It doesn't make sense at FIRST. And it has a VERY definitive plot and setting: it's Joyce's final Ireland book. And it's about, among other things, the destruction of a man's reputation from a set of...

This might be a bit of a rush idea, but both Lulu.com and Cafepress.com have bookbinding options, if you're willing to pay to get your copy designed well. I've made several booklets using Cafepress's...

I'm personally a fan of my own public school system, though in the last year or so I'll admit I've been incredibly lucky with the teachers I've had. I can't honestly say that about every public...

I liked it when I read it, though it was a long time ago. It was light and fast, which is always a good thing. And I liked the message. I still prefer Harry Potter, though. :-P

Is it possible, Pen, to write a story with no characters AND no setting? I'd like to see that done. :p

Daniel Handler, mostly. Bill Watterson. Recently, Mark Z. Danielewski, but I haven't been able to attempt anything truly ergodic yet.

The difference is that you attacked Pen in yours. But you apologized, so no harm done. :)

If you still believe that age buys you anything, you obviously haven't learned a thing. Why is it that some of the greatest writers of all time wrote their masterpieces before they were 40? Why don't...

I'd agree with you, but only when dealing with his recent stuff. King's original work - I'm thinking It in particular - are really powerful pieces of work in their own rights. He's never been the...

Then what would you say to all the writers who've told stories without firm characters at all? Novels have been written without any character in them ever: how are they driven?
