Tumblr is my equivalent to a daily scrapbook. I fill it with things I've written, am interested in, and am feeling at the time. I hope some of the stuff I post will relate to you or will amuse you at the least!
Review of George Saunders’ CivilWarLand in Bad Decline
This certainly wasn’t one of my best or most articulate vlogs, but I attempt to express what I liked about George Saunders’ CivilWarLand in Bad Decline without giving away the endings to all of the stories contained therein. I also try to encourage watchers and readers alike to go out and pick up a copy of the book. It’s not much of a review, considering I spent most of the video not thinking enough about what I was saying and worrying too much about the flatness of my half-wet hair. But I figured I hadn’t posted one of these in a while, so why not?
This is a little late getting put up on tumblr because life happened, as well as some technical difficulties. Here I’m reviewing Alison Lurie’scollection of short stories Women and Ghosts. The collection is based around – get ready for your mind to be blown – women and ghosts. However, the title is somewhat deceiving, as all of the stories are more genre-bending then the collection’s title might imply. Pardon the constant hair adjusting and general unorganized nature of the review. Though I love the weather, any sort of heat makes me stupid. That’s my theory anyway.
The New York Times is finally hosting a column that covers the science fiction book genre. It is exciting that such an underrated genre is getting a place in such an well-known newspaper. This is another step in taking it mainstream.
