Gratuitous Exsult

My Faithful Reader

OK, one of them.  Made the following comment up-post from here:

In trying to describe The January Dancer (especially the cultural mixing), I once described it as "a combination of Dune, Firefly and The Maltese Falcon, as told by an Irish bard in an Indian restaurant."
-- Stevo Darkly

Should he consent, I'll put his name to it; (he did; I did) but I am ROFLOL. 

It is apt.  I wrote the early version in HS and College, inspired in part by Dune.  And I did have the Maltese Falcon in mind as a background.  Firefly had not been invented yet.

I proudly consent!
I will own up to that comment, with great pride. Glad you liked it.

(Or did you need my real name for some reason?)

Re: I second that motion!
Beat me to the allusion.

I didn't see the Dune association but I kept seeing Donovan as either Sam Spade [portrayed by Bogie, because he's blond in the novel] or Ned Beaumont from The Glass Key.

Rather than Arrakis, I pictured an Instrumentality of Man/Jack Vance hybrid.
