This weekend I'm off to MythCon, the annual conference of the Mythopoeic Society, which has nominated Genres of Doubt for its Scholarship in Myth and Fantasy Studies Award. As a finalist, I'm joining the ranks of some truly remarkable scholars, many of whom I referenced in my book. I'll be finding out the winner at the banquet on Sunday night, and the rest of the conference looks like an incredible gathering of fantasy scholars and fans. Wish me luck!
My interview with the podcast network New Books Network is available! You can find it on their British History, Intellectual History, Literary Studies, Religion, and Secularism channels, or on their website NewBooksNetwork.com.
I was thrilled to be featured by this great organization for new scholarly work, and to meet Carrie Lynn Evans, a fellow scholar of speculative fiction!
