Elsie Dinsmore

by Martha Finley

It is often too bad when a work has a 20th and 20th century mind imposed on it. Read Elsie as an example of important Victorian literature. Read it as an example of the world as it was in the 1860s and on for many many years. Stop trying to turn it into a cause, or impose modern morality values onto it. Accept it as it is, and then go read Huck Finn.

Author of the Day

J.B. Markes
J.B. Markes has had a fascination with fantasy stories ever since his aunt bought him a copy of the Legend of Zelda, an 8-bit RPG game. He now writes in the genre and likes to add unexpected twists and a touch of humor. His latest novel, Necrospect is no exception, featuring a necromancer as the good guy, a world where magic has serious side effects and an interesting murder mystery. As our author of the day, Markes gives us a behind the scenes look at Necrospect, talks about his top-secret skills and reveals what he is working on now.
