MEXICO’S VIGILANTE TANKS»

Back in 1981, the cult movie “Mad Max II: The Road Warrior” turned Australia into a post-apocalyptic wasteland where bandits fought in beefed-up trucks with huge battering rams and gun turrets. Fast-forward three decades to Mexico’s drug war, and vigilantes and gangsters have made such techno-barbaric road wars a reality.

I was going to start reading The Getaway God by Richard Kadrey, but walked into the kitchen to see some glittery skull jerk ganked my copy.

Remember, it is no sign of weakness or defeat that your manuscript ends up in need of major surgery. This is a common occurrence in all writing, and among the best writers.
William Strunk Jr. (via maxkirin)
You do have a leash, finally, as a writer. You’re holding a dog. You let the dog run about. But you finally can pull him back. Finally, I’m in control. But the great excitement is to see what happens if you let the whole thing go. And the dog or the character really runs about, bites everyone in sight, jumps up trees, falls into lakes, gets wet, and you let that happen. That’s the excitement of writing plays—to allow the thing to be free but still hold the final leash.
Harold Pinter (via writingquotes)
I just received cover proofs for the reissue of my first novel, Metrophage.

“You’ve got forever; and somehow you can’t do much with it. You’ve got forever; and it’s a mile wide and an inch deep and full of alligators.”
Jim Thompson
