They are inhabited still.

Mmmm, new Kate Bush. The only thing that could make me temporarily take Glass Hammer out of the CD player. :)

Speaking of Glass Hammer, GHFan.net now has an article about the band's Past Watchful Dragons concert this past Saturday as well as pictures and more pictures of Glass Hammer performing with combined choirs from Belmont University. I was so thrilled to include Glass Hammer in our conference lineup, and they gave us a performance I will never forget. (I still can't believe they played "Run Lisette." ::happy sigh::)

And speaking of Past Watchful Dragons, I am still catching up on LJ. Apologies for my tardy replies!

A few notes:

My article "Exile Without an End: The first ethnic cleansing in American history," which ran in the last issue of REASON Magazine, is now online on its website.

My short piece "Lovecraftian Doings" is now up at Revolution Science Fiction.

And now a quote:

There are myth-places. They exist, each in their own way. Some of them are overlaid on the world; others exist beneath the world as it is, like an underpainting.

There are mountains. They are the rocky places you will reach before you come to the cliffs that border the end of the world, and there are caves in those mountains, deep caves that were inhabited long before the first men walked the earth.

They are inhabited still.

From Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman

"Exile Without an End: The first ethnic cleansing in American history,"

Hmm... This history is new to me - not something I've been introduced to in my travels/studies. Must pursue... I know I should say something educated and intelligent about your review but what really stood out for me was the beauty of this turn of phrase: "Each approach, of course, ultimately built its own shameful legacy."

Thank you so much for reading it and for your kind comments! I'm so glad you thought that line in particular worked. That makes my day. I really do appreciate your feedback.

'Exile Without an End' is a fascinating article! I was particularly interested in several points throughout - the forced removal of people is something we have a strong history of in Australia, not only with our Indigenous people but more recently, our abhorrent treatment of refugees. What most struck me, however, was the point you make about an 'alternative vision' having been lost. What a tragedy.

Thank you so much for your kind feedback! I really appreciate it. It is, unfortunately, a more relevant issue than it should be, as you point out. I hope that Faragher's book will bring more attention to this subject, and to the alternate vision that was lost. At any rate, I'm really grateful for your response to my review. Thanks.
