Comment on Claire Åkebrand’s What Was Left of the Stars by Th.

. You're certainly welcome, Lee. Sharing stuff that would be obscure to others is a basic human responsibility, I think.

I'm here for the Jell-O recipes. No, wait. That's another blog. Seriously, thanks, Th. Interesting review on something that otherwise would have flown completely under my radar.

I'm here for Mormon misreadings/strong readings--even where there is no evidence that a Mormon reading might be warranted.

Thanks so much, Harlow! I actually have never seen or read March Tale, but I love Tim Slover's work.



Comment on Artists and Doctrine & Covenants section 58 by bill b

A thoughtful consideration of the dichotomy of being an artist and a faithful servant of the Lord. It seems like a no-win situation. To be confident enough to promote your work, risks the egotism that pushes away spirituality. To fail to seek the approval of the art world is to fail to communicate with your viewer. The task of doing one seems to make it impossible to do well at the other, making it unlikely one can do either task successfully.



Comment on States of Deseret is now available by William Morris

I don't know. It's a lot of time and money for not much monetary return (not that that's a primary consideration but I can only invest so much out of my own resources). Several people have suggested a Kickstarter, but the problem with Kickstarters is that you have to provide a lot of return in order to get pledges, which means they tend not to be as useful as they seem. Although I suppose if we kept the levels lean, it'd be a good way to judge the market because pledges are essentially pre-orders. Another route might be: if the AML is able to successfully revive its literary journal and is open to the idea, I'd love to edit a Mormon alternate history-themed issue.

This was fun. I wish I'd given it a shot too. Any chance you'll do another?



Comment on Remembering Jonathan Langford the critic by SteveP

He was a hero of mine. His critiques of my writing always improved it and I will certainly deeply miss his presence in that, and just his presence.
