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!

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
I have just added a “new” paper to the ScribblerWorks website, one I gave at Mythcon 28 in 1997. “The People of the Lie in the City: Spiritual Development in All Hallow’s Eve” uses a descriptive methodology found in the … Continue reading
Another of my online friends, Tim made a vivid impression from the first post of his that I read. He was justly ticked off by a particular event (that affected him personally), but wht impressed me was his sharp, satricial … Continue reading
After reading a discussion on LiveJournal about problems that site has been having, and how many people are now backing up their posts there by duplicating them elsewhere, I think I will start a reposting project of my own entries. … Continue reading
Over on The Scribbler’s Guide blog, I just announced the winners for my little contest. I got a handful of good blog topic suggestions and look forward to working on those. And I hope to have more news about book … Continue reading
