Kari Maaren is a Canadian writer, cartoonist, and musician who lives in Toronto with a large collection of musical instruments and a larger collection of books. Her first novel, a YA science fantasy entitled Weave a Circle Round, will be coming out from Tor in the fall of 2017.

She also has a completed webcomic, West of Bathurst, and a new one, It Never Rains. West of Bathurst has been immortalised in an enormous print collection that is heavy enough to use as a weapon.

Locke & Key Reread: Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft

[image error]



The first trailer for the Netflix series Locke & Key has dropped, and everyone is making excited noises. I read the comics a few years ago and still own the six trades, so this seemed like a good time for a reread, especially since my memory of the story has faded. I do know that the trailer seems rather different from what I remember, but I may be remembering wrong. At any rate, this

“If Josiah was all about order, why were there things about him that didn’t make logical sense? How could he be an embodiment of reason and still not age or sleep? Why did his hair grow but not the rest of him? Why did Cuerva Lachance consistently forget names she had heard two minutes before but remember epithets over periods spanning multiple thousands of years? Wasn’t someone who never followed rules actually following a rule? Why”
Kari Maaren, Weave a Circle Round

“She opened her mouth to say, What’s wrong with you? Why don’t you really see us? You don’t, do you? You’ve taken yourselves off into your own little lives, whatever those are, and we’re just these … extras you happen to have at home. You don’t think you think of us like that. You think you’re ordinary parents who love us and look after us. You’ve written this little story inside your heads about how we fit into your lives.”
Kari Maaren, Weave a Circle Round

“Nothing changed...or everything changed constantly, but not in a very constructive way. That was, Freddy decided, the problem with Cuerva Lachance. There was change but no growth.”
Kari Maaren, Weave a Circle Round
