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!

The convention fell on Easter weekend this year, which led to me deciding to skip the Sunday activities. There didn’t seem much on the schedule for that day that I was willing to make the trek down to Anaheim for, … 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
Last Friday, I spent most of the day at the Loews Hollywood Hotel helping man the GLAWS (Greater Los Angeles Writers Society) booth at the Writers Digets West Conference. Actually, the ballroom the exhibit hall was in was not in … Continue reading

Because this has been a very tough year for me all around, I fully expected that I would not be attending Mythcon, in spite of the fact that it was relatively near, in Berkeley. I just couldn’t afford it, not … Continue reading
