from Xerography Debt #27 Review by Maynard Welstand
So you want to be a middle-aged, midlist writer? This issue covers how to achieve this remarkable goal in three easy steps.

Amusing highlights: how to not handle criticism of your work; bad writing in movies; the uselessness of Twitter and Facebook; and a complaint about blogging.

Methinks he even took a swipe at my own self-important, economics blog. Oh well, I suppose as long as they’re talking about you, that is not such a bad thing.

Or to quote a poorly remembered Chinese proverb: If the poet doesn’t anger the Emperor, he isn’t doing his job.

Most reviews of THE INNER SWINE begin with the sentence: “What can I possibly say about TIS that hasn’t already been said?”

Well... this review is no different.

TIS has been around longer than God. This is the “Writing the Inner Swine Way: Helper Monkeys and Bullshit” and I had the same two reactions that I always have when reading an issue of TIS. My first reaction when starting an article in TIS is, “Haven’t I read this piece in a slightly varied form in a previous issue of The Swine?” And my second reaction is to laugh my ass off throughout the first half of the zine. Then, when I reach the fiction section of the zine (usually somewhere around page 30) I think, “Jesus, hopefully I’ll be able to write this well one day... the bastard!” (Posted on 8/10/12)
