Write something clever about yourself revolts me. The higher a writer's personality grows, the more it stunts the offspring. Besides, Crandolin was shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award, and has no such scruples. C loves being looked at and into. So do open C up, and you can also find out something about yourself. Do you, for instance, prefer to be commanded, or to crack the !s?

And just for joy, Crandolin recommends: Happiness=Soviet ice cream
