News, A Free Download, and a YouTube Video

* The always-eldritch Dwight MacPherson is offering the first chapter of his forthcoming Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom for free download. It's Lovecraft! It's MacPherson! It's free! What's not to love? Check out the preview here.

* My paper on the literary ancestors of the TV series Fringe (including Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and the tradition of "SF investigator" literature) has been accepted for presentation in March at SONAR: The Symposium On Nerdy Academic Research (I love that name!), which should be loads of fun.


As you may recall, last May I went to DC to film some videos for The Institute for Humane Studies. Well, the first has gone live into the YouTube 'verse. More are forthcoming.

(For those of you who know me in real life, no, I don't know why I look like I haven't slept in six months. For those of you who don't know me in real life, meet the lisp that fought my childhood speech therapists and won!)

As usual, I'm far better via the written word than in person; FYI, this mini-talk is based on my article "Not the Same Old Hickory: The Contested Legacy of Andrew Jackson" in Reason.
