a commonplace from eastrod

I've already noted this on twitter and facebook, so I suppose it's already an old tale, given the scorching storytelling pace of the internet, but there's an interesting new books blog underway from one R. T., someone I encountered first on critic D. G. Myers's book blog, and later via novelist Scott G. F. Bailey and . . . here. He is especially keen on Flannery O'Connor, but seems to have a wide range of concerns. Why don't you pop by and help him launch? He's posting frequently and has lots of questions!

  2. Thank you, Marly, for the kind words! But my words are inadequate to express my gratitude.

    R. T.,

    Hope it helps a bit...

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
