"The Year of the Dragon" was the result of a challenge to write a novel in the genre of Charles Williams, and one of the concepts developed by Williams and his friends (the Inklings) was the Arthurian distinction between Britain (this world) and Logres (Britain's better nature -- Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde applied to nations). I believe South Africa had its "Logres moment" between 1989 and 1999, and then the old bad nature resurfaced. And yes, someone needs to write about that, Same dragon returned? Different dragon? I don't know, but it needs to be someone more familiar with a different manifestations of evil. (less)

But they have a habit of reappearing in different guises. As Paolo Freire, the Brazilian educationist, put it, the oppressed internalises the image of the oppressor and so becomes an oppressor in turn. So in Soweto in 1976 A.P. Treurnicht and Ferdi Hartzenberg were channelling Alfred Lord Milner, and by 2046, if not sooner, some Minister of Education will be channelling them.(less)

The Paranormal in literature and popular culture

Paranormal hasn’t been part of my active vocabulary until recently. I’d seen the word, and had a vague idea of what it meant, gleaned mainly from books like Supernature by Lyall Watson. It was all 1970s stuff like Uri Geller bending spoons by looking at them and razor blades being sharpened in pyramids. Mildly-interesting uh-huh stuff, of no practical use. A bent teaspoon stirs no tea, and I ha...

Stephen Hayes Stephen Hayes said: " I picked this up cheap at the local library, and bought it to learn a bit more about the Frankfurt School of sociology and their trademark of critical theory. The book is 40 years old, but still, lots of people in academia seem to quote them. "
