Comments: Anchor Bay have just released a remastered I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, the original, with a fine commentary by the director. It's well worth seeing this again. He uses almost entirely ambient sound and long edits. And Camille Keaton's performance is intelligent and incredibly brave. Wish the guys cast and the writing had been nearly as good. I think she must have bet her career on this and lost, and what a loss it was...but still, all these years later, she stunned me... - D

Comments: Hi, Jack.
This is just a quick message as you are obviously a busy man writing those sweet fucking stories .
In my eyes you have written numerous fantastic novels, but which novel do you personally feel is your best? I know that this is a hard question but which novel do you feel stands head above all others?
And what is your personal favourite novel (what you didnít pen), everyone has a novel that they revisit because they are such a fan of that particular book so which novel is like that for you?
A long time fan and fucking proud.

Comments: Thank you John very much for the explanation of the word - you are right it is from Ed Lee, not too much gets me squmish, but that short story well - I think you got the picture

Comments: Hi folks...PHILIPP -- thanks! and believe me, we're working on getting all the books out in Germany. They've just bought rights to THE WOMAN, so look for it soon...GAIL -- COW is indeed being published in hardcover in back of THE WOMAN, not separately. It's not in the e-book version, though. JOHN -- loved your Ed Lee comment, and so would he! Best to all, D

Comments: Gail- I was researching a story idea a few years ago and read up on a myriad of fetishes, from the fairly normal to the way over the top yucko kind. "DRITIPHILIST" would no doubt deal with phlegm or snot. And given the fact it was written by Ed Lee...I can only imagine the depravity that unveils itself.
532 Fri February 25 2011 - 13:59:28
Comments: I would like some help here - I have just read a story entilted the DRITIPHILIST ? I can not find anything in the dictionary of what this means? does anyone know ?
Sorry Jack - I still do not understand - is the cow in the back of the woman ? or is it separte?
533 Fri February 25 2011 - 03:02:44
Comments: Hey Jack,
I love all your books, you are the one and only! It would be great if all of them will be published in german, one day.
best regards from germany,

Comments: GAIL -- COW is a longish story that Leisure wanted Lucky and I to do to bulk out their edition of THE WOMAN. It picks up the characters in that novel -- what's left of them -- about a year later. Jeez, BILL, you caught me out! What can I say? My math sucks. But then I don't do numbers for a living. Rest assured I'll fix it in any future editions, though, and thanks for catching that one. Best, D.

Comments: I just read my first Ketchum book, The Girl Next Door, and I almost put it down on about page three. The narrator says he was born in 1946, 17 months to the day after we dropped the bomb on hiroshima. That's impossible - we dropped the bomb on Aug 6th 1945, and 17 moths later would be in 1947. Am I missing something here?

Comments: What is the cow ? is it a bonus novella in the back of the novel the woman ? I can't find anything on it, can someone advise please - have also checked out philp roth, looks very intresting- will get a copy of portany complaint after I finsh my other 2 that I am reading by ed lee -

Comments: I saw that "Nectrotic Tissue" magazine has folded.As both a fledgling writer and an assistant editor of a small press venture, I find this tragic. They were good people. In a time when the genre/field/whatever needs all the uniting and allies it can get, more and more players are hanging their coats and waving goodbye. I'm not really ranting or anything, just prefacing a simple plea. Support! When a small press puts out a book or a magazine, if you can support them...almost every writer you can name started somewhere...and odds are pretty damn good it was a small press platform. Thanks for listening. :)

Comments: Hi guys...JOHN -- I'm a total dinosaur. I still have all my vinyl. NJHORROR -- is Roth's SABBATH'S THEATRE horror? Well, consider an arthritic puppeteer at age 64 who's having a complete nervous breakdown, haunted by the ghost of his mother and memories of the wife who simply disappeared one day, not to mention the recently-dead mistress who screwed his brains out on a daily basis and upon whose grave he only recently gave up masturbating, consider that, and tell me if it's horror. Even if it's also funny as hell. GAIL -- glad you're like this forum. Me too. STEVE Y -- don't know Barron's stuff, sorry. ADAM -- if you liked THE WOMAN you're going to like COW, I bet. Best, D

Comments: Dallas: *The Woman* was excellent. I can't wait to get the CD hardcover and read "Cow." I'm woefully under-read when it comes to Roth, I read/enjoyed/studied *American Pastoral* in undergrad, but that's about it.
As for the e-reader debate: Kindle all the way. It's the space and paper saving wave of the future, baby. The books may not smell authentic, but they don't yellow and fall apart at the spine either.
Josh: Thanks for tweeting the link to my review!

Comments: Hi, all.
Has anyone read anything by Laird Barron? Opinions? He has a book to be published by the same publisher that did Ketchum's limited The Woman. Might try some short stuff first, and figure out if The Light is the Darkness is for me. Anyone see the movie Buried? I am reading Gregory Funaro's The Impaler now, and I plan to read The Woman soon, but delicately since it's collectible!!!eeehh..Later

Comments: Portnoy's Complaint was hilarious!
My wife doesn't get it. I told her,"You have to have been male and a teenager to fully appreciate THAT book."
Is that Roth title horror?
545 Sun February 13 2011 - 20:52:33
Comments: Philip Roth, the "Portnoy's Complaint" guy? haha, loved that book. I feel the same way about books as I do music. I've been collecting cds since college and had around 5000+ last summer, before space and debt forced me to start selling some off. But it's as much about the packaging, the booklet and liner notes as it is the music to me...Books are the same, it's the feel and smell of the paper.Can't replace that! happy Valentine's Day everyone... :)

Comments: Hi guys...interesting dialogue about the pros and cons about these e-books. You've got to figure similar discussions are going on all over the world...BOB -- no time-frame as yet as to the CD edition of THE WOMAN, but I'll post it here and elsewhere as soon as I know. STEVE -- don't fry yourself in the tub, please. I need to keep my good readers in good health. Reading Philip Roth's SABBATH'S THEATRE. I think Roth's incapable of writing a bad book. Always in fine form. Best to all, D.

Comments: That's great the the Ebook is out! Will I read it? Nope! Not yet, anyway. I need the thing in my hand. A book. Ugh, I feel old already at only 29..but I love books and I just can't stand the idea of carrying around some 249.00 PDA to read text on. It's not even close to holding a book in your hands..plus I like to read in the bathtub. I would never take one of those big electronic book machines into the tub with me for fear of death or at the very least an electrified member! I'll buy The Woman, when it's a book :) And I can't wait !
