    Everyone who enjoys bending the rules raise your hand!

    Okay. Although the official deadline has officially passed for submitting proposals for the two Cormac McCarthy sessions at this coming February’s Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association soiree in Albuquerque. However, no one warned us that Cormac was going to publish a new piece in Nautilus magazine post-deadline, or that a distinguished linguist (like assonance? You’ve come to the right place!) would publish a contra piece in the same issue.

    So: we’re going to include a panel discussion of l’affaire Nautilus at one of our two sessions – we haven’t been able to figure out which one yet – and I’m actively trolling ex post factoid for folks interested in being on the panel. We need two or three more brave souls. Full papers or proposals won’t be necessary; just bring some talking points. Let me know ASAP if you’re interested. You can reach me, as always, at info@cormacmccarthy.com or, if you prefer, you can contact the session direction, Katherine Sugg, directly at suggkae@ccsu.edu (but be sure to copy me in).

    We will doubtless repair to Garcia’s, Manny’s or some other colorful local eatery afterwards to continue whatever discussion we begin at the session.

    How did this call for participants go Rick?

    And I am slightly excited and confused…are you saying there is another NAUTILUS essay by McCarthy?

    I am really looking forward to the conference. And I look forward to hearing more about this new panel. Fun!

    I’m so excited ..I just saw the preliminary schedule for the conference in New Mexico.

    The topics and presenters at this conference are so intriguing…I’m already losing my shit over the Hitchcock presentations and Joss Whedon. This conference is really like a delicious feast. Here are two McCarthy presentations….

    Katherine Sugg, the PCA area chair for McCarthy, is going to try to get the conference to find us some space for a third session devoted to the Kekule Problem essays and responses, plus (let us not forget) other enunciations of McCarthy’s concern with matters linguistic, for example, Judge Holden’s comments on the nature of words in the Chihuahua scene in Blood Meridian. We probably won’t know until early January when that panel will be but so far Katherine, Wallis Sanborn and yours truly are planning to participate. (I bet Candy finds a way onto the panel as well.)

    So that’s where we stand. Anyone else who thinks they might want to add themselves to the list – remember, we just need talking points, not a formal paper submission – let me know either via my personal email (if you have it) or via info at comacmccarthy dot com.
