Not sure why, but I initially assumed the Kissinger’s Dead posts to be a joke, like that couldn’t really happen.

@magitism No idea. Don’t understand it myself. Just following (however clumsily) the advice of my publisher’s marketing person.

I always sort of thought that if I managed to meet William Gibson in person, I’d ask him how he feels about having an insanely popular manga and anime honor his name and the literary genre he pioneered by incorporating them into an attack name, but since he’s on the fediverse I can just ask.

Hey @GreatDismal,

how do you feel about having an insanely popular manga and anime honor your name and the literary genre you pioneered by incorporating them into an attack name?

Back here courtesy of the Mona app, or rather of the friend who wisely recommended it to me.

@shepgo Never used an app for Twitter, but Mona has the look and feel of Twitter.

Haven’t been here for a while, but hope to be here more frequently. A good friend has offered to help me with some aspects of the mechanics of the place that puzzled me earlier.

Trying to remember how Mastodon works. Glad it’s here, though.
