The Puppy of the Month Book Club kicked off last August by three men with a love of adventure fiction and a desire for a place to read and discuss works by our favorite authors. In the year since launching this blog, the literary scene has since exploded, with massive growth in the numbers of authors writing in the anti-modern styles we love, and a proliferation of blogs dedicated to such works. The literary party so long dominated by the established publishing houses and their chosen few rightfans has been crashed by wrongfans of many different stripes.
The three contributors to this blog have also seen incredible growth in their own skills and an commensurate increase in the demands on their time:
- The Frisky Pagan has penned his own book on the Commentariat and it's war on fun, and continues to write on a wide range of subject at his own site, The Emperor's Notepad.
- Jon and Nate have taken up the pen in service to the Castalia House Blog, which has become the premier blog for sci-fi and fantasy announcements, reviews, and analysis, and are now regular contributors there.
- Nate continues his in-depth analysis of the pulps at his own blog, The Pulp Archivist.
- Jon has written a few fun novels of his own, and continues posting regularly at his blog, Seagull Rising.
Thank you everyone for reading along, for all of your comments and suggestions, and for a great year. We look forward to seeing you around the digital water coolers in the future.
