Merriman is gay?

Oops, wrong fantasy*. But in honor of the upcoming extravaganza with Susan Cooper and Gregory Maguire, Kitty and Claire have put online some of the Horn Book Magazine's finest fantasy articles, including Susan Cooper on Tolkien and Tom's Midnight Garden, Gregory Maguire on Philip Pullman, Philip Pullman on The Republic of Heaven, and several more esteemed writers on the whole doom-and-unicorns shebang. They won't be up forever, so read 'em now.

*But I still maintain that, in Susan Cooper's time fantasy King of Shadows, young hero Nat and the Bard of Avon totally had it going on, if you know what I'm saying.

Is it wrong that everytime Rowling gives out another fact like this from the Harry Potter universe, I feel cheated? I want to draw my own conclusions about Dumbledore and Grindelwald, darn it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting those wonderful essays. I've only made it through three so far and I already feel as if light (or enthusiasm for children's lit, really) was shining through my skin. Brilliant stuff! Enough to banish down-heartedness and (whisper it) writer's block, forever. I hope...
