The Fine Print
The NC discussions are open to anyone. It's a friendly place, easy to join. Just sign in on the comment box with your email address and write your comment. If you stick around, people will get to know you and you're in (except, of course, for the usual credit and criminal record checks, birth and citizenship authentication, school transcripts starting from kindergarten, photocopies of tax records, ID, credit cards, debit cards, etc.). If you turn up often and seem to get the drift of the magazine, you'll be invited to submit. Please respect the generally high level of camaraderie and amiability already in evidence.
The management wishes to acknowledge the financial support of Douglas "Deep-Pockets" Glover and no one else.
Thanks; this looks as if it may be interesting. I have a particular attachment to Oskar (a quotation from his book, “In art, there is only form and the extremity of utterance,” is pinned up on my study door). I do hope no one is accusing him of having sex with a bear, though. 🙂
This is intriguing. I’ve been looking for an angle into novels set in the past, as opposed to historical novels.
I read Captain N (long ago) as a contemporary novel, or maybe a novel set in the past implicitly counterpointing the present (a clever remark I’d be hard put to explain). There is the same moral/territorial ambiguity, past and present.
