“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

Baby Trinidad Scorpion.  I'm gonna call her Pope Frank.  This chilli is life-threatening. While they struggle to invent stronger ones for the poisonous martial sprays, this one is still the piggest poker by far, at around 1.2-1.4 million Scovilles, with no GM, no nothin. Top of the charts.  But see where it's poking its little stinger.  That is a killer strike at a new level.  A delicious nuclear madness, with the best vanillinoids out there!
