A Few Quick Notes

I hope all is well with you, my friends!

A few quick notes:

1. If you missed my "Sherlock, Science, and Ratiocination" seminar, you can now purchase all 36 hours of lecture (in both video and audio formats) for a reduced price from Mythgard Institute at Signum University. (The shop also includes course packs for my past classes, including "Science Fiction, Parts 1 & 2," "The Dystopian Tradition," and "Taking Harry Potter Seriously.") Go here for more details.

2. This week's episode of StarShipSofa includes my latest "Looking Back into Genre History" segment, which celebrates Chris Carter's Millennium TV series and the current Back to Frank Black Campaign related to it. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

3. The Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University has created a YouTube Channel for my LL videos.

I'll leave you with a touch of holiday cheer...

So what does one get with a Course Pack? Is this strictly a download, or is there a DVD with it? (I couldn't find out from the site.) Also . . . will your forthcoming Gothic class be available in this format?

Wow, you're right - not much description! Sorry. With the Course Pack you get all of the lectures in two electronic formats: video (split screen between my PowerPoint slides and me) and audio only. Mythgard doesn't do DVDs. Everything is offered as downloadable files.

The Gothic class should be offered the same way once the semester is over.

Thanks so much for being interested! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
