Brief Update: Revenants and Alchemical Monsters

Fig. 1. Strange Alchemical Images

 

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve made any updates. Real life has the habit of getting in the way. Just to keep the engine turning over, I thought I’d provide a couple of links to blog posts I put together for the nascent Pulp Impact public engagement website (of which I am a contributing editor).

http://www.pulpimpact.com/two-halves-are-better-than-one-investigating-the-alchemical-rebis/

 

The first essay is basically a brief overview of my one true academic love, medieval revenants, while the second looks at the alchemical figure of the Rebis (or ‘double thing’). Enjoy!
