Well, holy shit. Folks who read this little journal of mine will know that I happily devoured Poppy Z. Brite's new novel *Liquor*, and wrote a review for amazon.com. Imagine my surprise when I read a favorable mention of that little review. In Poppy Brite's livejournal. Well, holy shit. No need to imagine, I suppose; my reaction to this event is pretty well encapsulated in the title for this entry.
