If you like books — and I have to assume you do, or why would you be reading this blog? — I invite you to read my interview with Michael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize winning books critic for the Washington Post.
You can also read my feature story about Thomas Wolfe fan Aldo Magi. He's a very serious fan, arguably more serious about Wolfe than I am about Robert Anton Wilson.
Special bonus for readers of this blog: Mr. Dirda has shared his list of his 10 favorite science fiction novels with me (limited to writers in English, one book per writer) and so I pass it on to you:
1. The Time Machine, H.G. Wells.
2. The Purple Cloud, M.P. Shiel.
3. Last and First Men, Olaf Stapledon.
4. The Stars My Destination, Alfred Bester.
5. A Canticle for Leibowitz, Walter M. Miller Jr.
6. The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. LeGuin.
7. The Drowned World, J.G. Ballard.
8. The Man in the High Castle, Philip K. Dick.
9. Dune, Frank Herbert.
10. The Book of the New Sun, Gene Wolfe.
