What I'm Reading

The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood. This is one of those classic books that I've meant to read for decades, but only recently got around to it. I didn't really know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story is chillingly unnerving, the writing poetic and efficient.

The novel's cautionary political and feminist message is no less relevant today than when it was written. But I like that Atwood conveys her message through the strength of the story and her relatable protagonist, as opposed to dogmatic exposition and characters that serve soley as mouthpieces.

New Comic Strip

Guess what? I created a new webcomic, The Remonstrance. However, before promoting it to the world at large, I would like to create a buffer of several more strips, as well as finish coding the Python scripts that make the site tick. Hopefully this will happen within a couple weeks.

Who would enjoy this comic, you might ask? Well, do you like kitty cats?
How about cats addicted to psychotropic drugs? Then this one's for you!
