Hey Lafferty friends, I was just re-reading the long comment thread on my post about Fourth Mansions and I gotta say - I miss the chat and community over this great man's works! It's been a while. That thread honestly made an incredibly powerful and coherent symposium on Lafferty and his themes (and I know we had a few more just as ripe after that). 'It was all strong talk with the horns and hooves still on it' (The Devil Is Dead).
'Wha' happened?' Is the Fellowship (of the, what, about half dozen of us?) breaking up? Heh. I'm joking. I know we've all been super busy with all our responsibilities (me as much as anyone). We just simply, honestly don't have time for it right now. BUT...
Let's meet up here again this summer and get back to the Lafferty POW WOW! What say you, friends, earthlings, Laffertians?
