Narnia for Old People

Just cracked open the Dec/Jan Bookforum, which has a review of Laura Miller’s new “skeptic’s adventures in Narnia,” The Magician’s Book. Their cover headline: “NARNIA for grown-ups.”

Center-left headline, advertising an essay by Brian Evenson about Steve Erickson: “NARNIA FOR ADULTS”!

And who could forget Devin Brown’s Beliefnet essay on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, entitled… “Narnia for Grown-Ups“?

None of this is remotely interesting. I have a blog!
