Remember, Remember

Happy Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night. Today's a great day for reading a good book or watching a good film. :)

Happy birthday to madkestrel. May your day be fantastic and your next year the very best yet!

* On the latest PotterCast, the official podcast of the Leaky Cauldron, I once again join the wonderful Potter Pundits as a special guest to discuss the relationship of Gothic literature to the Harry Potter universe. Our spooky segment begins 32 minutes into the show, and you can listen to/download the podcast here. This is the second half of a two-part series; the first half of our conversation is available here.

* There have been several links recently related to dystopian/apocalyptic and/or young adult literature that I thought might be of interest:
-- "Teen Books Lure Grown-Up Eyes" (re: cross-reading)
-- "It's The End of the World As We Know It" (re: post-apocalyptic fiction)
-- "Why I Like to Write About the Apocalypse" (re: apocalyptic fiction)
-- "Research Reveals That Apocalyptic Stories Changed Dramatically 20 Years Ago" (re: apocalyptic fiction)

Have a great day, my friends!


Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see of no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
