Fantasy #56

The November issue of Fantasy Magazine is now on sale at their website! My story will be available to read next week, along with a characteristically peculiar interview with me. (Characteristic of myself, not of the magazine.)

Last week I went to a wonderful concert by the early music ensembles Dialogos and Sequentia. As I’m interested in early music, it was an enjoyable evening, marred only by two things: an atrocious cell phone ringing while Benjamin Bagby accompanied himself on the Germanic harp in a lament for Charlemagne, and the fact that one of the musicians bore a marked resemblance to Julian Assange– leading me to repeatedly imagine Julian Assange singing in a vocal ensemble, an idea so inexplicably hilarious to me that I had to keep biting my lip so I wouldn’t laugh out loud. It seems a possibility– Julian Assange in a vocal ensemble, I mean. The magic of the English countryside is strong, old, and full of whimsy. Maybe Assange will become an Ellingham Hall fixture, engaging in Morris dancing and attending the occasional local fete.
