Re: April's Anticipated Ascent of Aspiringly Artful Words
Man, reading William Hope Hodgson right after reading Walter Tevis was like smacking my face against a brick-wall of prose. Tevis writes in the most readable style I've ever experienced. His prose is concise, clear, concrete, threadbare, and natural; Hodgson is pretty much the opposite of that. I like both (but I definitely like the Tevis book more), and it was interesting to read two completely different styles back to back.
