Librarians in the Branch Library of Babel

Posted at October 29, 2011

Because it must be shared: Librarians in the Branch Library of Babel, by Shaenon K. Garrity. I’ve never read Moby Dick, but I don’t think it’s strictly required to enjoy the story.

(Because the “Related Posts” plugin didn’t pick it up, let it be known that Miss Garrity rocks my socks. Artie!)

Marc: Will glance at it eventually.

Moby-Dick is a terrific book: a melange of post-modernism, Shakespeare, and Patrick O’Brian. Highly recommended.

Also, the title of this story is clearly a reference to Borges. I read his collected fiction that Summer I was with you in Vancouver. Short stories, some very clever, all entertaining.

Did I hear a rumour that a birthday gift would be coming to Montreal eventually? I’ve finished Griftopia and Spook County in the last few weeks.
