Have you read Zen Flesh Zen Bones by Paul Reps? As this sort of thing goes it is relatively light and sometimes quite funny.Richard Shrobe: "Elegant Failure, a Guide to Zen Koans"
I've been reading through this (twice) (slowly) on and off for two or three months in the hope that I might get some understanding of this collection of abstruse koans. The author does manage to bring some sense to the tenth century idioms, but....
Thank you. I'll definitely read that before long. I've just realised it's already on my book shelves, unread, having survived numerous culls.Have you read Zen Flesh Zen Bones by Paul Reps? As this sort of thing goes it is relatively light and sometimes quite funny.
Agree 100% - and I struggled with Mister B Gone and The Scarlett Gospels. I think his earlier work is far superiorCabal, Imagica, Damnation Game and Hellraiser novella. I've got Coldheart Canyon and the Great and Secret Show but could never get into those later books.
Same here. A Thousand Words for Stranger was a very nice surprise after picking it up on a whim. But one the other hand, I got tired of the Expanse story after the third book or so.I'm stunned that you didn't get into this. I thought it was a great read. For a time I thought Julie Czerneda was the next great SF author. But I haven't seen much from her lately.
Thanks Nixie, this sounds like a fun read, just ordered itAll it needs to do is entertain and shut out the world, Edgar Cantero's Meddling Kids, fluffy, far fetched, with I feel a nod to the famous five ( Blyton Hill, even the dog's called Tim) and Scooby doo ( pretend monsters, traps) it kept me highly amused, I missed my stop on bus I was so engrossed.
