In the meanwhile 

Going to let the further Eisner thoughts stew for a bit. Everyone's read enough for a while now, anyhow.

In the meantime, here's some Mercury-ish links:
Over at Parkerspace, Jeff reports on Mercury's Day of the Dude.

Small Beer Press has brought out a new issue of Lady Churchhill's Rosebud Wristlet, their highly regarded literary zine. It's edited by Kelly Link and Gavin Grant, who rule. The covers are my fault. Read about it here.

Small Beer also published Family Reunion, which got a couple of nice notices recently. Jim Henley named it one of his Best of 2004, and Ginger Meyerson at Sequential Tart gave it a very kind review. Sean Stewart, who wrote it, is featured in a terrific interview here. Here's a sample quote from Sean, on the uses of fantasy:

"ask yourself which makes a better scene: Hamlet lying on his therapist's couch saying, "I feel conflicted about my mother's new relationship" -- or Hamlet on the battlements, unstrung at the feet of a father fresh-breathed up from the cracks of Hell?"
