Q: When is a Book More Than a Book?

It used to be that reading a book just meant, y’know, reading a book. Not so much anymore.

Over at the Kirkus Reviews blog, I remark on When a Book is More Than a Book.

Now at Kirkus: Gotham Central

This week over on the Kirkus Reviews Blog, I take a look at two books which may have inspired the new Fox TV Show: Gotham.

From the post:

With Gotham premiering September 22nd on Fox – and with all the positive buzz about the show – I couldn’t pass up on the chance to talk about Batman here at Kirkus.

It’s about the city which gave birth to him, and to so many other characters we’ve come to know so well. A city that breathes all on its own, and is, for all intents and purposes, a character in its own right. How do I tackle that one?

Shira Lipkin is a writer, poet, and editor in Boston; in her spare time, she volunteers with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. She attends a lot of burlesque shows, but that’s not where the glitter comes from. Her cat is bigger than her dog. Mat Joiner lives in Birmingham, England. He loves flippancy, Pierrots, ghosts and green men. He thinks “canalpunk” should be a thing but hasn’t written the manifesto yet. Their poetry has appeared in Strange Horizons, Stone Telling, Through the Gate, and other wonderful places. Together, they fight crime! Shira and Mat are also co-editors of Liminality, a new magazine of speculative poetry.

Liminality: There Is No Box

by Shira Lipkin

The thing about poetry is that poetry is a revolutionary act.

This is not what we’re taught in schools! In the US, at least, we have our Norton guides of poetry that have the same set of poems kids have been made to study for decades, for centuries. Which quite reminds us of “Introduction to Poetry” by Billy Collins:
