À mon sujetAs of August 1, 2020, I was "Currently reading" five books, and their titles all started with the letter A, and this was not by design, but pure coincidence. (Aesop's Fables; Adios, America; Animal Farm; After the Golden Age; and Again, Dangerous Visions.) The proportion of A's in written English is 8.34%, so the probability of this happening is (0.0834)^5 which is about one in 248,000.

Oxford comma, yes or no? YES.
It has clarity, style, and respect for tradition.

Initiator of the most disgusting LT thread ever, world-famous secret agent, man-about-town, plague vector.

From another of my fans:
“Truly, you are a different kind of conservative... ranging in rabidity from issue to issue, but generally if there's an side to an issue that calls for high-swinery, it calls for thee.”

About the picture: A Squid on the Chessboard, by Anders Sandberg. Used with Dr. Sandberg’s kind permission. The caption that accompanies the picture in its original context:

Oscar Valparaiso had once imagined politics as a chess game. His kind of chess game. Pawns, knights, and queens, powers and strategies, ranks and files, black squares and white squares. Studying this tape had cured him of that metaphor. Because this phenomenon on the tape was not a chess piece. It was there on the public chessboard all right, but it wasn't a rook or a bishop. It was a wet squid, a swarm of bees. It was a new entity that pursued its own orthogonal agenda, and vanished into the silent interstices of a deeply networked and increasingly nonlinear society.
- Bruce Sterling, Distraction

My tags "metafiction" and "book within a book" have some overlap, of course, e.g., Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler, but obviously they are not the same. I am trying to maintain a certain degree of anal retentiveness fastidiousness about the distinction. For example, Get Shorty is tagged "metafiction" because it frequently makes elliptical comments on itself. E.g., the last paragraph contains a comment about how hard it is to write good endings. However, there is no book within that book. In contrast, The Spiderwick Chronicles would be "book within a book" (referring to the Field Guide) but not "metafiction" because it doesn't "break the fourth wall" or have other metafiction-y features. Of course, the line is hazy in some cases.

The "story within a story" tag is to be used when the "book within a book" tag doesn't apply. The "framing narrative" tag is for works like Boccaccio's Decameron, Valente's Orphan's Tales, etc.
