Here’s my take on Blue is the Warmest Color.
And here’s a piece on Mike Flanagan’s Absentia that I contributed to Cinespect's round-up of underrated horror movies. Really glad I had the opportunity to spend some time thinking about that film again.
Working on a few other pieces while attending to the business of running a business. It’s a good, crazy time.
Now that Posterous is heading the way of the Great Auk, I’m making the move to Tumblr.
Wool and Woot! I contributed a piece on Hugh Howey’s WOOL to this month’s Slate Book Review. The story of how WOOL evolved from being a self-published short story into a literary phenomenon is fascinating, and I think it’s a real inflection point for creativity, technology and publishing. It’s also yet another look at the power of fandom — and the lovely, complicated, and potentially vexing relationship between creators and fans. In other words: writing this piece felt like coming home.
