News from Clarion 2004

News from my Clarion posse:

webpetals reports that her next novel, A Taste of Crimson will come out in August, 2005. Yay!

Peter Burtis is starting a webzine for dark science fiction, Shadows of Saturn. It will debut in April. Writer's guidelines here. Pays pretty well.


meaning: criticize, strike, pass

文芸批評 == bungeihihyou == literary criticism, book review
批判 == hihan == (noun) criticism, judgement, comment

Left radical is one of the radical versions of 'hand'. Right radical is 'compare' (比), which acts phonetically to express 'strike'. Thus, 'to strike with the hand', leading to meanings such as 'criticize'. 'Pass' apparently is derived from the idea of examining something critically. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Criticism can involve a handy comparison.'
