"No pockets."

Happy birthday to jalara! May your next year be the best yet!

I have some links to share...

* My review of Faith and Choice in the Works of Joss Whedon by K. Dale Koontz is now available in the hard-copy scholarly journal Mythlore and online at the Mythlore website.

* How can anyone resist a "Truffle Over Innsmouth"? Check out these chocolates inspired by H.P. Lovecraft ("Choconomicon") and Lord Byron, Dr. John Polidori, and Mary and Percy Shelley ("Gothic Weekend") at Polidori Chocolates. We wants them, Precioussss, yes we do.

* From Listverse: "15 Influential Early Works of Apocalyptic Fiction." I might add "The Comet" by W.E.B. Du Bois (1920), but on the whole, this list hits the high points of the pre-1940 literature, to my mind. (Thanks to Fredosphere!)

* Also from Listverse: "Top 12 Dystopian Novels."

* And from A Distant Soil, a thought-provoking guest post by scribblerworks: "Why Kirk is Mythic and Picard is Not."

"Grendel couldn't pay wergild. My theory? No pockets."
- from "Things Professor Drout Said: Spring 2009 Edition"
