History

Wylding Hall and the Saving Gimmick

Have you ever read a novel that does something so strange that you kind of get revitalized about the whole art-form? It’s a very rare feeling, because if you’re someone who reads a lot of books, it can start to feel like there’s not much experimentation with the form. 959 more words

Book Reviews

'Available Dark' by Elizabeth Hand

After I finished reading Wylding Hall, I immediately picked up Available Dark for a re-read. Also by Elizabeth Hand, this novel works well as a companion piece – the very English tradition of folk music-meets-countryside-eerie swapped for Nordic folklore noir, with an ear-splitting, black metal soundtrack. 906 more words

Book Review: Wylding Hall by Elizabeth Hand

I did a little fiction this week, leaving behind the heavy political tomes (although really, Fire and Fury wasn’t exactly a heavy read) and picked up a fun little mystery/maybe supernatural book called Wylding Hall. 817 more words

Reading Wylding Hall

I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth Hand’s fiction for a long time. Waking the Moon, which seems to be a lot of people’s Elizabeth Hand gateway drug (at least, among readers around my age), came out when I was in college. 577 more words
