Simple Minds Have Simple Needs

I finally subscribed to Talebones.

Is it because of the current current subscription drive? Is it because the new issue features Jim Van Pelt and Paul Melko (among others)–names to conjure with, in my view? Is it because, back when I was submitting to them (a few years ago now) they wrote some of the most agreeable, most encouraging rejection notes I’ve ever received?

No. All those things are true, but they’re not relevant. The real reason is much simpler.

!!!GIANT ONE-EYED ROBOT WITH PINCERS OF DEATH!!!

    An excellent reason to subscribe!

      Absolutely! Although, as far as I know, those are Pincers of Benevolence or something. That would still be okay with me. Or so I keep telling myself.

    Now you’re talking! Enough of that Greek stuff — unless it’s killer Greek robots of death!

    Ah, yes. It’s the simple things in life that truly matter. More people should learn to appreciate sunsets and warm summer days and an ice cold beer after mowing the lawn and giant one-eyed robots with pincers of death.

    Thanks, James, for subscribing! I hope to get that one-eyed monstrosity (with pincer) out in the mail soon.

      Monstrosities mailed to me and I didn’t even have to leave the house! We are truly living in the future. (I did leave the house briefly, but that was because of the giant radioactive rats.)

      [edited to add: Thanks!]
