Reviews by Heather Ordover

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

by Mark Twain

We're reading this book over at CraftLit.com right now and I LOVE this book. I think it might be a mistake, though, to equate Twain with The Boss as a previous reviewer does. Admittedly, it's hard not to, what with the tone of voice sounding SO like Twain, but I think MT was pretty vociferous in his own indictments of Hank Morgan. Twain just criticizes EVERYthing and everyone--part of his charm--but does it in a way that makes us laugh. It's a pity everyone thinks they know this book but really only know Bugs and Bing (not that I'm slamming either). The book is way deeper and even sadder than you'd expect. The link to the Connecticut Yankee podcasts (they're all free like this site is) can be found here: http://crafting-a-life.com/craftlit/?cat=59

Author of the Day

David Niall Wilson
David Niall Wilson has had experiences in real life that can rival anything you would find in a novel. It is a good thing too, as the stories he collected while walking these strange and interesting paths has shaped him as a writer. David is not only the author of numerous novels and short stories, but also runs his own print, digital and audio publishing company. This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
