If you would like to follow up on some of the ideas we talked about last week, have a look at this article/blog The Death of Literature? As the author admits later on, he has had to push together many very different ideas and approaches and some of it needs careful unpacking. However, much of this is done by excellent discussion in the comments section so do read through that as well to get the full benefit.
This may also provide a good opportunity for me to say that the comments section is available to you in this blog if there’s anything you want to say or ask about related to the fantasy literature we’re discussing.
By the way, someone left a brolly in my office last Thursday – given the current downpours, you might want to pick it up sooner rather than later!
