    Summary

    "And then there's a customized copy of PONY PALS, a gift to you on your 14th birthday from the slippery Mr. Strider. Each page contains lovingly hand-written commentary on the deeds of this intrepid young horse. Later, about halfway through the book, rather than see the gag through to the bitter end, Strider began pasting over entire pages of original text with his own completely rewritten version of the story, while keeping all the chapter titles. His revision is a tough, emotionally draining read. But it's cathartic, in all the worst ways possible.
    He tends to get carried away with his projects."

    Note: this work is an altered book, and it plays on the physical relationship between the original pages and the edited text. As such, it's presented as a series of images. Reading the images is the only way to get the full experience, but I'm aware that some people can't/don't want to read it that way. So if that's the case, you can skip to chapter 13, which is a text-only version of the story, including rough descriptions of the most important illustrations.

    Summary

    Bilbo is a harried 1st year British literature Ph.D. (early 20th century fiction) who happens to have an interest in spatial narrative structures, a lack of time-management skills, and a tiny apartment with a lot of books and very little furniture. He’s stressed, always, and doesn't quite know where he belongs. He tells himself that really, this is, in fact, what he wants to be doing. But sometimes, as much as he loves books, he gets an urge to do something with his hands.

    Thorin is a disgruntled M.Arch. 1 in his last year who can’t be arsed to shave and frightens his students, and, frankly, his profs, but his work is top-notch so no one can really say much. They can, however, bully him into running a hands-on design workshop on Saturday mornings, which is complete crap, because he’s used to drinking his Friday nights into oblivion so showing up at Milstein at 7:45 the next morning and trying to teach in a room of wall-to-wall windows as the sun rises is not at the top of his list. Besides, no one ever shows up.

    Except one morning, someone does.

    Summary

    There is a Grain of Sand in Lambeth that Satan cannot find
    Nor can his Watch Fiends find it: tis translucent & has many Angles
    But he who finds it will find Oothoons palace, for within
    Opening into Beulah every angle is a lovely heaven
    (William Blake, Jerusalem 37:15-18)

    An angel overhears the prayer of a hunter, but doesn't reveal himself. That's it.

    Summary

    There is a Moment in each Day that Satan cannot find
    Nor can his Watch Fiends find it, but the Industrious find
    This Moment & it multiply, & when it once is found
    It renovates every Moment of the Day if rightly placed
    In this Moment Ololon descended to Los & Enitharmon
    Unseen beyond the Mundane Shell Southward in Miltons track
    (William Blake, Milton, 35:43-48)

    A hunter stands in a parking lot, and prays to an angel. The angel doesn't come. That's it.

    Summary

    Бильбо – студент-первокурсник, учится на факультете Английской литературы, питает слабость к пространственным рассуждениям и бесполезному времяпровождению, живет в крохотной квартире, где почти нет мебели, зато полно книг. Он всегда в подавленном настроении и понятия не имеет, чего хочет в этой жизни.
    Торин – выпускник Архитектурного факультета, заросший, небритый и вечно недовольный всем на свете парень. Он блестяще учится и наводит страх на студентов и некоторых профессоров, которые как-то все же умудрились спихнуть на него субботние занятия в местной студии арт-дизайна. Но это бесполезно потому, что каждую пятницу он надирается в хлам, и все следующее утро до полудня проводит на стульях мастерской, уткнувшись носом в стенку. Все равно ведь никого не бывает.
    Но однажды кто-то все-таки приходит…

    Summary

    Um... Mister Culter? I don't understand what I'm supposed to put in this box here? It says summary? But, like, there's nothing to sum up, because there are no sums or nothing? So do I put the characters in? But I already did? Is it about you and Mister Pallister? And how you switched classes again, and the thing with the tests? Then why didn't you just SAY that, oh my god... OK, I wrote something in the box can I go home now?
