I was poking around in WordPress and wound up on the page that tells me about visitors and which posts are popular. It’s an odd combination of posts, to be honest: a cranky post about the difference between bequest (noun!) and bequeath (verb!) and a review of Black Wade, a graphic novel, which I had kind of forgotten about. Black Wade is by far the most popular post I’ve ever written, which is kind of ironic since it’s not a post I put a huge amount of effort or thought into.
Seeing the stats made me go see if I still had it on my bookshelf. Yes, there is was, sitting next to my Firefly graphic novels and also one of the early Mercedes Thompson graphic novels. But, wow, has it *not* aged well for me. In fact, re-reading it gave me a serious squick. It’s going in the discard pile, although I’m not sure if it is appropriate for donation to the library or what.
