I almost forgot: LitReactor.com has published my latest craft column. I think it’s my best one so far. This time the topic is nonlinear narrative (which you might remember me posting about last year). I discuss use of this particular style in the new book from Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Good Squad, as well as movies like Memento. I also post an awesome short story, Continuity of Parks by Julio Cortazar, and I offer my own rendition (butchering?) of the classic fable Little Red Riding Hood.

And, as always, audience participation is encouraged!
