James (eisigeyes) | 16 comments Hey there, just wanted to say I'm going to merge the Magical Realism group with Magic Realism (well, at least invite members to join). I'm a bit of a lazy moderator and it seems like you're doing an awesome job here, so I'd love to take part in a more active setting. I've been working on a rather large bibliography that contains works of suspected magical realist influence. I'll be adding books to my profile as I figure the bibliography out more, but if anyone is interested in it, just let me know :) Would love to get some shared input.

James (eisigeyes) | 16 comments Since I am not reading at a lightning pace, I would also be happy to upload my list for anyone interested. Or if you would like it, feel free to e-mail me at That way we all could add to it. Not everything on the list is 100% magical realism, as I have not narrowed it down, but where I have found major authors of such influence, I have included all of their works with a chronology. This is a work in progress I intend to use for later scholarly studies, so any additions are always welcome. :)

Heidi Garrett (heidi_g) Zoe, you can see I have been lame in keeping up:( shame on me! Yes, I would be very interested in your MR list

How do you want the list? I can put it up here, but if you prefer a word document I could email it to you. Just message me with your email address. The list is long and getting longer.
