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 living with a “stupidphone” Razr for several years, holding on to my calling plan and the old technology because upgrading would increase my expenses (at least for some time it would). But getting new batteries for the old … Continue reading
After a lot of work in writing, correcting galleys, working at promoting the book, my author copies have finally arrived! The Creature took the time to examine the book, checking out how the landscape format works. He decided he was … Continue reading
My current hostess is a remarkable gardener. Her back yard flourishes with greenery (a good deal of which we dine on at dinner). She also keeps a number of chickens. The Creature had been complaining about the talkative creatures he’d … Continue reading

During the holidays I house-sat and took care of a pair of cats. They were very sociable cats. Boo was a purring machine and she turns it on as soon as she is touched. She even allowed the Creature to … Continue reading
