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 had a great time in San Diego. Make no mistake about that. But toward the end of the convention, I acquired a bronchial congestion that has taken me some days to get over. Still coughing a bit, but it’s … Continue reading
So, Saturday, I once again ventured into the LA Times Festival of Books. On one of the warmest days we’ve had in Southern California in a while. With my usual luck, I managed to park in the furthest west parking … Continue reading
