Mind Meld with Mickey
Over at SF Signal, the latest Mind Meld has me and several of my betters (including Tobias Buckell, Nancy Kress, Lucius Shepard, Mary Robinette Kowal and Derek Johnson) riffing on cinematic surprises. While I am reflexively wary of media consumerist exercises like this, it was surprising fun and I am impressed with the collective results (I especially concur with Lucius about Monsters). I managed a double Dumbledore archetype and a prose poem about the flesh of Mickey Rourke, which I consider a critical material of 21st century consciousness. Check it out.
