I simply knew too fucking much. So, in a word, this anthology is personal to me. A few years ago, I started becoming acquainted with the British Scene, with the edgy prose worlds of Paul D.
These stories were noir, as in bad choice, questionable character, and a cascade of consequences. I glimpsed the feral worlds that faces British slang for gangster like Paul Ferris and The Kray Brothers would understand. I would hear and see the solidarity of working-class man and woman forced to eat the sandwich called Life.
Grit, to me, is also that intrinsic quality, that speck of insanity to fight the fight when any normal person would quit. Nobody should have to fight cancer alone. Right or wrong, rich or poor, nobody asks for cancer.
The fight affects us all. Every one of us will experience cancer at some point in our lives. Cancer is down-in-the-trenches ugly. Cancer is war, literally Self against Self.
We have forgotten that our diction distances common humanity. We are all connected. In his essay , Aidan had discussed the title, Paladins , and its meaning. The word is a corruption of the Latin palatinus , or knight of the palace. Warriors are forged in the crucible of adversity, both physical and mental.
They fight and they help others. Writers use words as weapons against the shadows even when they choose to write about darkness. We sixteen writers assembled here on these pages, with support from the ranks on both sides of the ocean and around the world, muster morale and call for support for Henri and others like her who fights cancer. Well said. Ultimately, I did all I could to do get well and then handed it over to a higher power. I am very grateful to be in remission. Hang in there!
