NPR recommends: Missing Links & Secret Histories!

MissingLinksIf you’ve ever wondered what stories the great works of literature didn’t tell, you’ll want to check out a new anthology: MISSING LINKS AND SECRET HISTORIES: A Selection of Wikipedia Entries from Across the Known Multiverse, edited by L. Timmel Duchamp.  It features the secret histories of such works as Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher” and Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness.”  You won’t be surprised to find my own contribution, “The Secrets of Flatland,” revealing the machinations of the Circles and their secret band of assassins. I was inspired by my reading of Flatland in junior high math class, of all things.  Most exciting of all, however, is the fact that NPR listed it as one of its top five summer reads for science fiction/fantasy, right next to Neil Gaiman’s THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE, which I’m definitely going to read.

Check out the MISSING LINKS AND SECRET HISTORIES anthology today, and feel free to share your thoughts below. If you could write a secret Wiki article on a great work of literature, what would it be?
