“Some people need help leaving closets, she posits”: Digital Cuttlefish’s Verse About “Coming Out Atheist”!

Some godless are “out” very loudly and proudly,
Some stay in the closet for decades or more–
The former will find Greta’s writing exciting;
The latter, of course, are the folks that it’s for…

Okay, I am ridiculously excited about this.

When The Digital Cuttlefish — poet laureate of the atheist blogosphere — got a review copy of Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why, he offered to review it in verse… and asked me if there were any verse forms I was particularly fond of. Being a smart-aleck, I said that I was fond of sestinas and villanelles — but that a limerick or a song parody would also make me entirely happy.

Well, he didn’t write a sestina. He apparently is allergic to sestinas. (Understandably so– it’s kind of a ridiculous verse form, and I was only semi-serious in even suggestin git.) So instead, he’s written a review of Coming Out Atheist — in the form of a sepielle.

I am excited about this out of all proportion. Check it out!

    Also, totally unrelated… I’ve commented often with the intent of subscribing to email updates for your blog, but they never come… 🙁

    More related: I just started listening to the audiobook. I kinda wonder how Audible/Amazon Whispersync works, and why it isn’t set up for your books. It should be, except I wish it was set up such that while you have the ebook open, you can listen to audiobook and it will highlight the passages being read and then flip the page once the current page is done on the audiobook. How cool would that be?
