Plots Have I Laid, Inductions Dangerous…

An interesting discussion of plot here at Steve Goble’s Swords Against Boredom, and a discussion of plot vs. character in fantasy, starting here on the Black Gate message boards.

More later, maybe, as this has been much on my mind lately. But right now I have to run off and explain to a bunch of serious-minded undergraduates why Aristophanes is funny.

      Thanks–it didn’t go that well on Wed, but it’s been a little better since.

      Soon we’re on to Plautus, and I have a feeling that might work well with these guys.
