The semester is over! And I have links to share...


My most recent StarShipSofa "History of the Genre" segment, which discusses Yevgeny Zamyatin's classic dystopia, We (the novel Ursula K. Le Guin called "the best single work of science fiction yet written"), is now available in the latest episode of the podcast. You can download it or listen to it here. If you listen, I hope you enjoy. (A full list of my past podcast segments, with links, is available here.)


LibriVox has some new unabridged readings that may be of special interest:
* The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
* "Asteroid of Fear" by Raymond Z. Gallun
* The Skylark of Space by E.E. "Doc" Smith


The Chronicle of Higher Education has posted two recent articles on Cherokee subjects, since senior writer Lawrence Biemiller has been hanging out in Tahlequah, the capital of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. (These will be available to nonsubscribers for a limited time only.)
* "In Seminary Hall, a Lesson in Cherokee History"
* "Cherokee for Beginners"
The latter talks about the iTunes app for the Cherokee language (Tsalagi), which some of my students happened to use this past semester:




Happy early birthday wishes go out to tuilelindowen, whswhs, and arkhamdenizen. I hope each of you enjoy a great day and a wonderful year to come!
