You're invited!

Happy birthday to artwhisperer, and best wishes for many happy returns of the day!

* You're invited: I will be giving the keynote address ("Pushing the Boundaries of English Studies: From Middle-earth to Hogwarts") at this year's English Studies Symposium at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, Tennessee on March 21, 2009. The event will include a full day of presentations made by graduate students and faculty from universities all over the Southeast. The bad news is that there is a fee to attend, but the good news is that there's also a fully catered deli lunch at no extra cost. If you're in/near the area, I hope you'll stop by and say hello. It would be great to see you there!

* My most recent "History of the Genre" segment (this one is about Emilie Flygare-Carlén, the first professional Swedish novelist, and her contribution to speculative fiction) is available in the latest episode of StarShipSofa: The Science Fiction Audio Magazine, "Aural Delights No. 69." You can download it here, listen to it streaming here, or get it via iTunes under "StarShipSofa." A list of my other podcast commentaries, interviews, and unabridged dramatic readings is available here with links. To those of you listening, many thanks indeed! I hope you enjoy it.

Rest in peace, Bill Buchanan. Augh! I will miss you very much!
