Many Palimpsests

I am a fannish magpie with a lot of feelings about narrative structure, social and legal history, and pinnipeds.

This is a fannish side blog.

Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter!

Today we celebrate the 148th birthday of the famous children’s author, Beatrix Potter, who is mainly known for writing The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Here at the University of Iowa, we are fortunate enough to have a copy of one of the first printings of this charming tale, which according to our acquisition papers, was previously owned by Potter’s niece!

This particular book was printed in a grouping of 250, and is widely believed to have been done so in 1901. However, the acquisition papers accompanying this copy state that the author’s records say it was privately printed in 1900, and later issued in 1901. This copy is also interesting as it contains the later omitted pages showing how Peter Rabbit’s father met his demise by way of pie.

A mighty fine book. If you are looking for a scifi series of truly epic scale, then Iain M. Banks’ Culture series is highly recommended.

an AU in where Mordred is miraculously alive, Guinevere is still a queen, and she forgives him the Camlann


the degree to which I am here for this is slightly shameful
