Viking Jesus Rides a Raptor

Either that, or it's a T. Rex and Our Savior is 20 feet tall. There were giants in the earth in those days...(yes, I have confused my testaments--on purpose!)...

In Which I Crowdsource a Syllabus

Gentle readers: if you were to teach a course in the American novel, and you had for reasons of your own decided to use only novels that run approximately 200 pages or less, what would be your top ten? I'm particularly interested in what you think is the best recent work at that length.

A Pake Recipe for Jeff Parker

...because no! You do not have to choose between pie and cake!

In a pan or skillet, melt a stick of butter.
Whisk in 1cup flour and 1cup sugar.
Add 1cup milk. Let it get hot again.
Add 1 egg if custardy pie-like texture is desired, 1tsp baking powder (or more if a cakey texture is what you're after), and whatever fruit you have lying around.
Bake at 350 (or whatever) until done.

It's different every time. Pake!
