Amazing Adventures of …

Paul, · Categories: Amusements, General, literature

Lethem and Chabon. Patricia Storms has fun with a couple of my favorite manly authors, Jonathan Lethem (“Fortress of Solitude”) and Michael Chabon (“Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay”). The testerone powered comic fixated McSweeney boys, as you might imagine, meet their match.

Nate Raymond has some good feelings about the web-strip at sugarbombs.

Rex Libris Public Librarian

I, Librarian
Jeff Pomerantz points out (over lunch but not on his blog) a new comix from Slave Labor, Rex Libris, Public Librarian. The peek at the book online is worth your time. Should be out this month.

Just spoke to our School of Information and Library Science Librarian, Rebecca Varga, and she tells me that she ordered Rex Libris a few weeks back. If you are in Manning Hall, there is a good chance you can get the book right here!

Note:
After posting this I went to the book store to try to buy or order the book and they couldn’t find it in their inventory (okay) nor could they find it in the suppliers list (not so good). May have to be ordered on the net.
After Jeff, Rebecca and I are done with it of course.

David in the Dome with Friends
elumenati founder and ibiblio alum David McConville sends pics of the elumenati custom inflatable dome as it appeared at this year’s SigGraph conference.

David also sends an alert for his show at The Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center (56 Broadway in downtown Asheville) called “Immersive Media Environments.” The show is part of the “Buskmaster” oops R. Buckminster Fuller celebration there.
When (too soon): Thursday, August 18, 8:00 pm
