This morning Google Alerts brings news of a review of Four British Fantasists in somebody's blog. It's positive, except for the part where the author writes that I "[stumble] a bit in the discussion of Garner and appropriation in Strandloper (I fumed about this for a while)." Now I long to know whether she thinks I was too soft on Garner, or too hard. I've had both reactions, not least from my own complex and contradictory self. But I don't want to be one of those authors who beard bloggers in their dens, either. Stalking them through Google Alerts is quite paranoid enough, thank you. Oh, internet! Oh, humanity!
