An Independent Socialist Magazine - Monthly Review
Reading a handwritten article about handwriting, in a 21st-century magazine, is like listening to your great-great-grandfather shout in the middle of a crowded multiplex about the incomparable glories of vaudeville and the lost art of wearing hats in public. And yet, somehow, here we are. Certain vestigial urges have been awakened, deep in the muscles of my fingers and wrists, by Script & Scribble, Kitty Burns Florey’s paean to the now nearly defunct barbarism of dragging ink trails across paper. (I’ve switched to print, for the reasons we always end up switching to print: My handwriting, set against a neat field of type, looks like a giant mess of alien runes, and my keyboard-weakened fingers tend to cramp up after a couple of sentences.) Florey, a nun-educated “scriptomaniac,” lovingly traces the history of handwriting, from its ancient birth to its imminent demise.

Book Examiner: The top 20 most annoying book reviewer cliches and how to use them all in one meaningless review In 1984, George Orwell created newspeak, a language "whose vocabulary gets smaller every year." While newspeak exists only in fiction (or does it....?) an even more pervasive, destructive language-killer has infiltrated the newspapers, news sites, and literary blogs of the world -- reviewerspeak. The purpose of reviewerspeak is to force every free-thinking book, movie, and art reviewer into the submissive parroting of only a handful of approved reviewer words to describe any item that may come their way. Call it laziness, call it the incessant demands of the ever-wakeful internet, call it fear of the wrath of Harold Bloom, but reviewers -- particularly book reviewers -- spew out these same, tired old clichés with the force and regularity of Linda Blair in a scene from The Exorcist.
Top 10 Creepiest Tales of Edgar Allan Poe Creepy Edgar Allan Poe. Can you think of a name more synonymous with spine-tingling macabre literature? A master craftsman of prose and poetry alike, Poe dwells in that dark corner of our literary consciousness, along some creaky corridor laden with dust and cobwebs. Even more than a century on, reading Poe still feels like walking a razor’s edge between grim amusement and irrevocable madness.

And now, something from our sponsor... I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what's going on. - William Burroughs
Found in Books People have found teeth, money, and bacon inside their books. Be careful what you use as a bookmark. Thousands of dollars, a Christmas card signed by Frank Baum, a Mickey Mantle rookie baseball card, a marriage certificate from 1879, a baby’s tooth, a diamond ring and a handwritten poem by Irish writer Katharine Tynan Hickson are just some of the stranger objects discovered inside books by AbeBooks.com booksellers. I recently opened a secondhand book and an airline boarding pass from Liberia in west Africa to Fort Worth, Texas, fell to the floor. Was there a story behind this little slip of paper? Was someone fleeing from a country ravaged by two civil wars since 1989?
