CRAIG CONLEY (Prof. Oddfellow) is recognized by Encarta as “America’s most creative and diligent scholar of letters, words and punctuation.” He has been called a “language fanatic” by Page Six gossip columnist Cindy Adams, a “cult hero” by Publisher’s Weekly, a “monk for the modern age” by George Parker, and “a true Renaissance man of the modern era, diving headfirst into comprehensive, open-minded study of realms obscured or merely obscure” by Clint Marsh. An eccentric scholar, Conley’s ideas are often decades ahead of their time. He invented the concept of the “virtual pet” in 1980, fifteen years before the debut of the popular “Tamagotchi” in Japan. His virtual pet, actually a rare flower, still thrives and has reached an incomprehensible size. Conley’s website is OneLetterWords.com.

Miscellanies of Mr. Jonathan (permalink)

Jonathan Caws-Elwitt

unearths some literary gems.

From Crime in Kensington, by Christopher St. John Sprigg:

[It's all about the monocle!]

***
He responded to it almost automatically, with a slight emphasis of his stutter and sufficient monocle-play to produce the required impression of vacuity.

***
The contrast to the chromium-plated and unpolished-wood style of decoration of the rest of the house was patent, and suggested a sort of "lost plateau" of Victorianism.

***
The others had an expression suitable for Church during the course of a long sermon, except for Charles, whose face seemed absolutely devoid of any expression except for a faint sparkle of animation from his monocle.

***
He shot a glance at him which Charles parried, or at any rate palliated, as best he could, with his monocle.

***
"I have a feeling if you follow up your intuitions you will make a priceless ass of yourself. Leave that to the professional."

***
"After all, we aren't very different from Harley Street, which charges you and me five guineas and Lord This or That a hundred guineas."

***
An enormous wink reduced the length of one side of his face by about half an inch.
***

[Bonus: In this book we meet a character named Miss Geranium and her companion, Miss Hectoring.]

Miscellanies of Mr. Jonathan (permalink)

Jonathan Caws-Elwitt

unearths some literary gems.

From The Clock That Wouldn't Stop, by Elizabeth Ferrars:

***
In spite of the fact that she was highly paid for giving advice, that which she offered was probably no worse than her correspondents would have received from any other well-meaning, warm-hearted person.

***
The pattern of his tie was so enterprising that if she had not heard him speak, she might have presumed that he was an American.

***
"Tell me," said Alex, "does Miss Takahashi always say everything three times?"

***
"Nobbling you on the staircase to tell you things seems to be her only form of social relaxation."

***
Whether or not [the detective]...listened at those times if other people chose to speak to him, was difficult to know. He generally turned away from the speaker, giving him an occasional sideways glance, after which he would cock an eyebrow as if to register slight surprise at the speaker's existence. If he wanted a person to speak, he pointed a pencil at him.

***
"She's quite good at looking her suspicions."
"Looks can mean all sorts of things," said Daniel. "They're even more ambiguous than words, which are bad enough."
***

From Der Bärenspiegel, 1937.
[Inexplicable images from generations ago invite us to restore the lost sense of immediacy.  We follow the founder of the Theater of Spontaneity, Jacob Moreno, who proposed stringing together "now and then flashes" to unfetter illusion and let imagination run free.  The images we have collected for this series came at a tremendous price, which we explained previously.]

Miscellanies of Mr. Jonathan (permalink)

Jonathan Caws-Elwitt

unearths some literary gems.

From From Fringe to Flying Circus, by Roger Wilmut:

***
[A reviewer] describe[d] Miller as being more like Danny Kaye than Kaye himself.

***
"If the West End does not soon hear of John Bird, Patrick Gowers, Geoff Pattie and Peter Cook, the West End is an ass" [wrote Alistair Cooke].

***
[BBC executive Peter Titheridge] was a bit of an oddball, given to writing long memos in verse.
