A Scale Model of “Where I Saw It”

.

“Some people just will not be convinced by anything less than a scale model”

– The President and Founder

.

It’s not “their” fault really. In this day and age who could blame them. What with all the crackpots and charlatans making claims about this and that there just is, as The President and Founder himself says with regularity, “no telling”. Yet, should “you” abandon every foolish belief you hold dear, cast aside all your pitiful hopes and dreams, simply because of a few “bad apples”? The President and Founder says you shouldn’t, and that’s good enough for most everyone, but, if you want to go your own way, then, good luck to you, but, don’t come crying, filthy and exhausted, your feet cut to shreds by the broken pieces of all you thought you knew shattered on the ground, because all you’ll get is the rest of us standing there with our arms folded and heads shaking, and maybe even a few tsk-tsks, or even, tut-tuts from those in the crowd more disgusted than the rest.

This is truly a scale model. I should know, I saw it there, and then built it myself. What could I possibly gain by using incorrect measurements? I ask you, who would benefit?

Dear friends,

This is really something here, isn’t it?. It does remind one of where I saw it, don’t you think? The object on the left that is. The object on the right is a whole other story, it looks like a device for grinding something into a fine powder, or, for generating an electrical charge. Hell, if the thing on the left is a building though, which you’d think it was, with what looks like a door in it, then the thing on the left is completely out of proportion to it as it has been drawn here. That is unless, no, I can’t imagine that would be it, no, no one would, OK, best not even think about it.  Alright, well, anyway, that’s what I think, what about you, got any ideas?  To tell the truth so much time has passed since seeing it that I can barely remember where I really saw it as opposed to the pictorial representation of the place, and, as far as what I saw, I think I made that clear, I’m not telling.

A way that is undesirable or worrying

“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”

– H.P. Lovecraft

The richly mysterious, infinitely more terrifying other

If only I had a dollar for every time, you know what I’m sayin’?

There I am, sprawled out on the couch, under the sheltering branches of a gnarled old oak tree, up in the attic beside a window overlooking the now unused swing set of my child hood just reading, that’s it, just reading, and, without fail, some fuckhead comes along and asks “Whatcha readin’, Jack”? “Well, asshole” I says, “I am reading…” what ever it is I happen to be reading which most likely is really good, and you should read it, too. Anyway, seein’ as you’re gonna disturb me right when I’m gettin’ to the good part, I’m gonna just tell you right up front what I’m readin’ which will hopefully keep your gums from flappin’ until I get to the ending.

I picked up this baby in one of those spinning racks filled with unknown treasures backed in paper just waiting patiently for someone such as myself to take it home. They all do their best to stand out with half clothed women (and men) horrible looking creatures red eyed and sharp toothed, sword wielding heroes, malevolent robots, and all manner of other things you just have to find out about by reading the words the pictures are promising. This book looked kind of dark and it promised in words to be a “MIND-ASSAULTING ADVENTURE IN AN UNKNOWN WORLD”. For god’s sake! Call me crazy but I love a good mind assault now and again, and unknown worlds? Shit, I dig unknown worlds, motherfucker. Who doesn’t? No one worth a damn. That’s what humans are always striving for, don’t you know, the unknown worlds! Anyway, A Maze of Death is A-mazing! I wouldn’t bullshit you. Hell, Phil Dick was all cranked up on speed when he wrote this, sweating it out in some shed out there in California. What more do you need to convince you? Geeez!

Scary Castle protected by dark force field. That’s my guess.

maze1Back Cover

Jesus, fuck! Did you read the blurb? It’s brilliant!

.

Fourteen earthly exiles

on an island in boundless space.

Fourteen victims of a

murderous power. Is this nameless

menace the product of their

own darkest imaginings-or some

richly mysterious, infinitely

more terrifying other?

.

I’m stealing that “richly mysterious, infinitely more terrifying other”. You’ll be seeing a lot of that, thanks copywriter guy, whoever you are.

Here they’re still trying their damnedest to convince you to buy this thing.

C’mon, man, Philip K. Dick isn’t mucking about he’s writing serious stuff, and he’s dedicated, this isn’t some damn pastime for him!

All I have to say is, if the front and back covers didn’t convince you already, you must be dead inside.

Oh, and check out the note someone wrote about the new author and his book “Neromanzer”. Wonder if he ever read it?
