Poppy Z. Pleads Insanity

Author Poppy Z. Brite (docbrite), who is beginning a new novel, admits in this entry that the stress of creativity and the demands of a few snippy fans have started to take its toll:

I don't even know what's going on in my brain any more, if anything. Chris tells me that early this morning, as he was coming back to bed after getting up to pee, I said in a sepulchral voice, "NAGIN." (Ray Nagin is the mayor of New Orleans. He is a black man, at least nominally.) When he asked me if I was OK, I said in the same voice, "Shooting black people."
