Hearty congrats to Spencer Pate for winning an hon mensh in the VanderMeer New Weird Contest where the wonderfully weirdphilic winners are 'semi-anonymous' but their entries are boldly exposed.
And Spencer's entrée?
Read his Night of the Living Crickets with a glass of milk before bed.
Yea for Spencer!
Actually, I just recalled Kirsten Bishop's mention of an insect incident along the lines of Spencer's crickets, which also, remarkably, ties in with some "New Weird" action:
Maybe we could have a Night of the Living Crickets sequel:
"Crickets versus Ants: the Final Temperature"?
I'm all for that, if SP and KB are. Too bad they don't live close enough to make a video of their fight to lick the spoon. And I can add something to that observation by Kristen. Cockroaches swagger out of microwaves as if they've just had a fine night in a speakeasy. Not, I must stress, that I've seen them do it at MY house!
