Word Hoard is soliciting articles, essays, interviews, short fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and other publishable works on the theme of "Scum and Villainy" for our fifth issue. (Please find our previous issues at http://ir.lib.uwo.ca/wordhoard). We believe both "scum" and "villainy" have social, ethical, and epistemological implications reaching far beyond literary and popular tropes, and thus far beyond the lush taxonomy of opportunistic or conniving archetypes (e.g., muggers, grifters, the debased; psychopaths, traitors, the corrupt). Characterizations of "scum" or "villainy" interest us far more than literary characters as "scum" or "villains."

Mythcon 47, Omni Colonnade, San Antonio, TX. Guests of Honor: Midori Snyder (author) and Andrew Lazo (scholar). http://mythcon.org. Inspired by the 60th anniversary of C.S. Lewis's Till We Have Faces and The Last Battle, this year's theme focuses on the mythology that has shaped and "given faces" to so many of our beloved characters, ranging from the myths of the Ancient Greeks to the legends of the Middle Ages and even to the modern mythology of the American Southwest. Similarly, this mythological influence is also evident in the works of many of our favorite mythopoeic authors, from J.R.R. Tolkien to J.K. Rowling, from Ursula K. Le Guin to Alan Garner, and many, many more.
