Happy Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!

How do you turn a Christmas tree into a Cthulhu tree? Add tentacles!

Librivox has new unabridged narrations of particular interest:
* the class Gothic novel The Monk: A Romance by Matthew Lewis (1795)
* the classic science fiction novel In The Days of the Comet by H.G. Wells (1906)

In other news, here are my first two convention confirmations for the new year. I'll be an author guest at the following 2012 cons:
* StellarCon 36
* ConCarolinas

Our course outline for the Spring 2012 "Taking Harry Seriously: The Artistry and Meanings of the Harry Potter Saga" class, offered online for audit or M.A. credit, is now available here at the Mythgard Institute website, as is the outline for Corey Olsen's "The Making of Myth: C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien" course.

Taking Harry Seriously: The Artistry and Meanings of the Harry Potter Saga


International registration is now open through January 13, 2012. More information is available here at The Mythgard Institute.
