Today we’re talking about AUDIO Books.

Linda’s a  pr...

I was scrolling down my Facebook feed and I saw a ton of Naruto slash. I am not familiar with this anime, but man, is there a lot of gay fanfiction written about it.

After the deaths of J.F. Gonzalez and Tom Piccirilli, it’s no secret I had what the old timers used to call a “nervous breakdown”. But I don’t call it that.

More thoughts on the nature of story from The Mystery Feast by Ben Okri:


"As this is a celebration of storytelling, it is important to state that stories can also be pernicious. Stories have also been used for evil. They have been used for the denigration, the demonisation, and the exterminatio...

Another Tax Scam for the Rich
Hard to believe, but the Trump administration is proposing yet another massive tax
windfall for the rich. 

It would be to reduce their capital gains taxes. Those
are taxes on the increased value of their stocks and bonds, businesses, and
other valuables, when they sell th...

It’s difficult being someone my age who says she writes. Especially when I explain to people what kind of stories I like to write. Then, when I try to advertise my work that I post online, I always get the “do you write fanfiction?” question. This is possibly by far the worst question you can ask...

It’s easy — and not wrong — to think that truth is in dire danger in the era of Donald Trump.


His own record of issuing breathtaking falsehoods from the exalted platform of the White House is unprecedented in American history. So is his consistent refusal to back down when a statement is proven fa...

The Thought Bubble convention has become something I look forward to every year.  It’s the only event I have a table at, at which I sell items from my back catalogue, mostly because I’d feel weird just sitting there without something in front of me.  It’s largely an excuse to meet the lovely, rat...

I've never been one to pore over the obituary columns. I did do a column about obituaries recently, because they are an acknowledged art form and you get some pretty brilliant examples of the form every now and then.
This one, from the New York Times, is almost perfect.

Kate Atkinson Interview with Kate Atkinson
The year is 1940, and Juliet Armstrong is on the trail of Nazi collaborators. Juliet isn't some high-living MI5 femme fatale; the protagonist of Transcription , a new novel by Kate Atkinson, is just an unworldly, if cynical, 18-year-old girl who writes up surveilled sessions between fascist sympathizers. But though she's a minor cog in the war effort among the secret agents and bureaucrats, she's soon pulled into bigger things—events that haunt her years later. ...more
