Strawberry Finch – Amusing tweet.

    The Raising the Dead story is incredible. The friendships, the suffering, the will and determination, really interesting and incredible. I hope to have friends like these in my life. Thanks for another great link dump. Have a great weekend everyone.

    I also recommended that Martine story. I think the story could be enjoyed by a lot of folks but agree with Tracy O’Brien that, if you’d respond to the “Grail” element, you’ve *got* to read it.

    (BTW, thanks for all the link dumps and the “seen online”s – lots of great, eclectic stuff.)

    The best version I ever saw of Frsnkenstein was the made for TV movie “Frankenstein the True Story” made by the same people who made Kholeshack the Night Stalker.
