High School Reading Assignment

It's a gag centered around the works of Steinbeck and Hemingway--the scourge of high school English students everywhere! Of course, The Old Man and the Sea is more of a novella than a novel.

Much thanks to faithful reader Klinton for suggesting the coupling of Ammon and A Farewell to Arms--the genesis of this little exercise and, by far, the funniest of the book titles. I'm sure there are other worthy combinations of important book and scripture hero. I'm hoping my cultured readership can supply me with more.

The Trial of Sisyphus

Sisyphus, as you likely already know, was a character in Greek mythology cursed to forever push a bolder up a hill, only to have the bolder roll back down at the last moment, forcing him to do it again and again. Kind of like setting up and taking down chairs in the cultural hall.

Hey, I was recently interviewed for the official podcast of my new publisher! If you've got 22 minutes to spare, check it out here (you can also find it on most of your favorite podcast providers, just look under Cedar Fort Publishing and Media: Behind the Scenes). It was fun.

Role of Faith

This kind of logic doesn't hold up to much scrutiny.

Sacrament Inventory

I've recently taken to doing this very thing. And, yes, I figure I won't run out of things to work on for quite some time.
