2005 is the fiftieth annivesary of the publication (in Greek) of Nikos
Kazantzakis's novel, "The Last Temptation of Christ." Since this time, and

1988, assessments of this work have ranged from "praiseworthy" to
"blasphemous," according to religious persuasion.

Proposals are invited for a chapter contributions to an essay collection

anthology, to be published in 2005, will be divided into two sections, one

CFP: World-Building or World-Borrowing: The universe of media tie-in fiction
An M/C Reviews "Words" Special Feature

Edited by Catriona Mills

Media tie-in fiction is the secret success story of modern publishing.
Novels based on the Star Trek and Star Wars universes routinely top the New
York Times best seller lists, but remain something of a covert pleasure. To
many, they seem to occupy an uneasy position between genre fiction and pulp.
But within the field there is a striking and vibrant diversity of style,
form and content. Clearly, there is room for critical intervention into
this phenomenon.
