Owl Time with Lord Dunsany
Have you heard of Lord Dunsany? Yeah, me neither. But I came across him when I was studying up on H.P. Lovecraft. He was a big Lovecraft influence. "And a great white owl came by, going up and down in the dark." All right? So IN THE LAND OF TIME, a collection of stories by Lord Dunsany, is a book with an owl in it, so shut up. So all I do is tell you when I read a book with an owl in it, so what? And every book has an owl in it, so it takes up a lot of my time, and my work and relationships inevitably suffer, so leave me alone. What do you do? Save sick babies? Well, okay, that's pretty good.
