It’s getting on for mid-October and this is the first post of the month. You might be forgiven for thinking Our Man had been shut down (you know how the Republican body politic naturally shuts everything down when Democrats conceive?) but actually, he’s still soldiering on.
In fact, Our Man has been on his very own Asia pivot, though when he pivots it’s more likely to involve a bottle-opener than a nuclear submarine.
What, you may legitimately ask, is he on about?
He’s only gone and got himself another blog. But don’t worry, long-suffering fellow travellers, it’s not much of anything at the moment. In time it will be a place to run long-form articles and links to his books and essays and stuff far too high brow and, er, long for here (long brow?–ed.). Sensible folk (and foreign country people residents of Japan) may want to trundle off and wait patiently for their number to be called.
Everybody else can stay here, where they can expect more of the same old same old from Our Man.
But you shouldn’t have to wait long for something to read over at the other place. Our Man should be done with his first e-essay in ages that will go on sale in a week or two, with all proceeds to benefit charity, and then he’s going to release a chapter a day of his debut novel for free while he gets on with editing the first draft of his second novel.
You got all that? Don’t worry if not, it’s bound to all be over by Christmas.
