Time Suck of the Week

20 July, 2008 | | No Comment

Now, I’m not saying that this is the right time suck for you. (Yes, you. You know who you are.) But I will say it’s worth your time, to have a few of your moments sucked up by reading an on-line magazine (see, you don’t even have to get up!) called Abyss & Apex

I found it this week, and I assure you, it does not suck – except my time, which it sucks delightfully. In particular, two stories from the current issue – The Number of Angels in Hell and Väinämöinen and the Singing Fish (by the delightful and talented mrissa) – stand out as excellent.  Not to mention the guest editorial by Dear Cthulhu.  I mean, it doesn’t get much better than having the ancient old ones penning your copy!  

I’ll bet he’s a bitch the production room, though:  “Where’s that thrice-damned shoggoth with my coffee?  If we miss deadline once more this month, Yog will have my mglw’nafh heads on a five-sided platter!  I know they say Cthulhu wgah’nagl fhtagn, but that doesn’t mean you slacker scum get to as well!  And if that damn shoggoth is fhtagn on the job, I’ll have its tentacles making coffee on Rl’yeh – the hard way!”

OK, imagine if you will:

“Beaker, what’s the matter?”
“Nnnnnnnnn! Eeeeee! Old Ones!!!”
“Old ones, huh? OK, um, Kermit, how’re you doing?”
“It’s not easy, bleeding green. Green is the color of the ichor that falls eternally from the wounds in my soul after having gazed on the madding visage of the -”
“Alrighty then! Jump cut to – the Swedish Chef! Is that a new cookbook, chef?”
“Necronominicon? Bork bork bork shoggoth, bork bork bork yog-sothoth, Bork Borkny’thomonic Bork Ahazerad! BORK BORK BORK YOG-AZUL BORK NY’THLOTEP -”
“I think that’s about all we have time for tonight! Tune in tomorrow, if there is one!”

OK, maybe not…
