Review: Carter Ward, Space Rat

January 7, 2019

Carter Ward, Space Rat,
by Gregory K. HG. Bryant
Review 1/6/19

For many years Gregory K. H. Bryant contributed essays to my zine Musea. Later I found out what an accomplished artist and photographer he was. Now add author to that list with the release of his big trade paperback, “Carter Ward, Space Rat”

The 500 pages here introduce us to the adventures of Carter Ward; but it’s far from his last adventure as his story continues online.

Carter Ward is a crusty loner that survives in the outback of space between Mars and the Asteroid Belt, where the laws there are seldom followed!

His ship, 08-111 is a one of a kind marvel with all the necessary, rigged up, extras like his visual companion and a favorite character of mine, Dimara, who helps him out of scrapes more than once!

Besides Dimara, others intrude on his life more than he wants! There’s lots of characters here from the evil Mokem Bet and his Scroungers, to little Emily that has a crush on Carter.

All this adds up to lots of close calls – like the time he died – and even some tender moments when he lets down his guard – slightly!

Lots of space opera adventures here, that are not only fine writing, but fun reading!
I recommend this.

Antiquity or Novelty (poem)

Antiquity or novelty,
which do you like best?
Do you look to see what rises
or follow what has set

this stick is a horse!
Imagine
this poem is a stick!

Sayings of Editor Art

January 3, 2019

Boomers and Gen-X have turned music over to 3 CEOs who ruined it. Millennials, it’s up to you to take it back!

Musicians, 21/2 minute songs are taut, dramatic, and well structure; 4+ long and I’m tired of it on first listen!

I’d give the odds of that happening at …. Fat Chance!

CDs are too long. No one wants to hear an hour of anyone!

Lingerie to make Christmas bright? GM gives out pink slips!

Novel in 6 words: The Moon looks for her still.

Novel first line: “Can only adults solve mysteries?” asked pale skinned, long black haired Audrey.

I’ve had a 50 year head start (on the public.)

Nature is moving faster than we are! (Climate change.)

The man makes his case – the woman judges.

The museum of architecture was like a Russian doll.

Who keeps the blanket warm?

My first favorite flavor is chocolate. My 2nd favorite is double chocolate!

What ever happened to one hit wonders?

Am I spoiled? I’d say 99%. It’d be 100% but not everyone bows!

Settle for nothing, or activate for change.

Anemic automaton audio

The first of anything is not conservative.
The second of anything is not a trail blazer
Numbers count / position.

Kidnapped people have happier faces than that!

The Big 3 make more money through their lawyers than their musicians!

If this music doesn’t tear at your hear, you haven’t got one.

Science has become our most reliable seer of the future.

I’m writing an art book –
I’m drawing a play.

Paper only understands two things: rocks and scissors!

Money can buy a smile, but not a heart.

The best playwrights write not for Broadway, but for cable tv

Flowers made of iron? Flexibility is strength too!

I’ve only got one head, but two headaches!

No matter how cold, there is a fat guy in shorts.

There are two quick ways to divide the Beatles career:
The rock n roll first half, the art songs 2nd half.
The John singles first half; the Paul singles 2nd half.

Don’t smoke! There I have saved your life!

According to K-Dramas, half of South Korea are orphans, and the other half are looking for them.

Sometimes I’m beside myself and have to move over.

More quiet than a tumbleweed at rest.

Hard hitting journalism is now replaced by 4 word journalism, “What do you think?”
(or worse, “What do you feel?”)

CEOs that don’t support universal health care, are forcing their company to pay massive health care bills. How does that make business sense?

Fact: 99% of car emissions come from cars waiting to turn left on busy streets.

You are a pawn in their game, but a queen in your own.

The economy is mostly what is happening to rich people’s money.

Economic grow is mostly trickle down economics.

Modern art: hybrid of grotesque and trendy.

Art is more than pencil photography

The problem with realism is that all the works look alike.

His stories were so dark, he couldn’t see a thing!

You shouldn’t use your crutch for a crutch.
