Empty Your Heart of Its Immortal Cyclonopedia

Jeff VanderMeer • September 7th, 2010 @ 7:18 pm • Culture

For some time now I’ve been meaning to mention Paul Charles Smith’s excellent new blog Empty Your Heart of Its Mortal Dream, which is devoted to all manner of weird and decadent literature. But now it’s become imperative, because he’s gone and tackled Reza Negarestani’s Cyclonopedia, a recent favorite of mine.

He’s also been mucking about with Cormac McCarthy…

frolicking with J.G. Ballard

kvelling over Elizabeth Hand

…and indepth analysis of a lot of Angela Carter books,

among all manner of other cavortings. Check it out–and bookmark the blog if you like weird literature.

    You know you’re going to make Paul blush, don’t you? :D I think he’s going to cover Michael Moorcock sometime in the near future as well.

  2. Paul Smith says:

    Consider me suitably blushed.

    Paul’s blog is great. One of the best.

    Occasionally you come throughout a post that just seems to make sense. Thanks a lot
