The Situation arrived today, and it looks great! Woo-hoo!
Also, Farah Mendlesohn’s Rhetorics of Fantasy–on the same day as The Magic Pickle, which, for some reason, cracks me up. As well as two literary magazines we’ll need to pass on to the third-year guest editor for Best American Fantasy. (To be announced later this week.) I know Farah’s spent a long time on Rhetorics, so I’m going to curb my natural inclination to be wary of the kind of (re-)classification of types of fantasy that seems to be its thesis and just dive right in and report back.
So, that said, it has now been two weeks since I started posting photos of books received. I’d like to continue doing so, in part because it means that every book that comes in gets at least this minimum coverage, but also because people seem to be enjoying it. Am I right or wrong? If most of you just think it’s cluttering up the blog, let me know.
