Okay, since you brought it up. I have thought many times reading here that your blog reminds me of "Peanuts." (Of course, I mean this as a supreme complement.) Specifically, your use of the same or similar images to accompany your text often reminds me of Charles Schulz's use of a single image to accompany a four panel narrative. You know: where the same panel is repeated with different dialogue, like the "what do you see in the clouds" sequence. I think it allows your mind to get quiet and absorb what's being said. Thanks!

Thanks, NIL -- I am a HUGE FAN of PEANUTS -- the understated and slightly cynical humor, the skepticism of the collective and so on and so on -- so I take your comment as nothing but complimentary!!!!

Fiction: The Metropolis Case

'It’s to the credit of Matthew Gallaway’s enchanting, often funny first novel that it doesn’t require a corresponding degree of obsession from readers, but may leave them similarly transported: the book is so well written — there’s hardly a lazy sentence here — and filled with such memorable lead and supporting players that it quickly absorbs you into its worlds.
