Introduction by Draggie:
What Draggie Wrote:
A mixture of poetry and collection in all
kinds of moods, written at various times under the influence of various
substances, and first posted on the FidoNet (NZ) Scribble echo. These totally
marvellous pieces appear here by kind permission of the author.
What Alys Thinks:
Draggie is power pack of intelligent
energy, ascorbic comment and wise presuppositions. The tactless, merry
eyed dragon assumes a veneer of beer driven, indolent intolerance which
hides his very real talent for seeing, nurturing, and harnessing the talents
of others, and obscures his own very real genius perhaps from himself as
from others. He's a musician, a performer, and an aficionado of what he
chooses to appreciate. Without his appreciating these, my own personal
obsessions, neither The Nexus Collection, nor Scribble on the Net would
ever have seen the light of day.
The remarkable poetic rush of 1997 inspired
many wonderful achievements in others, but it also produced poetry that
many a lifelong servant of the Muse would have wanted to equal. One hesitates
to wish 'More Power to your Elbow' Dragon - but it is time you wrote some
more with, or without the 'substances'.
