First, the Norton Critical Editions have their own Twitter account. I love love love the NCEs and, in fact, have assigned three of them (Heart of Darkness, Things Fall Apart, Modern African Drama) in a course this term. I cannot express the incredible booklust the background photo on that Twitter page causes me...
Second, the NCE Twitterers are seeking people's favorite ghost/horror stories. I said Joanna Russ's "My Dear Emily" and Robert Aickman's "The Stains", though could have certainly listed 100 others, too. Maybe they'll decide to do a big Norton Critical Edition of horror stories.... Wouldn't that be fun? Go share your own favorites!
In other news, I am not alone in connecting certain elements of the work of William Faulkner with that of Samuel R. Delany. [In that discussion, I'm username Melikhovo]
In further other news, and also from Ta-Nehisi Coates's extraordinary blog, news from Paris Review editor Lorin Stein that there is an upcoming interview with Samuel Delany. (And I expect by the time it's published, Stein will have learned to spell Delany's name!) I think this is the first time I've beaten the Paris Review to an interview... I haven't asked Chip about it yet, but will do so soon.
Finally, best thing I read all day: Zunguzungu on the films of Judd Apatow, masculinity, homoeroticism, homophobia, etc.
