Iris

Why don't you send a copy to Philip Pullman in case he wants ideas for another sequel? Oh, if only Lyra could end up as a 'Pleasurer' it would be one way of keeping her annoying voice quiet.

badger

Ahahaha! Perfect idea!

Then the silly marketers should have pulled a different excerpt to publish in the World Fantasy booklet, b/c the quoted bit is so darn awkward it pains me to think of it even now. (Maybe it's just the lisp.)

badger

Yeah, not the best excerpt. But the kid is going to become the supervillain of the series - and he has a lisp because he was named "Bastard Son of a Whore" and so at age 7 he pulled out all his baby teeth so he could be officially a man and get a new name. And then a massive infection set in and he almost died and his other teeth all fell out. Thus the lisp. he's deeply obsessed with manhood and the power he can get from it and from The Phallus Which Shall Not Be Mocked.

I liked the scene where it's the ritual day of walking backwards around the temple and it's the one day a year that women can insult men! And the little girl and her sister and mom are all screaming filthy curses at the scary lisping bullying brat!

My uncle's music school in San Francisco, Sunset Academy of Music. He's a really great guitar teacher for adults or kids, a good listener with a sense of humor and intuitive understanding of teaching.
