Hi,

I'm just curious: if you could put two writers in room, who would you put, and why?

I'd try throwing William Wordsworth and Walt Whitman (WW and WW) together and let them fight it out to see who can be more transcendently egotistical. Wink

Down boy.


Hawthorn and Dickens. I just find their prose to be painful masturbation. Maybe if they joined forces to stroke each other wed get some results, or perhaps something so convoluted that it would destroy the English language. Either way, it would be interesting.

Wallace Stevens and Samuel Beckett. At a table.

A gun is placed in the center of the table.




Sam clears his throat.

Not Gaiman's best, but I liked it a lot... definitely worth recreating.

Though Gaiman and Steven Brust might be cool, too.
