A word of advice: get to know this town. Macon has a tough reputation from the outside world, but it also has a rich...

‘Fifty Shades’ is bad porn and worse literature

Suzanne Stroup

August 15, 2012

I am the first to admit that I am a literary bandwagon hopper. I read the Harry Potter series in elementary school because it was cool (a good decision), “Twilight” in high school (not such a good decision) and this summer I finally succumbed to “Fifty Shades of Grey”. I heard bad things about...

The four best things of 2010

Eric Brown

February 2, 2011

I know that best of lists are kind of a year-end tradition. Pitchfork, The AV Club, and virtually every other pop culture critic in the world likes to post a list at the end of the year, recapping their top choices for that particular 12 month period.
