Via Overland comes Karen Andrew’s sly update of Clive James’ poem, ‘The Book of my Enemy has been Remaindered’.
And here was me telling some students only a couple of days ago that one of the joys of blogging was that the status anxiety and envy that so shrivels novelists and poets’ hearts just evaporates in cyberspace. Oh foolish, utopian me.
In my post yesterday about the new look Meanjin and the Meanjin blog I omitted to mention the excellent work Jeff Sparrow and his team have been doing at Overland. It wasn’t a deliberate omission, but it was pretty remiss of me, not least because Overland began exploring the possibilities of the online environment more than a decade ago with Overland Express. That said, are there other sites I’ve forgotten? If there are please let me know.
