Viva La Espania

I blame Aaron Polson and his blog about Googling his name. I just found a Spanish review of my story 'Uncle Eric's Leather Bound Tale' which appeared in issue 2 of Arkham Tales.

I quote:

The secret to melt humans and turn them into trunks.


Very strange text, but fun to read.

That'll do me. Much appreciated.

He made me google myself, too! I found my name on a couple Japanese sites. It was a good day : )

A very good day...

Alan W. Davidson said...

That's really cool! As I mentioned to Aaron...there are worse places it could have appeared, especially with "leather bound" in the title.

Cate Gardner said...

Goodness, yes. Ahem!

You should set up a Google alert for your name - then you'll get email updates anytime people are talking about you behind your back! Err.....I mean praising your skills :)

Cate Gardner said...

I have an alert set up but it missed this review. Though most of the time the alert sends me info on Cate Blanchett because... Well, I don't know why.

Ha, pretty cool. I never find anything interesting for my name.

Josh Reynolds said...

All I get is stuff about the painter whose name my parents borrowed.

Jeremy D Brooks said...

Muy bueno!

Aaron Polson said...

How fun. I'm going to melt some humans as soon as I figure out how to turn one into a trunk.

Andrea Allison said...

Awesome! I, for once, resisted temptation. No googling for me.

I will not be happy until I find reviews of my stories in German. (Say, how many pages did you have to sift through to find this review?)

Jamie Eyberg said...

I keep coming up with a Sheila Eyberg who is a prominent and well published psychologist (I think) in my searches. Apparently she works with someone named Jamie. Weird.

Rabid Fox said...

Ha. Priceless. Thank you, Google Translate.

Rich said...

Yeah, I haven't found a lot. I don't think I've ever been reviewed as such, which is a bit of bummer.

That said, I did find a Randy Sampson, goddammit, I might just change my name!

Wahey for England! (sorry, couldn't resist)

Hahaha oh wow-- that is amazing. Also, Alan has a point about the leather-bound thing... kind of a shame nothing came up in reference to that, actually.
