Still Alive, I Think -- Hey, Calls for Papers

I've been quiet because these disastrous North Carolina wildfires are staging a full-fledged, up-close-and-personal reunion between my asthma and me. Good times. Have handful of inhalers, will travel.

I have an all-new appreciation for what the "Code Red" Air Quality Alert means. If I have a metaphorical boggart in my metaphorical cabinet, I'm pretty sure it must look like a cloud of smoke and ash about now.

Just to make it official: firefighters have now joined my Greatest Heroes List. They're up there with the all-time greats (veterinarians, librarians, and astronauts). Thank you, first responders, for all you have done and are continuing to do throughout this unprecedented tragedy.

And now for some news you can use, here are a few Calls for Papers:
- Women-in-Peril or Final Girls? Representing Women in Gothic and Horror Cinema
- Social Issues in Children's and YA Literature
- Revisiting Northern Exposure
- Psychopharmacology and British Literature: 1650 to 1900

I hope all is well with you, my friends!
