column_carte-blanche Carte Blanche: Adventures Underground
By Michael Cart

I’ve just read and reviewed an exhaustive biography of Lewis Carroll—you know, the guy who wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. “Lewis Carroll” is the nom de plume of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a nineteenth-century British mathematician and Oxford don, but, of course, you know that, don’t you? I only ask because I once taught a class of graduate students who, to my horror, didn’t!

great-reads Great Reads: Living with Death
By Annie Bostrom

Life’s single guarantee—death—unifies this nonfiction list of great reads. Death touches all of us and eventually happen all of us. But these nine books, most of them published in the last five years, demonstrate that death also humbles us, teaches us, intrigues us, evades us, inspires us, grosses us out, and makes us laugh. As with many fraught and difficult topics, books about death in all its terrifying glory provide a safe place from which to peer inside and marvel.

This list of the best horror fiction reviewed between May 15, 2014, and May 1, 2015, covers the gamut, from an old-fashioned horror novel, tasting of blood and dust, to a zombie plague (what would a top 10 list be without one?) to a grisly, darkly comedic road trip.
