Today I talk with Chris Andersen about his mail car, comics, the importance or non-importance of reading fiction, television, and the bad ways we teach literature . . . and we drink. To be honest, Chris stopped by just to plug his new graphic novel, and we ended up talking for almost two hours. Chris […]

This month’s Laboratory started off with a sad trombone, as Stephen went off in the sticks with his version of the exercise, and I completely dropped the ball, finishing a paragraph and two sentences.

In each episode, my co-host and I will discuss experimentation in literature (as well as many other things) and – this will be the laboratory part – we’ll assign ourselves a writing exercise each month.

Back in February, Kazuo Ishiguro made a comment in an NY Times article about him and his new novel, The Sleeping Giant, that made Ursula K. Le Guin upset enough to write an article defending the fantasy genre and reviewing Ishiguro’s book . . . unfavorably. I had read the Electric Literature article and shrugged. […]
