Taunting the Internets
Two quick reminders first:
1. BSC Review will be giving away a set of Goblin Quest miniatures on June 29. Enter now! You know you want ’em.
2. I’m giving away a copy of Stepsister over at SF Novelists.
Dear Anton Strout – I seem to have sold a werejaguar story. With zombies in it (sort of). You wish you were as cool as me.
Dear John Scalzi – Cherry Coke Zero is far superior to regular old Coke Zero.
Dear Catherine Shaffer – Didn’t I ever tell you I was polycatherous?
Dear Alethea Kontis – <Dr. Drakken>You think your feet are all that, but they’re not!</Dr. Drakken>
Dear Cory Doctorow – Information does not want to be free. Information wants to be bound, gagged, and spanked hard.
Dear Robert – Hey look, I found you some legs!
Dear Wil Wheaton – I know your secret. I know why you keep missing Penguicon, and why Amazon still won’t ship me my copy of Just a Geek after three freaking months. “Wil Wheaton” is just a Pixar-produced computer animation!
Dear Elizabeth Bear – Actually, never mind. I’ve seen those climbing muscles. You could kill me with your toes. No taunt for you!
Dear Paul Abbamondi – Don’t think I’ve forgotten. Your time is coming, goblin-hater!
Dear Random Person who’s feeling left out because you didn’t get a taunt – Maybe that omission is the taunt! Ha! Bow before my meta-taunting skills!

Shhh. Jim, don’t taunt the internets. They taunt back. And they have a bigger stick.
And, BTW, thanks. With your taunt of Doctorow I’m now going to look at the internet as a grand S&M and Bondage game. I need mental floss again and my superpak of it is all out.

I’m not afraid of you and your Internets!
Heh … I actually got up in the middle of dinner last night to make a note of the Doctorow taunt 🙂
