    I cannot stress enough how utterly unique this was... it was a novella that came as digital media, a collaboration with the goth metal band Moonspell. its a whole work of art, music and book, coincide beautifully, but the book by itself would be worth reading. It is as potent an expression of emotion as i have ever read. amazing. totally unconventional. i'm not sure if you can get just the book somehow, but as i suggested on another thread, it would be worth buying the album just for the book. wow. one line, i wrote down, because it struck such a chord in me:

    "The sound of the world existing, like a choir of silences."

    much love :)

    *shakes head sadly*

    that more people wouldn't check this out.

    too risky i suppose. not conventional enough.

    much love :)

    I know the writer but I've never read any bookof his. Still Moonspell's naíce... Portuguese literature has a special little thing.

    And if you like communist looks over the world read José Saramago.

    And if you like passionate poetry read Flor Bela Espanca.

    Peace on and on and on...
