1. I hesitate to mention this, given a couple of odd threads that popped up, as it were, on my last post. But if they hadn’t, I would have mentioned this anyway, so I do so. If you
follow me see my point catch my drift comprehend my gist–never mind; after a certain point everything looks Freudian.
Yesterday, apparently even as I was dreaming about bowling, according to Language Log, Blondie was talking about bowling with Dagwood. I note that the great Blishing in the Zeitgeist has been followed by a great bowling. Hm: Blish – Blondie – bowling… Is some alphabetical order being followed? Here’s hoping the Zeitgeist hits EN in late April.
2. Now up: the preview page for Black Gate 13 (Sometimes a Black Gate is just a black gate, by the way.) It looks like a great issue, with a new story by Peadar Ó Guilín and what I think will be John Hocking’s debut for the magazine.
3. At the Blog Gate, Judith Berman tackles non-western archetypes in myth, with a few well-deserved swipes at Joseph Campbell and others.
