I’m currently reading Tad Williams’s book, The Dirty Streets of Heaven – a great fantastical telling of the operations of Heaven and Hell.
I have heard about the versatility of Williams in his ability to write across genres, and had to have a gander for myself. So far, I’m enjoying it. Here’s a wee bit of exposition.
‘When you’re only got seconds to live you don’t fuck around with etiquette. If you’re fighting a guy you hit him in the nuts as hard as you can. If you’re fighting a she-demon who is wrapped around you like a constrictor and trying to bite off your face, and you can’t reach anything else, you punch her in the tit.’
– Williams, T. (2012). The dirty streets of heaven. New York. NY: Daw.
