I ended up not having enough reading material for the return trip on Sunday, so I started listening to the audiobook of Warren Ellis’ Crooked Little Vein. It’s actually a good listen, with some laugh out loud funny parts. But this is Warren Ellis. There are some really fucked up, cringeworthy bits too. Basically, take Warren’s blog, take out all the bits that aren’t disturbing and wrap what’s left into a noir detective story. Voilà, you have created Crooked Little Vein. Okay, that may come across as a little unfair, it is after all well written and entertaining. But it also contains ostrich date-rape and godzilla bukkake fetishism. And I’m only a quarter of the way through.
