I’ve been banging away on a presentation I have to give for work on Friday and have been occasionally checking in on the PyraMOO (online chat for the Pyramid online magazine from Steve Jackson Games) as I wait for various processes to complete. At one point, somebody wistfully remarked that it would be neat if Ken Hite and R. Sean Borgstrom could produce a work together. I dissented, as something about their styles strikes me as incompatible. I eventually came out with this comparison to try to explain why:
“Rebecca writes about the faeries living in soap bubbles. Ken tells you how they’ve been mutated by the years of lead poisoning in the water.”
Each is capable of invoking wonder and terror, but they go about it differently. Difference is good and they both rock.
