But it shoud be a fun class today -- we're going to talk about the boundaries of genre -- and hey, that means I get to make them read Jed's essay on genre and slipstream. :-) In this class, I'm requiring them to write one piece that is pure fantasy or sf, but their other piece can be anything with a speculative element. We'll talk about some of the possibilities today, as well are reviewing the differences between fantasy and magical realism. Should be fun. :-)
This afternoon, Lisette's dad's wedding. This evening, DuckCon in Naperville. Long day. Better drink some tea.
