Scott Edelman dines and chats with James Morrow on the new episode of EATING THE FANTASTIC.

We discussed his first novel (written when he was only seven years old!), why he feels more connected to the fiction of Arthur C. Clarke than that of Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov, his many paths not taken, including that of filmmaker, the ethical conundrum which occurred after Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. autographed a book “for Jim Morrow, who writes just like me,” how Charles Darwin “confiscated our passports,” and much more.

At BUSTLE, Sadie L. Trombetta lists Peter S. Beagle’s  among 9 Modern Greek Mythology Retellings That Will Change The Way You Think About The Classic Tales.

A modern and very lose interpretation of the myth of Persephone and Hades, Peter S. Beagle’s long-awaited novel is filled with as much magic, wonder, and excitement as the original tale. When the young and captivating Lioness arrives in Puget sound, the lives of long-time partners Abe and Joanna are changed forever. The mysterious young girl awakens something inside of them, but it doesn’t take more than a summer season for Lioness’s own dark past to start to chill the world around them. Inventive, sexy, and lyrical, SUMMERLONG will make you fall in love with myths all over again.
