Ladies and gentlemen, may I present: Malcolm Saves The World!

A novel, a satire.

Malcolm Saves The World!
synopses

Malcolm is not from here. He is from far, far away. He has just 30 days to save Earth from imminent global warming disaster, or as he calls it: ‘global roasting’.

He has superior alien tech, of course, but he has a handicap on this mission: he can’t kill anybody. He must do it systemically. So he takes the form of a human and . . .

To be released in 3 parts, the first in a couple weeks. An excerpt:

Malcolm Saves The World!
A Satire
By Moss Menlo

Carl Sagan, 'groovy marijuana enthusiast'

0.1 | Intro Beat

In the “Pale Blue Dot,” Carl Sagan asserts no one is coming to save us.

Carl was a genius, global science elucidator, groovy marijuana enthusiast and an overall beautiful man way ahead of his time — but he was wrong about that. 
   

Malcolm came.

returns

Includes this interesting tidbit:

Ecco’s purchase included five previously unpublished Bukowski books, which it began issuing in January with Sifting Through the Madness for the Word, the Line, the Way: New Poems. It plans to release one new book a year. In what editorial director Dan Halpern termed “a perfect Bukowski twist,” these books contain the poems that Bukowski deemed his best work, but which were never published. “Every time he turned in a book, he would mark the poems he liked best. They were not published in the books; he asked John Martin to publish them posthumously,” Halpern explained.

Halle Berry to star in . . . Babel-17?

. . . if Dr. Menlo had his way . . .

I was reminded of this book recently when Kirsten Anderson blogged this:

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
Plastic surgeon says that in 5 years surgery to give humans tails and wings will be a reality…not to mention horns, and other surgery to make one appear more animal like. I could really use a prehensile tail.

–which already happens in Babel-17. (Kirsten, of course, is kidding about the tail–she already sports quite a long and lustrous one; next time you see her ask her nice and she may show it to you.)

Samuel R. Delany

This book completely bowed me over.

For more on Samuel Delany, I hugely recommend Bellona Times . . . whose author (Ray Davis) may or may not have mentioned that his very blog’s title comes from Dhalgren (I think?) . . . Bellona Times on Delany here and here: Delany’s Dirt:

“I want to talk about Samuel R. Delany’s pornography.”

“Commentator Andrei Codrescu just re-read the autobiography of anarchist Emma Goldman. He sees parallels in the battles she waged at the beginning of the 20th century with social and political issues now. (2:45)”

I was reminded of this segment after seeing the above pic on Monkeyfist, which currently features a beautifully-themed randomized pic.
