Broken Pencil‘s Canzine 2015 took place yesterday, at the Art Gallery of Ontario from 1-7 pm.

The panel I participated on, “Magick and the Occult in the Independent Arts,” was a lot of fun, and by the time we started the room was packed, with people standing at the back and sitting on the floor, which was super amazing.

My talk focused on the history and development of occult periodicals, both...

Charlotte Brontë
“Jane, be still; don't struggle so like a wild, frantic bird, that is rending its own plumage in its desperation."
"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being, with an independent will; which I now exert to leave you.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Jennifer Egan
“It was the hat. He looked sweet in the hat. How could a man in a fuzzy blue hat have used human bones to pave his roads?”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad

Jack Layton
“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world.”
Jack Layton

Evelyn Waugh
“Punctuality is the virtue of the bored.”
Evelyn Waugh
