Hello everyone, I’m sorry for the long silence.  A combination of applying to publishing school, a surge of freelance jobs, and some family issues has been keeping my attention elsewhere. Hopefully I’ll be able to fall back into a regular updating pattern again pretty soon. I hope everyone enjoyed their summers (I’m planning to do a giant summer-reading post pretty soon!). In the mean time, enjoy the short piece below on fiction and history and what happens when fiction makes history less, instead of more, real.

Also, I’m thinking of futzing with the layout when I have a moment.
