In Gene Wolfe
I have to admit I was a little disappointed not to be jumping right into The Fifth Head of Cerberus this week. I've been waiting impatiently. That said, I was delighted by the wrap up discussion in Tuesday's episode! I particularly enjoyed the discussion on GK Chesterton's influence. The passage Glenn read of his having to do with the dehumanizing effects of consumption really struck a cord. I've been confronting the reality of my own habits of consumption lately, and it's encouraging to have people like Chesterton and Wolfe lighting the way. At the same time, their eloquence is completely unnerving. Regardless, I can't wait to go back and read Sonya, Crane Wesselmen and Kittee. I appreciated the recommended reading as well, I never mind knowing where to find more good work on a topic I'm interested in. Reading In Praise of Idleness now. Thanks guys! Can't wait to start Fifth Head. Keep up the good work.
