OK, so this one has no PJ's Art?
this edition is exclusivly writing with no images, is it?

why should I buy a book now if in 6months I can have a PLUS edition? I'm not getting it, sorry if I appear dumb to you

I assume the October illustrated edition will be a special/deluxe (=more expensive) version – just like regular paperback The Hollow of the Hand was £16.99, while the hardback 'Reader's Edition' was £45. So I guess it boils down to how much you're willing to shell out for Polly's drawings.

Weirdly, the appearance was not promoted on her social media at all – she should get a tech savvy Gen Z intern to handle the digital stuff!

Anyway, here's the episode, replayable for the next month:

I've recorded Polly's segment as an mp3, available to download for the next 7 days:

I have a copy of Orlam in my hand and I am very happy. It is satisfyingly square and chunky.
Sadly it has to go back to the library in 3 weeks, but all is good for now! (I asked them to buy one so I could borrow it :grin: )

I read it last night. I really enjoyed it (I think that's the right word) and it needs to be reread lots of times. Some of the poems are quite hard work - you look across from the Dorzet to the English and then want to look across again for the idiot's guide. I suspect those will turn out to be the most satisfying.

I was very happy that Polly can create atmospheres and feeling in the poems like she does in her songs. It takes a bit more effort but is worth it. And she can still shock and surprise - you never know what will be on the next page.

In the spirit of Things I Found in Gore Woods: Things I learned from Orlam:
What a femboy is
Anus grease is a thing
Vokket is not as rude as it sounds but vuck is
The correct equipment to use when castrating lambs (she just had to go there again ...)

There seems to be a bit of a theme there but that probably says more about me than Polly!

!!

My copy arrived in the mail today, I was not expecting it so soon. It is over 300 pages long, and has an extensive glossary. I doubt that I will read it in a single evening.

I also received a set of PJ Harvey playing cards.

Random line from a random page:
"And rose from the zedgemocks to The Ultimate Elm,
As tallest talisman, magnetic moon, pansophic sphere."
Odd coincidence - These lines are from "Sonny to the Dark Wordle" and I've been playing Wordle daily for a while now. :)
