This is an intermittent blog from Paul Kincaid. I am the author of What It Is We Do When We Read Science Fiction and A Very British Genre; I received the Thomas D. Clareson Award in 2006 and the BSFA Non-Fiction Award in 2011.
This is a replacement for my old Livejournal, Through the Dark Labyrinth. The early posts will mostly consist of pieces pulled from that blog (I’ll note where and when they first appeared at the bottom of each entry, in italics), but eventually it will continue as a record of my reading. It is intended to be mostly for my private use, but if you happen upon it, you are welcome.

I stumbled across your site because it’s referenced in the recent release of R. A. Lafferty shorts. There’s a URL in the book that leads to a page on your site that doesn’t seem to exist any more. And Google searching didn’t immediately find the repost of it, which is kind of odd. Just figured you might want to know in case you want to 403 redirect it or something.

The only Lafferty I’ve written about is “Thus We Frustrate Charlemagne”, and that piece is here: https://ttdlabyrinth.wordpress.com/2014/08/01/reprint-thus-we-frustrate-charlemagne/
