Rubenstein, Carnivalesque, etc

Here are a few things that I've neglected to blog about:

Hooray for Jay Rubenstein for his MacArthur "Genius" Award! A half million bucks rolling into the medieval world is probably a good thing for all of us.

Carnivalesque XXXI is up, hosted by Tiruncula.

In the Middle introduces us to Wrætlic. Welcome, Dan Remein!

According to a new book, Joan d'Arc somehow managed to sneak away and was not burnt at the stake. No word yet on whether she also married Mary Magdalene. Via Treading Water.

Michael Drout has a post about Beowulf as a franchise ... and given the McFarland figurines, I think he's right. As the new Zemeckis Beowulf film will be released on November 16th, I have a feeling we'll all be Beobloggling a great deal through Thanksgiving.
