enjoy the ambiente hotelPosted: 31 Mar 2013
I am becoming increasingly convinced that M. John Harrison’s Ambiente Hotel is the best blog around right now. It is full of succinct, poignant, lyrical writings of both fiction and reflection, the weird and the mundane. He eschews the current curated fashion of Tumblr/Twitter (not a bad fashion, but sometimes tiring) for something with a much different feel and writing style than exists on most blogs. You can’t skim the Ambiente Hotel; it takes time to read and digest. Though not necessarily strung together there is a distinct cumulative effect when given daily careful reading over weeks/months.
And the tools you develop operate only at the scale for which you develop them–though they have just enough sensitivity to alert you, as you push towards each outside edge, to the possiblility of the need for another, yet more subtle, toolset. -m. john harrison
