"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane

Let the Truth Shine Forth

Daggy is still trying to win a fight with his detractors over at Range’s blog He singled out Johaha for a taste of his special brand of stupidity.

I hope that Range finds it amusing.

Daggy is getting closer and closer to figuring out who Johaha really is. I know who Jo is. I happen to be one of Jo’s fans.

Jo happens to be a pro. He has a list of creds that Daggy will never equal. Jo’s published works have a quiet intensity and a tremendous sense of compassion. His insights into the nature and strength of the human spirit are unique and powerful. His use of imagery is painfully beautiful. Some of his sentences make me ache with a pure, sweet love for the precision of his language. To equal it, you would have to go all the way back in American Letters to the mainstream writers of the 1940s.

Harry Harrison agrees with me on that.

Many, many, many years ago, Jo was among the first four victims of Dagstine’s viciousness. One of the other victims left fiction, but has recently moved into poetry. Two others simply stopped writing altogether.

America has long savored a love for when the victim turns the tables upon the oppressor; whatever form that oppression might take. That is what happens when Jo posts comments to various places. The victim is looking for a bit of payback.

However, the best vengeance is to be successful and Jo is that. So he has already had that much. I am in favor of giving him more than that when the time for revelations arrive.

Dagstine will never be more than a two-bit lame con-artist who attempts to present himself as more than he is and more than he will ever be.

Eventually, I will have a full fledged interview with Jo posted here when his novel comes out. Then we will see who has the last laugh — it won’t be Dagstine.

    Many, many, many years? How long has this nitwit been operating? I thought he only bubbled up through the top layer of swamp scum recently. If both you and Harry Harrison (Wow!) think so highly of Jo’s stuff, I’m anxious to read it myself. Although, it could be I already have and don’t know it. :{D The suspense is killing me!

    My estimate is that Dagstine has been operating since 2000 or 2001. He just came up on our radar via the Nicky Interview and that single issue of Literary Boner he did.

    When I say and am not a writer, that is what I mean. I am NOT a writer.

    Any fool can be a writer. When you write a letter, you’re a writer; when you write an email, you’re a writer. When you write a story for amateur fun, you are a writer.

    There is a BIG difference between being a writer–which we all are to some degree everyday—and being an AUTHOR.

    Writer. Author.
    Two very different things.

    Damn straight.

    You are an author.

    Dagstine is a masturbationist.

    I’ve always seen writer and author as too different things. One you work on to become the other, which is the dream.

    So well done. Go Jo!

    Writers live in a faeryland where they beat their delicate butterfly wings against the cruel vagaries of critics.

    Authors cash their royalty checks & go shopping.

    CR’s been riding my coattails far too long, that’s why.

    Let’s just say Johaha was (er, I mean is) a science fiction author.

    Dagstine, every time you try to post ugliness to one of my threads, I will bump it up.

    Now just kindly say the fellow’s name so we know whether you’re lying through your teeth again.

    I can’t imagine anyone riding the coattails of a fellow who has as little talent as you do.

    Dagstine likes to dream.
    He makes up things as retarded as his stories.

    No one is following you. Like I said, no one is jealous of a writer.

    Maybe someone could be jealous of an author, but not a mere writer.

    I just like seeing you squirm, Lorenzo. I find it most hysterical.

    Riding coattails assumes that someone is trying to capture a bit of someone else’s fame to make themselves more popular.

    You assume too much, buttwipe. No one is riding your coattails, let alone me. You have no fame to steal.

    Dagstine, you have hurt so many people that you no longer remember all the names of your victims. However, I can now say I know six of them.

    Well, at least he gave us an initial to work with.

    I’m going to do a search on all science fiction writers with the initials CR.

    Project much, Lorenzo?

    I’d say he does it all the time, but it’s clear his light bulb burned out a long time ago.

    So all I am hearing from Lorenzo is broken filiments rattling around between his ears?

    That’s about the extent of it. How else do you explain all the illogical drivel that comes out of his mouth?

    I have noticed that there is no consistency in what he says. He makes the homosexual / homophobe slurs at me and then when Raingods takes him to task he retreats to I’ve got two set of godparents for my kid and both sets are gay.
