LitRecapper: Remember Remember, The Week Ending The 5th of November
After last week's epic recap of LitReactor's epic launch month, I bet you're wondering, "How could they possibly top that?" Well, if the first week of November is any indication, we're off to a good start. We hit you with two, count 'em, two new interviews right off the bat: cult provocateur and author of the George Miles Cycle, Dennis Cooper; and everyone's favorite pop culture journalist cum novelist, Chuck Klosterman. We also hit you with 3 new reviews: Hell & Gone by Duane Swierczynski, One Click: Jeff Bezos and the Rise of Amazon.com by Richard L Brandt, and the incorrectly labeled as a column Shockaholic by Carrie Fisher (hopefully we'll get around to fixing that one). To top it off, we hit you with an update on MIA sci-fi author, Jeff Noon, with exclusive details straight from the author's mouth. That's a lot of hittin'. If anyone asks, you fell down the stairs.
Also worth mentioning:
Even though they were posted on October 31st, they are technically still part of this week, so I wanted to highlight two of our Halloween themed horror columns. Part two of Tina's Terrifying Top Ten Terrorsleep Tirade, and Karina Wilson's conversation starting Does King Deserve The Crown? It's not too late to get your argue on.
This week also marked the beginning of NaNoWriMo, and we celebrated by debating the pros and cons of the conproversial (that's right) topic of binge writing. Some good points being made on both sides, so go kick some shins.
For those looking to improve their craft, there are still a few seats left for Craig Clevenger's 200 Proof Storytelling master class, which begins November 7th. If you're serious about sharpening those writing skills, and I mean really serious, just ask around- this is the class to take. Wussenheimers and pussyfooters need not apply.
And finally, there is an interesting discussion going on in the forum entitled, Pedophilia or Freedom of Choice? Check it out, if you dare.
That's the proverbial "it." Coming at you this week: 3 more tasty reviews, including Haruki Murakami's monster sized masterwork, 1Q84; as well as a special appearance by a certain "badass" guest reviewer. You'll also get a second installment of Richard's popular Storyville column, a new batch of answers from The Lit Coach, our list of the Top 10 badass kids in literature (unrelated to our guest blogger- or is it?), and an answer to the loaded question, when did a bra become more offensive than a decapitation? That's in addition to our usual Sir Mix-A-Lot sized butt-load of craft articles and news posts. So keep reading, writing, and waited with bated breath. We'll see you next week (tomorrow). Until then, the balcony is closed.
