I have a new article up as of yesterday on StreetWraith.net: Jewel of the Genre. I discuss Derrida’s theories on Genre and look at Jan Jacob Mekes’ collection of Detective Fiction short stories Chief Inspector Jewel Friedman.
I have to say…I’m really enjoying this. I love writing and I love talking about writing and talking about books. I really like getting meta with books and talking about what they’re doing. I don’t mean the plot of the story. I mean getting down under the skin of the characters and under the surface of the plot to see what the story is really about.
So, please check it out.
And I’m taking suggestions. We enjoy the podcast, but we want to see it enjoyed by more people. I will never say that I want to be popular, but I would like to be well-liked. More importantly, I want people to enjoy the podcast. I don’t want to change our focus or what we do. I believe that literary discussion about self-published works is a good thing. It’s a necessary thing. By examination I can show the value of these works. So, I don’t want that to change. But I do want it to be interesting and something people will enjoy listening to. So, if you have a recommendation, please share.
