We took a two week hiatus here at PR but are back blog-strong. Later today, or in 5 minutes, I’m going to post a very special mini essay on the strains of a maybe pile by the Editor-in-Chief.

Since we’ve been gone, a great deal has happened in the literary world. A scandal at Oxford, an “It’s a Wonderful Life” moment at almost-bankrupt Salt Publishing, and thats just in Britain. Here, we had New England Review on the near-future chopping block while reports of the Kindle being print media’s savior keep cropping up (as do the sales of a kindle).

So a lot is happening. And now for something completely different (or the same).
