The Ted Chiang Of Toontown
This made me laugh, Danny O'Brien on SF in SF
The stories they read were great: during his tale, Mamatas shifted slowly in my mind into the very slightly new category of that guy who wrote the Cthulhu mythos story in the style of Raymond Carver. And after [David] Levine's reading, I have him mentally categorised now as "The Ted Chiang of Toontown".
Danny is one of the founders of the legendary NTK, and also accidentally invented the entire Lifehack industry, but bizarrely I remember him as the guy who wrote that cool Sunday Times column.
