    But I really just popped in to belated high-five Ben W for this:

    Right back at ya, although I'm worried it's a witicism. My belated and almost certainly plagiarized sole entry to the actual topic of this thread.

    That sucks, Paul. Never really encountered antisemitism much in NZ before. It was alive and well in Australia, though, and most unpleasant.

    FWIW i always envisage pacifics triple star as representing the 3 points of the polynesian triangle and it being our duty to guard it against colonials but alas...

    I think it's meant to actually be the 3 main islands. North, South, Waiheke.

    That's because Maurice Gee's YA work is awesome. And the "mystical" stuff (e.g. Halfmen of O, Under the Mountain) is the best of it.

    It's the nostalgia, the mysticism, the non-mimeticism that I love the most. I like to suspend my disbelief. It gives it a rest for a bit.

    If only my art could resemble my truth. Then I could program automagically, rather than spending years laboring so that others can feel the automagic, and come back with the automagic question "but how come it doesn't....".

    I woke up one morning and found that I was dead, which was something of a shock

    It happens to me a lot...common name unfortunately.

    I just want to say: You did a good thing, Jolisa.

    Ihimaera knows this. Don't beat yourself up.
