Today Andrea Jones, the illustrious author of Hook & Jill, brought an upcoming book to my attention.
For all those who are not as obsessive as we tend to be and would thus already know, this year is the Centennial of the novel form of Peter Pan. Yep. The second 100 year date of The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up.
To be precise, it's October 11.
And to commemorate this grand date, W. W. Norton & Company is publishing The Centennial Edition on the very same day of the calendar. Even better, it's annotated!
The painstaking task of annotation fell to Maria Tatar, who chairs the Program in Folklore and Mythology at Harvard University. An author and editor quite familiar with the folklore and mythology akin to Peter Pan, it seems as if we are in for a treat by very capable hands.
I've already got my copy reserved. But that probably goes without saying. Here's a direct link.
Thank you, Andrea, for passing this along! Quite the pleasure to have your pop-up plunder.
I am a fiction writer. Mostly I compose in the Urban Fantasy genre. When asked, I usually liken it to "The Twilight Zone" - extraordinary events emerging in everyday life. I graduated with Honors in Creative Writing from Knox College in 1993. Obviously I also scribble cartoonish drawings.
Here you will find my nonfiction - the place for me to share my thoughts with you, keep you posted on upcoming events and allow me to interact.
If you wish to leave a note, use my cartoon quill and ink.
