Bill's Haiku



Yes is the wrong word
Ever circling the abyss
I won't sleep tonight

It was a wrong number that started it, the telephone ringing three times in the dead of night, and the voice on the other end asking for someone he was not.

William S. Burroughs: The Cat Inside



  Fletch, the brat cat, the boy cat who paws down tapestries. He just now jumped up on the table where I was reading. Then, irritated by cigarette smoke from the ashtray, he jumped against a chair where I had draped my coat, and knocked the chair over. It was quite deliberate. The lovable little demon cat. And so sad in his limitations, his dependence, his pathetic little histrionic gestures.
  The thought of anyone mistreating him! He has been mistreated so many times over the centuries, my little black Fletch with his glistening coat and his amber eyes. The way he will suddenly rush into the room while I am lying down in laziness and disinclination to get on with the endless salt mines of The Western Lands. Jump on my chest and snuggle against me and put his paws up to my face. Other times his eyes are all black pupil, as sure an indication of "Watch out!" as a horse with its ears laid back. Then he will bite and scratch.

You're dreaming of him
On a rainy day in the woods
It doesn't ever matter

Premature Burial (1962)



An artist grows distant from his new wife as an irrational horror of premature burial consumes him.

Tasteful Poe adaptation, which is entertaining, but has its lengths.

Lily Aldridge

Tales of Terror (1962)




Three tales of terror involve a grieving widower and the daughter he abandoned; a drunkard and his wife's black cat; and a hypnotist who prolongs the moment of a man's death.

Wonderfully told stories full of tasteful horror and some great humor.

Kim Jaspers

First Lines: Thomas Pynchon - The Crying of Lot 49



One summer afternoon Mrs. Oedipa Maas came home from a Tupperware party whose hostess had put perhaps too much kirsch in the fondue to find that she, Oedipa, had been named executor, or she supposed executrix, of the estate of one Pierce Inverarity, a California real estate mogul who had once lost two million dollars in his spare time but still had assets numerous and tangled enough to make the job of sorting it all out more than honorary.

Inni Kozak

The Village (2004)




The population of a small, isolated countryside village believe that their alliance with the mysterious creatures that inhabit the forest around them is coming to an end.

Unusual and effective period mystery with a great plot twist.
