Garscadden says:
See - if people would just advertise there books in such a manner, the world would be a peaceful place where Unicorns frolicked with Gummi bears as fairies did all the work for us.

Garscadden says:
My work is all academic, it's not very interesting, and not published. And my creative hobbies are non-word related, and terribly amateur - hence I don't spam them about :)

Yes I get that impression of you Garscadden. Although you might be greater than you think you are. Oracle. You appear to have a very high opinion of yourself. I imagine that when confronted with books by new writers you'd happily crush their dreams and ambitions with your comments. Honest you may think you are, but it comes across as arrogance and suggest an over inflated ego. You act like no academic I have ever known, you seem extremely unprofessional in your manner. I feel that your opinion is the only one that truly matters. Good for you, where would the Amazon forums be without a voice such as yours? May I read some of your work Oracle? And your work Anita?

I am enjoying myself immensely before anyone asks. Ah, an academic. I thought you were all published writers? Have I jumped upon the wrong ship? : ))

Garscadden says:
I'm not an academic unfortunately, just a student. And a part time one, real work keeps me from full time academia :(

Anita says:
You know, Peter, most of the people here do know at least one of my books. None of them have read it. And if you went back to page 8 of this very thread, you might as well guess why.

Happy reading :)

Garscadden says:
I would love to read your work, unfortunately I am not up to the task. I suspect that Peter/Paul/Mary/Gavin lacks the particular intellectual skills too.

Nice insult. But I've studied and read a lot of Tacitus so I'm not offended. Oh. What are you studying? I would still like to read Oracle and Anita's books! Send me a link please?

Yes. I am indeed severely brain damaged and unable to structure a sentence. So I fear that I will not be able to read any words larger than five letters. : ))

Anita says:
If you are really as brain damaged as Garscadden is, off goes my hat, and I take back everything bad I might have said about you

Oracle says:
Actually, my opinion is the only one that matters - to me. I prefer it that way. Clearly your opinion is also the only one that matters to you or you wouldn't be so upset that I didn't like the Willard poem. Jeez, I'd almost think you were the author or something the way you reacted to one person's negative opinion.

I think that there's a fair chance you may have read something I've written/edited in one form or another. I'd rather not point you to it though as I prefer to use a pseudonym on discussion forums for all the usual and sensible reasons.

Yes Oracle, well unlike you, I like to listen to the opinions of others, mine is not the only opinion that matters to me. Many times I've been proved wrong, and that's no bad thing, not something you would admit to though. I fear your books may have a very closed minded approach to whatever subject matter you are interested in. You missed a fall stop from the end of your sentence, as you raised the issue of punctuation. I'm politely biting my tongue. Doubt any of you will do the same. No Oracle I will not rise to the bait, I'm better than that.

Garscadden says:
I'm studying various things, but a subject I am reading up on at the moment includes art of WWI (and just preceding), hence my renewed dislike of Sassoon (who I am just refusing to reread), and my utter glee at getting to go through Owen again. Though mainly I am concerned with the Futurists - if you ever get to see "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space" please do - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unique_Forms_of_Continuity_in_Space

Not an English student, so I wouldn't turn up in your classes.

Yes always an utter glee when reading about the death of young men in the Great War. Think you may be tad tatseless with such a remark. No, not really that upset to be honest. Ah, you fear that I might be critical of your work? So why write something, put it online and then not tell people about it? I'm having my own doubts, but I'm not so quick to accuse people of lying my dear. What type of things do you write????

Jim Webster says:
I'm not too sure that the gummi bears frolicking with unicorns is really 'family entertainment'

Garscadden says:
A bit of inter-imaginary-species 'frolicking' never 'urt no-one. Willard could maybe write odes to the couple?

I have worked as a university lecturer, but many years ago in Edinburgh. History and English.

Anita says:
Keep you hat on, then, I was talking about mine.

For brain-damage check - how do you think, why do I *really* respect Oracle, Garscadden, Jim and some others, but not you?

Jim Webster says:
Basically Garscadden is reading this literature so I don't have to and I am sincerely grateful for her efforts.

I'm not into guessing games Anita, I want answers. You don't know me, so no reason why you should respect me? I beg to differ, but you're right treat as you find. : ))

Garscadden says:
Ahh, but whether the poem is real or not - we know you lie. (the whole, I found it a couple of weeks ago / a couple of years ago).

My dear papa always learnt me that respect had to be earnt, see.

Anita says:
Simple: all those people have plenty of interesting things to contribute, instead of pushing one book in, erm, some dubious ways. I have immensely enjoyed some chats with them (as opposed to having fun at somebody's expense). That's why.

In fact, yes, I don't know you, and perhaps you're the one to be hurt much more easily than me. If so, my apologies, then (I mean it this time)

Indeed. But fortunately I am not the writer of such a bland work! Garscadden you'll go far in this world, although not that far as you probably think the planet's still flat and that you could be eaten by sea monsters. The first step will be away from these forums I would hope. They're very stifling and stagnant, I've enjoyed shaking it up a bit. : ))
