A New Snark

The wonderful illustrator Mahendra Singh has a new edition of The Hunting of the Snark fresh out in time for Christmas. Mahendra describes this as a ‘graphic novel version’.  We haven’t peeked inside yet, but the cover looks entirely intriguing don’t you think. Is the Snark itself actually going to make an appearance? Will anyone […]

The Virtual Victorian

Here’s an extract from the Virtual Victorian blog (unpromisingly titled “The Shy and Stammering Man”): But, despite loving to visit art galleries and the theatre, the stuttering, unmarried clergyman was never truly comfortable in the adult ‘society’ world, preferring to indulge in the uncomplicated friendship of children. Such sincere and intense ‘relationships’ have since led […]

First post at new home

Here we are at our shiny new home, with a shiny new custom-made theme.  More later about why we had to move…

Addendum

Well, we’ve been told those changes to Wiki we talked about were actually made by one of the authors mentioned – who has now taken down the reference to the other author mentioned (at his request we understand), and modified the entry in other small ways.

Lipchenko's Wonderland

It gets a little solitary and windswept out here on Myth Point, tending our lonely beacon with only gulls and other Carroll outcasts for company, so we’re taking a welcome break to talk of other things.  Namely the  amazing Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (ISBN 978-0-88776932-0) illustrations of Oleg Lipchenko, that have just won the 2009 […]
