“Now, fix on the little fellow in my eye,…”

“’Tis well we know you were loth to leave us, winding your hobbledehorn, right royal post, but, aruah sure, pulse of our slumber, dreambookpage, by the grace of Votre Dame, when the natural morning of your nocturne blankmerges into the national morning of golden sunup…”

“— All halt! Sponsor programme and close down. That’s enough, genral, of finicking about Finnegan and fiddling with his faddles.”

    “He does not believe in our psychous of the Real Absence…”
    I have been trying to get my head round this short bit of text that caught my eye for a long while this evening. It is tempting me to believe in Real Absence more than I do in Real Presence, having been responsible (within Nemonymous Two in 2002) for publishing the world’s first blank story (four and half pages). It had a title but no story text. And it has convinced me to offer making the rest of this review absent or blank or gone missing. I assume that nobody will reach this far in my real-time review and if nobody does reach this far, then that is how it shall remain: gone missing. If at least one of you does however reach this far, please notify me by a public comment to this comment and then I promise to locate any resumption of this review (unless, of course, I have become, by then, Real Absence, too).
    “….where the bus stops there shop I: here which ye see, yea reste. On me, your sleeping giant.”

  2. I have changed my mind as to the above nature of the literary Real Absence I am applying here and I am adjusting it to some extent by revealing the link to the finale of my fractal and fractured real-time review.
    That link is shown below – but it is only useable to those who apply to me for the password or captcha which will open that link. Anyone can request it by writing to me at dflewis48@hotmail.com
    This password-captcha will never be changed and can be shared with others, if you so wish, but only on a one to one basis.
    Alternatively, look at page 258, 16th line down, 5th word along…

    THIS REVIEW HAS NOW BEEN CONCLUDED HERE (No longer passworded)
    My vital summary.

  3. Anyone who simply confirms that they have read and enjoyed the ‘Finnegans Wake’ real-time review from beginning to end will, upon request to me, receive a free signed copy of one of ‘Weirdtongue’, ‘Agra Aska’ or ‘Real-Time Reviews Vol. 1′, until further notice or current supplies of these books end.
