Silent like the vacation from the grave…

Owl

“The librarian savoured the ephemeral calm. This year, like every other, the undergrads would be back after Easter break. The thought occurred that  either the Warden was lying when he said he changed the locks again, or the undergraduates had a tunnel into College from outside the walls and the Porters just hadn’t found it yet.” (further fragments from Oxford Noir)

  1. The best part of this is that I don’t actually need to decide between James, Chesterton, Lovecraft, Borges, or Yates. Fiction or non-fiction? Horror or satire? Vintage or po-mo? I have no idea what these are doing and I have no intention of resolving the problem. Miniscule-magic-realism is a genre isn’t it?
