[books|repost] Kalimpura reading March 8th, 2013

Health permitting, I’ll be reading from KalimpuraPowell’s | BN ] on Friday, March 8th, at the Powell’s Cedar Hills location. This will be my one and only formal public event for the book due to my continued battle with cancer.

As is usual, I’ll have an open dinner from 5 pm to 6:30 pm, at McMenamins Cedar Hills, at the north end of the same retail complex Powell’s is in. If you’re planning to come to the dinner, please do let me know in comments or via email so I can include you in the headcount.

Due to chemotherapy, I’ve cancelled all my other convention and workshop appearances through this summer (at least), so if you want to see me on the hoof and Hawaiian clad, this is your only chance. Due to the reduced chemotherapy prescription I’m embarking on, this will be the first of a small series of public events and appearances I’ll be doing this spring, and into the summer if my health holds up. Hope to see you there.

Kalimpura — Paul di Filippo reviews my Green trilogy at barnesandnoblereview.com, with a focus on the latest book, Kalimpura. In creating Green and her universe, Lake has not only provided a vivid protagonist and a grittily glamorous world, conducive to high heroics, but also updated the kind of Red Sonja (Robert E. Howard’s heroine) and Jirel of Joiry (C. L. Moore’s swordwoman) archetype for postmodern, egalitarian sensibilities. He’s never obtrusive in this program, but always effective. This trilogy stands as a landmark in heroic fantasy that fuses pulp brio with sharp philosophical underpinnings. I think he liked it.

Australian Experts Report First Known Quintuple Negative — A language funny from Lowering the Bar.

No breasts for our guests — Censored wallpaper? Really?

Male as the Neutral Default — Ah, gender. Sigh.

Alcohol said to have big role in cancer — Not mine, since alcohol never played a big role in my life.

Cuomo Bucks Tide With Bill to Ease Limits on Abortion — As we all know, conservatives don’t want the government to come between them and their doctor, so I’m certain Republicans across America will do the intellectually consistent thing in supporting this bill.

Can the Republicans Be Saved From Obsolescence? — A fascinating article that points to some blindingly obvious conclusions about pervasive conservative hypocrisy and the Republicans’ much beloved tactics of social repression.

Preemptive Pessimism Isn’t A Plan Still, today, after all the debunking, the repeated certification by the State of Hawaii, two successful presidential campaigns and all the background checking that implies, more intense scrutiny than any other single president in American history – after all of that, a significant fraction of conservatives in this country still refuse to openly admit that Barack Obama is a fellow citizen, that his skinny black ass is just as American as they are. They’ll readily believe every silly poorly reasoned, logically inconsistent, idiotic, ridiculous, asinine, soundly debunked conspiracy theory that comes along from every coked-out, crazy-haired, wild-eyed fruitcake with an Internet connection, but they won’t believe Barack Obama is an American citizen, a Christian, and Capitalist. And there’s nothing you can do to convince them otherwise. Nothing. Welcome to the conservative mind. Which Jim Wright analyzes in detail, contrasting their own words and stated policy positions with objective reality. (Via Steve Buchheit.)

[links] Link salad knows there will be peace when it is done

The Acts of Whimsy cancer fundraiser is still live. It has made goal, but additional support is always welcome, especially given my new complications. Please check it out if you have not done so yet.

The Lakeside Kickstarter has expanded its stretch goals to include documenting the science around my genomic testing by traveling to the testing lab and interviewing the scientists there. They’v also posted a new trailer for the movie, which is very striking. So give a little to support SCIENCE!

A review of Dark Faith: Invocations which includes a special focus on my story, “The Cancer Catechism” — I’m not often moved by reviews of my own work, but this one… Wow.

GIVEAWAY: Win a Complete Set of Jay Lake’s “GREEN” Trilogy! — My friends at SF Signal celebrate the release of KalimpuraPowell’s | BN ].

Carry on My Wayward Son (Trombone Quartet) — My teen years suddenly seem so different.

The material that’s like an octopusWhen pressure is applied all around them most materials shrink. But materials exhibiting a rare property known as negative linear compressibility (NLC) are different. (Via Daily Idioms, Annotated.)

Tapeworm eggs found in fossilized poop — Man, I want a coprolith to go with my trilobites!

Carrots for Doctors — A New York Times piece on medical incentives that touches on but then sidesteps the real issue in healthcare costs: profit-taking throughout our healthcare finance system. Countries with single-payer systems take less profit and pay lower costs, a double win.

Climate change may be hitting migratory species harder than we thoughtCurrent methods don’t consider the whole picture when calculating risk. Actually, it’s just Al Gore out hunting them to help keep the hoax going. Ask any Republican, they’ll tell you those liberal “facts” and “data” about climate change can’t possibly be true.

Idaho gun-nut lawmakers freak out over man with gun in state Capitol (irony alert) — But guns make us safer! Just ask the 80 people killed every day by them!

1 dead in Phoenix office shooting; shooter at large — See how much safer those people are because of widespread private gun ownership. The NRA and the GOP, still protecting the Second Amendment rights of angry, impulsive people everywhere to kill at a whim, as should always be in the case in a just, safe and moral society.

Gabby Giffords made me cry. America? And you? — Roger Ebert on gun control.

Moral Perversity In David Mamet — Andrew Sullivan on David Mamet’s recent bizarre and counterfactual piece on gun violence. I read the Mamet piece when it came out, and couldn’t even begin to frame a response to its ghastly amoral stance.

African-American Travel and Jim Crow Segregation — I’ve heard of the Green Book before. A sobering reminder of white privilege and racism.

Can Republicans “Disengage” from Obama?Because many Republicans and conservatives assumed the worst about what would follow Obama’s re-election (this was the “Obama unleashed” idea), they are going to be more inclined to try “winning a series of confrontations with the president” rather than less. The other problem is that many Republicans are likely to continue reacting to Obama’s re-election as they did to Clinton’s, which was a combination of disbelief that he had won and an increased obsession with “getting” him by way of investigations and scandals.

QotD?: Do you cry no more?

[cancer] Field notes from Cancerland, post-operative edition

Next Steps

Yes, I am home and in reasonably good order. Today I’ll be scheduling post-operative followups with both my surgical oncologist and my medical oncologist. The unexpected discovery of new tumors in my thoracic diaphragm and my lesser omentum have significantly complicated the planned course of post-operative treatment. Plus at some point they have take these thirty-two staples out of my belly. I’ll comment more on the post-operative issues when I’ve had more time to think, and when additional data becomes available.

Genetic Sequencing of My Tumor Tissue

The samples went off to the testing lab. Thank you again to everyone who contributed to the Acts of Whimsy fundraiser to make this possible. Thanks to the unexpected findings in surgery, things are probably going to get even more expensive than anticipated, so the overage will go to very good use. Meanwhile, we expect the lab report back around February 10th or so. Now working on getting the interpretation lined up.

Why the Surgery Went the Way It Did

As I said yesterday, My surgical oncologist’s initial comment to me on that was, “What we’re supposed to do when we open you up and find unexpected tumors is just close you back up. I knew that wasn’t the right answer for you.” Several folks wondered about that. Here’s what I understand: I think it’s because the assumption is that if there’s additional undetected metastasis which wasn’t accounted for in the surgical plan, disturbing those met tumors without sufficient knowledge of their extent could cause more harm than good. Anyone reading here who’s a clinician is invited to correct or expand upon that in comments.

My Own State of Mind

I got nothing. Last Tuesday I went under anesthesia thinking I had three liver tumors and probably a fourth. I came out of anesthesia to be told I had additional tumors in two other sites within my body. All were excised or ablated. I am baffled, unhappy, terrified, hopeful, loved and beloved, afraid, confused and a whole lot of other things, all at once. I have barely begun to sort out my feelings, and we are a ways from having a decent go-forward plan. Everyone around me is working very hard to help me, and each other, cope with this, as we seek to understand.

Why This is So Confusing

Bluntly, I’ve lived too long. Most people in my cancer cohort are either cured or dead after five years. At four years and ten months of living with Stage IV metastatic colon cancer, I am neither. My disease progression has almost outlived the available clinical data and best practices. This means it’s not clear either what to expect next or what to do about it. This also means we’re pinning a lot of hope on the genomic sequencing of my tumor tissues. Maybe there are answers yet. In the mean time, I continue to be a walking, talking science experiment. Which at least has its own cool factor, because SCIENCE!

Good Things That Have Happened

While I’ve been so incapacitated this past week, my author copies of KalimpuraPowells | BN ] showed up. The book is officially released this coming Thursday. I also learned that my short story “The Cancer Catechism” has made the preliminary ballot for the Stoker Awards. I think that’s a first for me. And the Cthulhu short I wrote right before surgery has been accepted by the requesting market with only minor editorial changes requested. So, go me!

Meanwhile, I am off work all week laying low and recuperating at home. Be well, and I shall essay to do the same.

Feds: ‘Monsignor Meth’ dealt drug, bought sex shop — Really, how can atheists possibly have ethics or morals without religious guidance?

Mali rebels fleeing Timbuktu burn library full of ancient manuscriptsTown’s mayor says Islamist insurgents torched two buildings containing priceless books as French-led troops approached. I do not understand why people think religious values make for good government and society. Religious values just burned one of the most precious ancient libraries in the world. Religious values destroyed the Buddhas of Bamiyan. There’s a lot of reasons I’m an atheist, and these are some of them.

Why I Don’t Own A GunUltimately I choose to live without guns because, a) I don’t hunt, b) I’m not a police officer, c) I choose to live gently in a violent world. I choose not to help swell the ranks of the armed in our society. I want to contribute to a more peaceable and gentle society. Does that mean I’m unsafe? No, I don’t think so. But if I am unsafe, well, then I choose to be unsafe. (Via Slacktivist Fred Clark.)

Growing Up With Roe: How a Trip to the Eye Doctor Created a Lifelong Advocate for Reproductive Rights — (Via Slacktivist Fred Clark.)

Texas, where science and history have become ideological battlegroundsPBS will show the story of the Texas State School Board’s assault on facts. This conservative assault on those liberal “facts” and “data” has been going on pretty much all my life, with little response from the reality-based community.

Jindal, courage is not enough — Good luck shedding that “stupid party” label, GOP. Until you stop trying to generate more angry white men as your basic electoral strategy, you’ve painted yourself into that corner.

[cancer] Surgery today

There’s a place I go right before surgery, in a mental and emotional sense. I become very hard and internal. Not mean or snappish or unloving. Just… focused. I’ve been there since yesterday. Drawing into my body, as it were, and concentrating on what is to come.

Nonetheless, [info]the_child and I managed to have a couple of productive conversations last night about my illness, my prognosis and my mortality. She also spent some time with Lisa Costello and with Mother of the Child. Processing, we’re all processing constantly.

Meanwhile, it is today, and I’m off to the hospital shortly. 6 am check-in time for morning surgery. I probably won’t even go into prep before 7 am, then likely be in the operating room five to seven hours. Recovery sometime this afternoon, then ICU for at least 24 hours.

A few details about the surgery for new or recent readers:

  • This is my fifth major surgery since 2008, all in pursuit of cancer. That includes a colon resection, a lung resection, and two liver resections prior to this, my third liver resection.
  • As a side note, I’ve also had three day surgeries and two very minor outpatient surgeries in connection with this process. All of those were about placing chemo access ports in my chest and removing them again.
  • Today’s surgery has four primary goals:

    First is to resect or radiofrequency ablate all three of my known, existing tumors. This will return me to No Evidence of Disease (NED) status. NED is not a cure, or even a remission, it just means I have no detectable tumors.

    Second is to inspect the site of my fourth, suspected tumor which emerged during last fall’s chemo course. The determination of what that site actually represents may cause a change in my spring chemo course.

    Third is to inspect the rest of my liver for any areas of damage or emergent metastatic disease that may not have been in evidence on the scans.

    Fourth is to secure sufficient tissue samples for whole genome sequencing of my tumor.

It will be a few days before I am meaningfully lucid. I’ll be in the hospital likely through Saturday at least, then recovering at home for a while. Lisa Costello has the keys to both the LiveJournal and WordPress instances of my blog, and she will be posting updates as her time and mental energy permit. I shouldn’t expect any resumption of blogging on my part until the weekend at the earliest, and possibly not until next week.

People often ask what they can do to help me. Good thoughts and prayers (depending on your orientation) are always welcome. Here’s several other possibilities:

Regular wit and erudition shall return.

[cancer] Field notes from cancerland, surgical edition

This and that…

The Acts of Whimsy Fundraiser

Thanks to your incredible generosity, we’ve added some more unlock stretch goals to the Acts of Whimsy Fundraiser:

  • $42,000 — NY Times Best-selling author Steven Gould will run for SFWA president!
  • $44,000 — Video, “How to Write Like My Dad” by Bronwyn Lake (a/k/a [info]the_child)
  • $46,000 — Klingon language expert Lawrence Schoen will present Five Pick-Up Lines Used in Federations Bars by Klingons
  • $50,000 — A delicious surprise!

And yes, I do know what the delicious surprise is. It will be pretty awesome, I can assure you. And it was [info]the_child‘s idea, so she’s in a sense responsible for two of these stretch goals.

Personal Stress

Some folks contacted me privately after yesterday’s post entitled “Hope and Despair” [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]. A lot more expressed both concern and support publicly in comments. Rest assured, I am not going off the rails. I was talking about my experience, not expressing a desperate cry for help. I am receiving both good therapy, and excellent support from family and friends. The big issues in my life are soul-crushing, but I still live day to day in (mostly) good cheer, love and personal fulfillment.

Surgery Next Week

Next Tuesday, I am having my liver resected for the third time. This will be my fifth major cancer surgery. (There have also been five minor surgeries, repeatedly inserting and extracting my chest port.) That means, among other things, that the blogs will be dark for a while, with the possible exception of occasional status updates by Lisa Costello.

Also, I am seeing my surgical oncologist today. We’ll be exploring some of the issues around the apparent emergence of Ashcroft (tumor #4), and how that affects the surgical plan, as well as treatment expectations going forward. I should be commenting on this here on the blogs tomorrow.

The release of Kalimpura, the third Green novel

In one of those bizarre coincidences that wouldn’t work if you wrote it into a story, Kalimpura releases two weeks from yesterday, Tuesday, January 29th, a week after my surgery while I’m flat on my back at home in bed recovering, and thus unable to do even local promotion at Powell’s and elsewhere. Part of the irony is that the paperback release of Mainspring occurred the day I went into the Emergency Room with my initial cancer presentation back in 2008. Apparently my careers as a professional writer and as a professional cancer patient are intertwined.

One way to support me is of course to donate to the Acts of Whimsy Fundraiser. Another way, which is better for my other career, is to buy a copy of Kalimpura. Though it reasonably stands alone as a novel, if you haven’t enjoyed Green or Endurance, feel free to take a read of them. Audible.com also has a terrific set of audiobooks for the series.

If you want to purchase Kalimpura today, here are some links: [ Powells | BN ]

Mayan apocalypse: panic spreads as December 21 nears — Because people are stupid. This is dumber than believing in the lottery or supply side economics. At the least lottery entertains, and supply side economics is a feel-good fairy tale for low-wattage ideologues. I’m not sure what anyone gets out of faux-Mayan apocalypticism.

When is a religion not a religion?O’Reilly and Staver are both trying to justify Christian privilege. They want the free exercise clause of the First Amendment to apply to Christianity, and exclusively to Christianity (and maybe Jews, too, if they behave). And they want the no establishment clause of the First Amendment to apply to every religion except for Christianity.

‘Like lesser Americans’: Atheists face discrimination, persecution, report saysIn at least seven U.S. states, constitutional provisions are in place that bar atheists from public office and one state, Arkansas, has a law that bars atheists from testifying as witnesses at trials, the report said. It’s much worse elsewhere in the world. But every time I see one of those polls that atheists are the least trusted group, or hear some Christianist conservative talking about how morality cannot exist without religion, I remember that Hitler and Pol Pot were Christians. And yes, I just Godwinned myself. (Via [info]shsilver.)

Scalia Defends Anti-Gay Quotes — In which his arrant conservative bigotry is laid plain. Again. And this man sits on the Supreme Court. Evaluating Justice Scalia on the plain face of his own words on this subject, he doesn’t have the moral character, intellect, compassion or discernment to qualify as a dog catcher. So much for impartial justice. Or any justice at all, really.

Poll: Colbert The Most Popular Choice To Replace Outgoing Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) — Do people not get the joke? Colbert in character (and he always seems to be in character) is Poe’s Law on the hoof.

How to Raise a Little Liberal or ConservativeIn short, authoritarian parents are more prone to produce conservatives, while those who gave their kids more latitude are more likely to produce liberals. This strikes me as painfully obvious, but I suppose the news is that there’s evidence for the assertion.

Democrats and Republicans belong to different groups — (I think I got this from Fragano Ledgister, but I lost the source.)

How the Mainstream Press Bungled the Single Biggest Story of the 2012 Campaign[C]ampaign coverage in 2012 was a particularly calamitous failure, almost entirely missing the single biggest story of the race: Namely, the radical right-wing, off-the-rails lurch of the Republican Party, both in terms of its agenda and its relationship to the truth. Romney and the GOP lied knowingly, constantly, and unapologetically. They bragged about it. And they nearly succeeded with that strategy, displaying unambiguously the miserable public character of both Money Boo Boo his own self and the conservative movement as a whole. But the American Right is so worked up about Kenyan Muslim socialism that they neither noticed nor cared about the utter failure of their own leadership.
