This Space of Writing

The proliferating memories engage yet lack the mystique and sense of possibility
innate to fiction, and instead rely on the mystique of the author who writes it. As,
inevitably, we associate what is written with the life of a flesh-and-blood
individual suffering family bereavements and panic ... epiphanic moment of clarity
that pushed [him] through a crack in the universe”, one that marks the transition

What does 'literature' mean in our time? While names like Proust, Kafka and Woolf still stand for something, what that something actually is has become obscured by the claims of commerce and journalism. Perhaps a new form of attention is required. Stephen Mitchelmore began writing online in 1996 and became Britain's first book blogger soon after, developing the form so that it can respond in kind to the singular space opened by writing. Across 44 essays, he discusses among many others the novels of Richard Ford, Jeanette Winterson and Karl Ove Knausgaard, the significance for modern writers of cave paintings and the moai of Easter Island, and the enduring fallacy of 'Reality Hunger', all the while maintaining a focus on the strange nature of literary space. By listening to the echoes and resonances of writing, this book enables a unique encounter with literature that many critics habitually ignore. With an introduction by the acclaimed novelist Lars Iyer, This Space of Writing offers a renewed appreciation of the mystery and promise of writing.

Mystique Melodies By: V. I. Porter Greek mythology tells the story of Orpheus, son of Calliope, and his love for Eurydice. But what if that isn’t the true story? What if there’s more? In Mystique Melodies, V. I. Porter takes the familiar Greek myths and provides a new twist to the stories. Through his work, Porter uses the classic tales to create a larger focus on honesty, values, love, and commitment. With the story of Orpheus as the framework, Porter brings his own words to drive home a crucial point: let go of self-doubt. As Porter weaves his tale, readers are left to wonder about the mythology they thought they knew and what could have been.
