2 things:
1. I love that Red Mars was one of the biggest searches to bring traffic to the site. Might not always be the right traffic, but the mixing of interests makes me happy.

2. I would not be certain that the comment about writing what you want to comes from your mother. Well, you say you're 100% certain, so what do I know, but the comment seems to me to merit consideration beyond the possible maternal platitude.

I'm fairly sure "not set" has to be stillwater,OK. I've created more than one fan down here.

Congratulations on five years of fabulousness.

Jacob: 1. I know, right?! I was surprised, but I love it too. Makes me want to return the love by finally getting around to reviewing Green Mars and Blue Mars... 2. It's more the syntax and typing flourishes that convinced me that this respondent was my mom. But it's true that I need to be cautious about letting that fact overshadow the content. Hmm...

Ben: Ha! That's great. I'm puffed and proud to have a Stillwater base!

Peg: Thank you so much!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
