Many Palimpsests

I am a fannish magpie with a lot of feelings about narrative structure, social and legal history, and pinnipeds.

This is a fannish side blog.

"I know what would happen [in Hollywood]. I look at Hollywood movie posters and I know what to expect. I do not want more fame or more money. I am happy with what I have. I do not want to make a film to make a film. I just want to have a nice life—not a career. […] I don’t actually enjoy making films, to be honest. Well, I enjoy acting, but only after they say ‘action’, when the camera is rolling. Hair and make-up, promotion, waiting around, I’m fed up with all of that. It’s taken up too many years of my life… Pride is more important to me now, because your films live with you forever. I’m never going to make another one that I don’t care for."

It has been a long time coming, but it is our deep pleasure to be able to reveal to you the cover art for Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Comic Strips Vol. 3: “Evidence to the Contrary”. While there are often delays that push back release dates, our production on this book was slowed by the sudden and unexpected passing of our co-editor and co-publisher, Kim Thompson, in June 2013.
There is a sense of bittersweet closure as we finalize this book and ready it for publication. The book should hit bookshelves in mid-December and is available for pre-order now. As ever, collections of these strips would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of devoted Pogo fans. Thank you.
