Apollo, the god of light, of reason, of proportion, harmony, number—Apollo blinds those who press too close in worship. Don’t look straight at the sun. Go into a dark bar for a bit and have a beer with Dionysius, every now and then.

I talk about the gods, I am an atheist. But I am an artist too, and therefore a liar. Distrust everything I say. I am telling the truth.

Ursula K. Le Guin, Introduction to The Left Hand of Darkness

Lazer Zeppelin or Spotlight?

I’m trying to get my website going after a long period of dithering and inaction. Check it out if you want to see me compare fiction to planetarium laser shows and nonfiction to a spotlight. 

“Predictions are uttered by prophets (free of charge); by clairvoyants (who usually charge a fee, and are therefore more honored in their day than prophets); and by futurologists (salaried). Prediction is the business of prophets, clairvoyants, and futurologists. It is not the business of novelists. A novelist’s business is lying.” Ursula K. Le Guin, Introduction to The Left Hand of Darkness
