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!
