House of Love”. Actually, I love all her stories. The moment you start reading, you are seduced by her liquid, sensuous, unique prose. Her descriptions are amazing and they flow right off the page and into the weird parts of my imagination. She’s intelligent and humorous and elegant in her writing. I really must get my hands on another collection of her shorts.
Speaking of which, I’ve got a copy of Tanith Lee’s “Night’s Master”, coming in from Amazon. Has anyone sampled her short stories yet? Tanith Lee has always had a special place in my heart.
