The current featured article is "BREAKING THE PATTERN: ALAN GARNER'S THE OWL SERVICE AND THE MABINOGION"
This paper was presented at Mythcon 24 in 1993. It was an opportunity for me to write about a lovely little book I had always enjoyed. Years later, it had the advantage of being a rare piece of scholarship on the works of Alan Garner, which led to it being selected for inclusion in THE CHILDREN'S LITERATURE REVIEW, vol. 130.
I hope you will enjoy it!

I’ve been a member of CAPS (the Comic Art Professional Society) for about three years now, and have missed the last two annual banquets, much to my regret. So last month, when some unanticipated funds came to me just before … Continue reading
I drove down early in order to get into a good parking spot. As it happened, I did get a good spot near the building, right beside a set of stairs. The unfortunate part was that it was nowhere near … Continue reading
We moved our regular meeting from the second Thursday to the first because of the desire not to alienate supportive spouses of members (next Thursday being that romantic occasion, Valentine’s Day). We had a good turn out in spite of … Continue reading
Yeah, I know. I’m posting this a month after the event, and the day before the January CAPS meeting. Sometimes, one just falls behind on these little recitations of activities. The party itself happened on our usual meeting date of … Continue reading
Last night at the CAPS September meeting for 2012, we had a panel of pros who had known Joe Kubert in various ways. The legendary artist made a huge impact on others both personally and professionally – and it was … Continue reading
Scott Shaw is a professional cartoonist. You have to get that from the start, because what you see on the surface can be deceptive (rather like tabasco sauce in a bland bottle). I got to know Scott through Jim MacQuarrie, … Continue reading
