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!

Things have been rather slow around here. There is the perpetual job-hunting that is continually frustrating (as in, seeming to go no-where). Scraping by is no fun. I had hopes my niece Karen would be able to visit, but that … Continue reading

Back in July, I posted about the beginning of my trip to Mythcon in Albuquerque. But I never did get around to fleshing out the rest of the trip. And then when I returned, I’d written a brief Mythcon Report … Continue reading

The Creature is released from his travel protection. “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, I’m free at last!” (I think he’s over-playing it, but I’ll let it ride, since he’s been wrapped up for two weeks.) It … Continue reading
