Jamie Brindle

Biography

I'm just your average run-of-the-mill guy, I suppose. I get my kicks by targeting a stranger randomly from a phone book, stalking them, and assimilating everything they do and think into my personality. Such projects are time-consuming, of course, and I have often spent entire years on single "clients" (as I call them). I am never violent towards my clients; indeed, I often buy them flowers and pleasant things to eat. If things go well, then I eventually end up being able to think what my current client is thinking before they do. This brings me to the crux of the exercise, which is the habit I have of following my client wherever they go and shouting out their thoughts in the third person at the exact moment they think them. Of course, this is very disconcerting to my clients, and they frequently become delusional and need psychiatric help of some kind.
Physically I am nothing special, either: I stand a little over seven feet tall, a fiery mane of red hair obscuring the more delicate of my facial features, my single remaining arm twitching constantly at my side as a result of nerve damage during early childhood. I am broad shouldered and immensely fat in the stomach, weighing somewhere in the region of twenty-two stone. I am followed everywhere I go by my faithful mouse, Lenin, who is my best friend in the whole of existence, my one, my all, my everything, silver-furred and wet-nosed, we share many intimacies that this world would perhaps frown on.
I spend my days working in the local fish farm, where I teach baby fishlings how to swim. My nights are occupied with my military studies and my overiding passion for disco.

  • Unawares on Aug. 11, 2012

    Nice idea for a story. Prose was fairly crisp and clear, and there was some good, understated irony. Would have given it four stars, but I think the story could be improved by a careful comb for little typos (we're all guilty of that though, right? I know I am! ;-) ). Worth reading.

    Made me chuckle. I especially liked the retorts to children who attempt to bully the author. In fact, perhaps a book of these could be forthcoming? Worth my time, and I'm not even bald (yet).

    Intelligently written story with some interesting ideas, though some people may find there is not enough action to suit their tastes. (If you like your science fiction chock to the brim with hi power photon mega-missiles and transgalactic snarf monsters from the planet Znarg, this might not quite be your cup of tea!). The central idea is strong enough to hook the reader in, and there's some nice musings on class and race and power. Not a masterpiece, but not a waste of my time, either!
