Carnivale anthology

We are currently co-editing an anthology of academic essays on the HBO series Carnivale to be entitled Bloodlust and Dust. We are still finalizing the proposal and hope to be announcing the details of publication soon. Then the work of editing begins! We look forward to some great writing on this phenomenal series which was dicontinued far too soon.

We are still seeking abstracts on certain topics that are as yet underrepresented, including gender, sexuality, magic and the occult. The CFP is still available on the PennEnglish list.

Exciting news

Our book New Generation Witches: Teenage Witchcraft and Contemporary Culture is now available from Ashgate Press! You can see more information here.

It's been several years of blood, sweat and tears but finally it's out there. Our thanks to all the writers who contributed essays, to our cover photographer Berta Daniels (whose photo appears above), to Ronald Hutton for his insightful foreword, and everyone at Ashgate for being great to work with.
