Scholar's Blog Spoiler Zone Update

I've added some spoilerish comments about Cornelia Funke's The Thief Lord to the Scholar's Blog Spoiler Zone.

Look out for a review of Leonard Marcus' essay collection The Wand in the Word soon as I got a copy today. (For some reason I always want to call this book "The Wand in the World" - I have no idea why, though !)

I also call it The Wand and the World. I think for my family, fantasy lit is our "world" so it just flows. I think I will start on my copy too now.

I am SO glad that it's not just me with that slip of the tongue ! I'm trying to finish Roderick Townley's Into the Labyrinth at the moment (not right this very second because I'm discussing whether or not Harry's morally responsible for Quirrell's death !), but I will start Marcus' book soon...

I also have the same problem with the title, but I thought it was because it was too similar to the name of my blog. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!

Well perhaps we're all un/subconsciously thinking of your Blog Sheila ?! *grins*

I confess I was expecting the book's contents to be weightier (I don't know why), so I was initially slightly disappointed on that score - but I've enjoyed the five interviews I've read so far. I didn't take it to work with me, not wanting it to get bashed about in my bag - besides, it's a book to read with a notebook at hand, and buses are notoriously difficult places in which to write legibly !
