Thx @christine_g10! Enjoyed the vidchat with your class immensely even if w/o audio to me you were just a scary crowd of chuckling mimes.
I’m chatting with Dr. Sander’s “Gothic” course at UC Fullerton today, which studied The Gorelets Omnibus. In that class? Give a shout out!

One day the cycle was broken and not a soul yawned. This caused a backup. Somewhere a baby exploded. But with it the yawning ended for good.

@NataniaBarron Great line, Natania!
@jessieherself What a happy welcome! I excitedly wave back and look forward to yer tweets! Be prepared; mine are…dark.
@Lilydenise Thx Lily! This is one of the things we lose when libraries and bookstores close, I think. Public reading is limited to menus.
@AntoinetteOuell The “passing down of cassettes” with reading on them is a fabulous idea! Port it over to the digital age with podcast?
@gariovich Meant a lot to me. Thank you.
@STCrowley LOL. Hey, literacy is a superpower: it’s INVISIBLY productive!
@jmlandels Truth. We teach more powerfully when we aren’t explicitly trying to teach.
Big thanks to the shocking number of folks who favorited and retweeted my “literacy” post: twitter.com/MikeArnzen/sta…
@jamesscottbell If it makes us “hyphenates” serving our stories, all the better. Right now our hyphenates are all on the marketing side.
Don’t just read to children. Read in front of them. Pull from your book case as often as you do your dish cabinet. Live your literacy.
“afloat”: we are pulsing like sonar / with limited range / pinging reality / missing the treasures / of the lower depth
You are so kind @larazontally! We’d be lucky to have you in the MFA and we do have a great community, but w/o residency we have no TAs, etc.

A zombie turkey stirs in your fridge. It’s okay. He’s harmlessly headless. But that won’t give you much to aim for. I say eat it, unalive.

@JustAfterSunset Sorry… I’m in the fugue state I assume before Dexter appears on my TV set and tells me to do things. You’ve got E.
#DexterNotes “Dexter” = implies “dexterity”; etymology: on the “right” side of a shield, ergo, defensive, just. “Morgan” = morgue-in.

I have to defer to the publisher to announce things @tanyatwombly as it’s sort of a secret project. But I hope to share info when I can.

When people say “Welcome to my world.” Respond: “Thank you for summoning me with the goat blood and all…Now what can I do for you?”

Great point about The Weird @frame_diver (Book might be too big for classroom use — not sure — but it just won a World Fantasy Award).
If I asked you what was “new” or “trending” in the horror >fiction< genre today, what would you say? I’m updating a class and am curious.
In an alternate universe, states are purple and green. And an Latino-Irish rocker named Bamba O’Rodney is predicted to win by a mudslide.

HAH! Totally @sheldonhigdon… As Zombie Franklin once said, “The disinterred gets the worm.”
Slow zombies = uncanny horror that will claw into your dreams. Fast zombies = action movie bologna. Still zombies = not really zombies.
