Humanity will remember the name of James Joyce for generations to come, not least because, as he once wrote about his best-known novel Ulysses, "I've put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality." If Joyce was right, then the author of the mysterious Voynich manuscript (about which you can see an animated introduction here) has set a kind of standard for immortality. Filled...

Virginia Woolf & Friends Name Their Favorite and Least Favorite Writers in a Newly Unearthed 1923 Survey

Celebrity Twitter can be fun… sometimes…. Tabloids still have mass appeal, albeit mainly on the web. But for those who want to see the introverted and bookish caught off-guard and off the cuff, times are a little tough. Writers can more easily control their image than actors or pop stars, naturally. Most aren’t nearly as recognizable and subject to constant pop culture surveillance. Literary scandals rarely go beyond plagiarism or politics. Sometimes one might wish—as in the days of mean drunks...

Joe Joyce result: British heavyweight stops Bermane Stiverne to move closer to world title shot

Joe Joyce battered Bermane Stiverne to secure a sixth round stoppage victory and move closer to a world heavyweight title shot.

Expectations were high on Joyce entering the fight given Stiverne was eviscerated last time out in his rematch with Deontay Wilder 15 months ago, and seemingly sauntered through his training camp given he tipped the scales 15 pounds he...
