How Zombies and Superheroes Conquered Highbrow Fiction

How Zombies and Superheroes Conquered Highbrow Fiction from the Atlantic Monthly. I'm a long-time subscriber -- they let you re-up for $10 after the first year -- and I always like The Atlantic. (Except the occasional theme where a successful middle aged lady tries to justify why she's not married; why do you keep putting that story on the cover once a year every year, editors?)


At the farmers' market, there was a couple selling nuts candied in nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon. They're good nuts like pecans and almonds; no cheap peanuts. I'm glad I bought only a quarter pound because I can't stop eating them. They taste like Christmas. Is Christmas coming already? It was just Rosh Hashanah!

Also I bought lemongrass. I need a bigger sprig; it makes such nice tea and sauces.
