Writing Moments

In bed with Amazing Spouse, watching ‘Captain Blood’:
Spouse: This is so CHEESY
Me: But! Basil Rathbone! Fencing! With Errol Flynn!

Spouse: The Robin Hood movie is better.  And they both fence there, too. Robin and Guy
Me:¬† …
(as a certain Robyn and Guy snort at the idea of… and I quote… ‘poncy’ fencing technique)

Mr. Rathbone: (in uber-French accent, brandishing rope) “You know, you can screw a man’s eyeballs out of his head with one of these…”

Me: Now, my Robyn would appreciate that.
Spouse: More like your Guy would.

And that, my friends, is when you realise that Mr. Rathbone needs to be “cast”, somehow, as one of the Wode villains.

Care to guess who?

Worldcon Cometh–

To Kansas City and I’ll be there at MidAmericon, hanging with the DSP Publications table in the Dealer’s Room as well as taking in various panels. ¬†Come and say hullo!

Also, if you’re interested in hearing a totally new bit from The Wode,¬†come to the Broad Universe reading on Sunday. I’ll be in some great company; you will definitely hear some great excerpts of the SF/F variety.
