Thanks for that remarkably thought-provoking review, Jetse.

Reminder of new review of Zencore! by Jetse de Vries:
http://tinyurl.com/2cqzmh

This is what I call a 'rite of review', a very personal experience (or struggle) between book and reader.

Other examples of a 'rite of review' (a type of review that Zencore! seems to evoke from its reviewers) are on this TLO page (by Yellowish Haze and by Calenture):
http://www.ligotti.net/showthread.php?t=1195

And my own 'On the Hoof' review (!) of Thomas Ligotti's Conspiracy Against The Human Race here:
http://www.ligotti.net/showthread.php?t=1159

Anyone else interested in doing a 'rite of review' with Zencore! ?
A few review copies available. It'll be posted to you after the UK postal strike is finished!

Anyone got any other examples of 'rites of review'??
A Ligotti-like literary propensity would seem to lend itself to this ritual exposure to texts and textures.

Another 'rite of review' between Reader and Zencore where I think the struggle is literally audible:

This is a formal review of ZENCORE! in a formal quarterly:
http://www.silveragebooks.pwp.blueyonde ... /TQF19.pdf
It is also a good example of a 'rite of review' as I earlier defined as a 'struggle' or 'confessional' review that Zencore seems to encourage.
It includes these words;
"I am forced to admit I have lost it (probably in the pub), and only got about a third of the way through reading it."

All this happened since 'Scriptus Innominatus' was prescribed or found to be an ingredient in at least some reading worldwide. Reading gives you pleasure but some pleasures have to be worked for. Not all reading in Zencore is light reading.

Have to say, there are times when I love to get my hands around a nice, hard read. Nothing else satisfies quite the same . . .

Yea, this we wait for, this renews us, this
Incarnates us, pale people of your dreams,
Who are but what you make us, wood or stone,
Or cold chryselephantine hung with gems
from 'Artemis to Actaeon' by Edith Wharton in 1902

1) There's a review of <<zencore♂>> in this magazine:
http://www.hippocampuspress.com/journal ... ngs-2.html
Not sure what it says yet!
The other reviews are linked from here:
http://weirdmonger.livejournal.com/2007/07/26/


(2) On 9th December 2007, I shall be setting up a 'spoiler' webpage to
assign the book's 17 stories to their authors, a page you may want to
do without if you've not yet read <<zencore♂>> (recommended for a
Stoker and with seven YBF&H Honourable Mentions).
So you only have until then to take advantage of this free competition
offering a reasonable prize:
http://weirdmonger.blogspot.com/2007/07 ... ition.html
You may also post your entry publicly - as Interaction's own Jetse has done here:
http://eclipticplane.blogspot.com/2007/ ... -game.html
and Calenture has here:
http://vaultofevil.proboards75.com/inde ... 935&page=1
I think it is true to say that it is virtually impossible for anyone to get all 17 correct and, so far, this has proved very true.


(3) CONE ZERO (ZENCORE mixed up) submission guidelines continue to be shown here:
http://weirdmonger.blog-city.com/cone_z ... elines.htm

Zencore!reviewed again:

There's a pungent review by 84 year old Ben P Indick in 'Dead Reckonings'magazine:
"...the hapless photographer who supplied the featureless photo of a man seen only in shadow against a cloudy sky."

Jetse has now made his guesses:
http://eclipticplane.blogspot.com/2007/ ... -game.html

Interesting take on 'Terminus':

I expect you're itching to enter this valuable free competition; it will soon be too late to do so.

I have a feeling the winner is not of this planet... how the heck does he manage to read so much? :shock:

My friends often think I'm *on* another planet, because I don't get out quite as often as I used to... :wink:

Thanks, Des, for a great competition, and I'm very chuffed to win.

My new tactic, is now to make myself ineligible for the "Cone Zero" guessing game by sending in a story (if I can find the time to finish it in time next year... :P ), hoping this forces the evil Zencore! mastermind into submission (by accepting aforesaid story), although I fear he's not so easily thwarted... :(

Scott Edelman is already very amused. I will deal with him at the Denver WorldCon, hopefully.

Thanks, Jetse.
Your review praised BLUE RASPBERRIES and....

Nemo's Ark is restarting with the first of the 'speeches' by a Zencore! writer!

Kek-W
Linked from HERE
Excerpt: "I can say, hand on heart, that Nemo 7: Zencore has been one of the most pleasurable writing experiences I've been involved in ... And the idea that Nemo in its various incarnations might be part of some as-yet unnamed post-New Worlds formation of contemporary weird speculative fiction is kinda thrilling."
