The Longest Road in the Universe: A Collection of Fantastical Tales

The Longest Road in the Universe Second Edition

Three broken people; a monk bearing a terrible scar, a warrior facing a terrible sorrow, and a woman hiding a terrible past face a relentless army so difficult to defeat it might as well be invincible. Genetically-altered citizens of a volcanic desert planet rush to preserve their cultural heritage as a terraforming project consigns them to death. A population of slaves engineered to love its owners comes to grips with their disappearance, while a grief-stricken pilot follows the trail of his missing master to the center of the galaxy. Supermassive singularities at the end of the universe contemplate the harmony before and the quiet ahead; mourning, eulogizing, and creating something altogether new. Discover these and other stories in The Longest Road in the Universe: A Collection of Fantastical Tales.

What is performance?

What is performance?

Hello, and welcome to the Folklore & Fiction newsletter. In this edition, I'm writing about performance with help from scholars Dan Ben-Amos, Roger D. Abrahams, Richard Bauman, and others, author and playwright William Shakespeare, and the McGahan Lees Irish Dance Academy. I'm also exploring possible uses of performance in storytelling. This is the most theoretically chewy of the newsletters I've published in the last two years, but I've endeavoured to make it tasty as well, so grab a glass of water and dig in. =)
