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
Got word from my publisher late last week that the final cover design for my book (formerly known as Paper Movies) has now been approved — and I can start showing it off to folks. The actual publication date hasn’t been … 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
