The Pope and Oz - I may be going to hell for this one.
The Holy Father enjoying a good book (but not “The” Good Book). As they said on MASH once, “You can fool some of the Papal all of the time, and all of the Papal some of the time, but you can not fool all of the Papal all of the time.” I’m hoping my Photoshop skills will get me into heaven.
I’m powering through Book 4 of the Oz Chronicles. I made a potentially major revelation in this book, and I’ve reached my total targeted word count. Now, it’s just a matter of reaching a conclusion that will be intentionally open-ended. That’s just the way I roll, kiddies.
Here’s a video clip of Ricky and Karl talking about the nature of infinity. Karl’s beauty as a philosopher is that he finds a way to make awkward sense while being totally wrong. Enjoy!
The title will most likely just be "The Dead."
UPDATE: IT’S HERE!!! It’s coming. Cross my heart. Stick a needle in my eye. This one is a mixture of total fiction, and fictionalized fact. The Destroyer in this one is a creep’s creep. I intensely don’t like him, and he’s based on a real guy, Albert Fish. Fish was a real boogeyman who ate children from about 1910 to the mid 1930’s. He bragged that he got kids in every state.He’s nasty and vile and the scariest bad guy Oz has come up against. The more I read about him the more I wish I could go back in time and throw the guy off the Empire State building. He’s an evil, evil man. Hope Oz can take him out. 🙂
I thought we’d be ready to go with Book 4 by March, but that didn’t happen, so I pushed it to April/May. I’ll hit May definitely.
